2014 Edwards E-SN-130M 3S Burner & new hard case 



Edwards guitars are made in Japan by ESP. You won't see very many in the UK & every one of those I have seen has been an import. As far as I am aware, Edwards guitars are generally close replicas of USA guitars & as such, they are just made for the Japanese domestic market. What I will say about them is that they are built to a really high standard & not only that, they are usually fitted with USA pickups & electrics (CTS pots & switches) and Japanese GOTOH hardwear. This particular guitar has USA Seymour Duncan pickups. That's a lot of guitar for the money!

The Edwards "Burner" really is a quality guitar from ESP. The scorched finish really highlights the two piece swamp Ash body. It looks fab. The SSL pickups from Seymour Duncan sound great & the guitar has the added advantage of a "push/push" middle switch which acts like a boost. Really handy

The guitar has no chips, dings, scratches or anything else that I could find & it is ideal for those players who want a Stratocaster that's just a little different. Here's the spec..

PRICE IN JAPAN: 130,000 yen (That's £866 GBP without case, or duty)

It is possible to switch easily to one of two modes, NORMAL MODE, which can enjoy the sound of three normal single pickups, and CUSTOM MODE which can enjoy powerful sound, with a single switch.

NORMAL MODE is a total of five kinds of sounds, one for each pickup and half tone (parallel connection) between adjacent pickups.

With CUSTOM MODE, the sound at the normal bridge and neck position becomes the series connection sound with the adjacent pickup, and at the other 3 positions, the output is only the middle position. You can switch to two different timbres.

A total of seven different timbres can be output with one guitar.

Please try pressing the tone knob of the middle pickup lightly. The pot which is used is the switch pot of Push-Push. NORMAL MODE is in the retracted state, CUSTOM MODE is in the state where it protrudes. The 5 WAY pickup selector will work according to MODE.

Thomann Black Hard Case 

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that i won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the paypal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
