    Feel free to make an offer, all trades will be considered. I am moving from my small NYC apartment to a new and slightly smaller apartment so let's get this bad boy a new home too.

    Asking $3999. Deals for TGPers! PM me

    This is my 2015 Equator Instruments Standard Model. If you are looking to get a guitar in the style of Trey Anastasio's custom built Languedoc G2 then this guitar is for you! This guitar came in from Ecuador mid September 2015 and is all hand made.

    Even more, this guitar was finished and set up by master Luthier Matt Artinger of Artinger Custom Guitars. He did the frets, he did the electronic installation, and he did the set up so you can believe it plays like a master built instrument! It has Electric City RD 59 REVIVAL pickups with switching wired for parallel/series/humbucker options. Check out the pics on his bench. The pickup rings are Brazilian Rosewood and were custom ordered from Bill Nichols of Nichols Inlay.

    This is a very special guitar, and I am sad to see it go. It just doesn't get the playing time it deserves. It lives in its case inside a smoke free, pet free, climate controlled environment. Sadly the guitar has one small blemish, a small scratch on the treble side binding. This was made by my watch at a moment of distraction (first and last time I wear a watch on my right hand). I have tried to capture it in the included photos.

    If you are interested in Equator Instruments then skip the 2+ year waiting period and grab this one today! PM me for any additional questions or offers.

    An Equator without actually having to deal (and deal and deal and deal) with the luthier is worth a bump right here!
