ESSEX SX ASH2R ELECTRIC GUITAR
The inspiration behind the SX ASH2R electric guitar is obvious and this interpretation of the classic offset double cutaway ‘SC’ type guitar is a beauty.
The gorgeous two piece Louisiana Swamp Ash body has been beautifully matched and finished in a classy gloss lacquer.
Three single coil pickups and a five way selector switch offers classic single coil tones in positions 1, 3 and 5. High gain tones are tamed with positions 2 and 4. Overall, the SX ASH2R works equally well for rock, country, funk, blues or jazz.
Hard Canadian Maple is used for the neck and fingerboard – the fingerboard features 21 Nickel Silver frets.
At this price this guitar represents outstanding value. As with many guitars sold today, the only area that requires attention is the setup and our price not only includes free Australia-wide shipping, it also includes our renowned Pro-SCM setup.
While the quality of this instrument shines through in spades, we like to think of our inhouse Pro-SCM setup as icing on the cake. Our skilled Guitar Technicians will check and adjust anything that requires attention. Our Pro-SCM setup includes:
• Check and adjust the action to factory specifications
• Check and rectify any buzzing, intonation or playability issues
• Check and adjust the nut and bridge string heights
• Hand roll the fret ends and polish the frets
• Test electronics, pots and switches for correct function
• Inspect instrument construction and condition of the strings
• Ensure mechanical devices work properly including tremelo systems and tuners
• Tune to pitch
As a paid service, this is worth at least $132 and it’s included in our price – that’s the southcoastmusic difference!
