❌SOLD❌ Moser ‘Red Eye’ Graphic, 1989


Instrument Categories: , , ,

This Neal Moser ‘Red Eye’ model features one of the more distinctive and unusual finishes we’ve seen, and these were a specialty of Moser while working with GMW Guitar Works.

Neal Moser has a long and varied history in the guitar business. While working with Bernardo Rico, Moser met Wayne Charvel. This led to an introduction to Lee Garver, owner of GMW Guitar Works in Glendora, California, and Dan Lawrence, owner of DRL Graphics and GMP Guitars in nearby San Dimas. Subsequently, a wide range of instruments with spectacular custom graphics started appearing, sold by GMW.

This Moser Red Eye seems to come from this period, and so we’re placing it to around 1989. It is in pristine condition, with no appreciable wear or damage. The body is likely Alder, paired with a Jackson-style Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard and ‘shark fin’ Mother of Pearl position markers. The tuners are black and Jackson branded. The locking trem system is a licensed Floyd Rose design built by Kahler in the USA. There is a single pickup, single volume control, and an output jack. As the graphics extend to both the pickup cover and trim ring, it’s hard to say what the pickup is.

Looking at this guitar, there is an interesting detail. The string’s ball ends are at the tuners. This is done to shorten the time required to prepare strings for use on a Floyd-style locking bridge. The ball ends are fed through the tuner and the locking nut, and only the far end of the string has to be clipped to length.

Sold with a G&G Fender style case, also in excellent condition.
