Death [Metal Rock] is Upon Us...
1982 Barry Collier Rebeth Gothic Cross with Ram's Head Pentagram
This is probably the most unusual 'custom' guitar we have ever offered for sale… featuring a specially shaped 2 inch thick, 19 1/2 x 19 1/2 'Gothic Cross' body of 'ancient' mahogany with a laminated maple top. One-piece bolt-on mahogany neck with a nut width of just under 1 11/6 inches, a medium to thick profile and a scale length of 25 1/2 inches. Ebony fretboard with 22 original jumbo frets and rhombus shaped maple inlays with ebony circles as position markers. Gothic-shaped headstock with brass 'gothic' shaped (false) truss-rod cover with two screws. Individual Schaller M6 machine tuning heads with kidney-shaped brass buttons. The neck is secured to the body by a metal plate with six screws and two rivets. The body and neck of the guitar are finished in black with feint gold pinstripe around the body and the headstock. Three DiMarzio D Activator Humbucking pickups with brass surrounds and outputs of approximately 4.33k each. Specific brass six saddle, individually adjustable bridge and specific brass tailpiece secured to the body by ten screws. There are also three matching brass plates complementing the Gothic design, one either side of the bridge pickup and one behind the bridge. On the back of the body is a seven inch diameter brass plaque engraved with a pentogram encircling a goat's head in the center. The total length of the guitar is 41 inches. There are no controls for the electrics and the input jack is mounted on a gothic-style brass plate to the lower bass edge of the body. There are three gothic-shaped brass plates on the bass, treble and lower edges and also eight bras plates on the four 'cut-outs'. Although there are no controls, the three pickups have been wired together and this is a fully functional axe with surprising playability (apart from the action being a little on the high side) and a very full sound. This piece was built to look 'old' and is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition. Housed in a black gig-bag (9.00). (#1687)
