David Nichols 00 Style Steel String Guitar, 2002

David Nichols 00 Style Steel String Guitar, 2002

This David Nichols OO style guitar demonstrates Nichol’s high degree of familiarity with pearl inlay – it looks like it was easy for the builder to do, a sure sign that it isn’t. This David Nichols OO style guitar is a great example. Dave Nichols has spent decades doing custom inlay work, including a lot for the Martin Guitar company, and he’s chosen the classic designs and here, the ‘Style 41’ inlay set executed in Mother of Pearl and Abalone.

SOLD‼ PRS 513 Solidbody Carved Top Amber, 2008

SOLD‼ PRS 513 Solidbody Carved Top Amber, 2008

Like all of Paul Reed Smith’s models, the PRS 513 starts with a great design, executed with top grade woods and parts and topped with an impeccable finish. Now discontinued, this model was built from 2007 to 2016. This PRS 513 dates to 2008 and is in good condition. It is not entirely original as the stock tuners have been replaced with PRS Phase II locking models. The top finish is in good shape but there is some buckle or rivet rash on the back. Fret wear is light.
