Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 2011 RH Custom African Limba! With blinding speed, ferocious attack, heavenly sustain and other-worldly tone, this S Spalt model delivers the goods in heaping portions every time you plug it in. The neck is sculpted extremely well and finished in a way that leaves your fretting hand with zero worries. The pickups drop serious bombs no matter what style you play and have some killer flexibility wired into their set up. The tremolo bridge is ready for anything from light feathering to over the top wailing. This axe will do well for any player that is looking to shred in a serious way.

Item Details

Pay attention because this axe has a lot going on! The one piece African Limba body is an outrageous looker as you can see with tons of character on the top for all to see. The neck is made of lightly quilted western maple, and features a slightly beefier than normal C-ish profile. It measures .85" at the 1st fret and .95" at the 12th fret. Similar measurements to an old school Tele, Les Paul or PRS Wide Fat profile. Next, the neck features a Zebrawood fretboard with abalone dot inlays and stainless steel frets! Too cool! A set of Rocket "Old School" Humbuckers are dishing out some seriously rocking tones and are wired with a push / pull pot for coil splitting. Other standout features include CTS pots, 3 way blade switch, Vitamin Q oil and paper capacitor, a Wilkinson tremolo bridge, gold hardware and a tweed hard shell case. Note: the truss rod on this guitar is reverse thread, something to keep in mind for future maintenance work. Serial number : 1168 can be found in the neck pocket.

Overall Condition

This RH Custom African Limba custom guitar is in mint condition with the exception of 2 extremely faint pick scratches. You cannot even see these unless you really go looking for them. Otherwise the guitar is mint.
 
Rick Harrison custom builds these amazing guitars, and they are extremely rare, hard to come by, and quite expensive, which is well justified by quality of material and craftsmanship that goes into these pieces.  New, you'll see these selling in the $6000-$7000 range.  Pick this beauty up as a used gem and save big!
