I am selling my gorgeous Spear Evil Monkey SHL1-Q. I have customized it greatly by replacing all the original gold hardware with black, replaced the SD JB with an EMG 85, replaced all the original wiring with EMG supplied wiring, copper plated the control cavity and pickup cavity, replaced the original shoddy tuners with black Wilkinson EZ Loks, replaced the plastic nut with a Graph tech trem nut, and I will be including my £25 black velvet Get'm Get'm strap with the guitar. I have also replaced the strap pins with a strap lock system similar to the old "Fender washer" system, it looks and works great

It looks killer with the black hardware and it was setup professionally not 3 weeks ago with a set of Ernie Ball S.T.H.B. strings. It plays amazingly, perfect action up and down the fret board, really good for chunky rhythm or leads too. Stays in tune perfect with the new tuners and nut and the 85 sounds AMAZING (I put an 85 in it as I am a big Killswitch fan and I believe the 85 sounds less nasal and warmer then the 81).

It is in mint condition, there is a mark on the 11th fret but I have never really noticed it, it is flush with the finger board so doesn't affect playing, and you can hardly see it. I think it may have been where a dot inlay was accidentally put on then covered up.

I am thouroughly regretting having to sell my girl. I have to so I can buy an acoustic. I am an actor/musician and after receiving many auditions for parts that require me to take a guitar to the audition and having to borrow someone elses I have decided its best I buy my own. Therefore I have to say goodbye to this beautiful baby.

You cant quite see the design on the front of the guitar in the pictures because of the shine, but it looks awesome, I assure you. Anyone who buys this will be laughing, it is possibly the best guitar I have ever owned next to a LTD EC-1000 Deluxe!

hmmm, I'm listening. What kind of price you pay for the Samick, I checked it out and seems nice. If a swap was in the question where abouts in the country are you?
