Gil Yaron STRAT – Just 7 pounds! Near Mint Condition

Impossibly rare Gil Yaron STRAT.  I was told this was a 2018 but one can never be 100% certain so no promises.  It can’t be very old because it smells new and has barely any wear on it.  JUST 7lbs…even….that means no ounces.  (don’t you love people who say ‘ahhh..can you ccheck the weiightttttt”…..do you think I can’t weigh a guitar?).

Hand carved 1-Piece ASH Body..and it is finished with a thin thin nitro vintage 2-tone sunburst that just looks alive.  The Neck is a wonderful piece of Flame Maple. This instrument just vibrates in your hand.  I put on a set of 10s and you can almost think they are 9s.  The neck is awesome with a 9.5 Radius and a 1.66″ Nut (I measured it…see…exact measurements…imagine that…watch now some hayseed will ask me if my calipers have been calibrated..and by who).

I am super lucky that my store carries all the hardest to find brands of boutique guitars.  I FIND them…it takes time and relationships (always buying if you catch my drift).  My service is to help you make sure you select the right guitar for you.  No two of the same brand sound alike…now layer in all the brands.

Right now I have in Yaron, Echopark, Detemple, D’Pergo, Tyler, Callaham, Underwood & Nacho. I can play these through a variety of modern and vintage amps to attempt to replicate your personal playing situation. From there we can have a conversation to find the RIGHT guitar for you.

2018 James Tyler Studio Elite HD

2018 James Tyler Studio Elite HD in SUPER COOL Barn Finish.  This nonsmoking guitar comes with its original hardshell case and Cert.  It is a Swamp Ash body with a Quartersawn Maple Neck.  This particular Tyler is FAT sounding like THICK…and let’s face it all Tylers sound great but they’re all different.

Standard ’59 Neck C-profile measuring .845″ – .975″.  The nut is 1-5/8″ and the frets are the typical Tyler Large frets.  You can see all the specs and a detailed condition sheet in the PICTURES.  

I think the untold story of Tylers is that they are probably the BEST sounding guitars through modeling amps like a Kemper or Fractal.   They just come alive…I played this one through my Axe3 and it was magic.

2017 James Tyler Studio Elite HD – Burning Water

I go out of my way to acquire James Tyler Guitars….they should make me a dealer because I’ve sold a zillion of them but I don’t have a storefront so alas I am but a jobber in their eyes.  The COOL fact about Tylers is they sound probably as good as any guitar I’ve tried when played through modeling technology such as an Axe-fx.  Lots of guitars sound wonderful through amps then lousy through a Kemper or Fractal….NOT James Tylers.   This one has a perfect airiness to the single coils while that hum has some girth and snarl.

PLEASE SEE THE PICTURES FOR A DETAILED SPEC / CONDITION SHEET 

This one has a solid Mamywo Body and the guitar weighs in a just 7lb-1 ounce.  The Neck is 1-piece Quartersawn Maple satin finish with a Standard ’59 (.845″ – .975″) profile.  Compound Radius, Heavy Frets and a 1-5/8″ Nut.  The PIckups are JTS 5500 Singles and a SUPER in the bridge.  I happen to love the G2TS Trem because it’s comfortable and has super fine adjustments while staying in tune.  How do they do that?

Of course this comes with the Cert & LOGO hardshell original case (AND YES THE F’n TREM BAR)

Sorry I won’t take pictures outside in the natural daylight…unless you can prove to me you’re playing the next US Festival and need to mix well with the spring air.

Gil Yaron “Gilyaron” Singlecut

First off…let me say YES THE HEADSTOCK SHAPE IS FROM THE FACTORY & NOT “MODDED” By the original owner.

My lucky day is pretty much anytime the UPS or Fed Ex guy arrives (which is almost daily).  But TODAY it was an extra giddy up day!   Got this ‘Gilyaron’ logo Gil Yaron and it’s in Near Mint Condition with original hard form fit case (of course).   Can I just tell you these are the top of the LP Food Chain if you are looking for that traditional look/feel/tone.  There REALLY is a difference.  I’ve had the Gibsons…Gibsons modded with every pickup available….but the Yarons are something special.  Ask yourself why they are almost never for resale?….and now he isn’t making them because…well let’s just say he was asked once nicely to stop.

This one weighs in at just 8lb-1oz.  Light Factory aging.  Brazilian Board.  C-Neck Profile of .89″-.1.01″.  No fretwear. No mods & no repairs.  Smells new.

The finish on this is so thin it feels like you’re touching the wood.  Not that Gibson plasticized feel…..even when Gibson tries to finish a guitar like the old ones…well they just don’t.

Now like all handmade instruments, this one sounds different from every other one.  They can vary quite a lot.  SO, contact me…let me know the main amp you’re going to use and type of music.  Let me help you understand what the tone of this guitar will sound like in a similar format.  I’ve been doing this sort of consulative sale for 10 years.  It is a different experience.  Don’t kid yourself by saying ‘I’m sure they are all nice”…….yeah they are…but this is a very expensive instrument….why not work with someone who places instruments consultatively.
