Time for a couple of my guitars to find new homes.

Gibson R6 Les Paul - Murphy Aged

If my reading of the Serial Number is correct, (6 0xxx), this makes this a guitar built in the year 2000.
It is typical Gibson fare, mahogany body and neck, rosewood board (I assume Indian rosewood). The frets are excellent with no its or grooves.

The guitar has some heft, tipping the scales at just under 9Ibs 6oz. Acoustically it is loud and really resonant.

The ageing particularly to the top and headstock is really authentic, the guitar looks likes something from the 50's.

The guitar has the black Gibson Art Historic case and certficate. Whilst the body has a few bumps, I genuinely could not tell you what was there as part of the ageing process or what has been picked up in the last 19 years. Suffice to say when not being played it has been stored in it's case and has lived in a smoke free home whilst in my charge.

£4000 ono.

Patrick Eggle Macon flat top DC

Mahognany neck and back with a quilted Sapele top
The neck carve is a Fat C - chunky but extrememly comfortable. The fingerboard is Macassar ebony with 22 tall narrow frets (they feel like 6105's to me).
Power is supplied by two Mojo pickups, a P90 in the neck and humbucker in the Bridge. I know from conversations with Pat that he likes the bridge pickups to have more power than a PAF, closer to say JB territory - what I can say is the this these pickups react well to volume and tone adjustments, and combined with the coil split via the tone control on the bridge pickup, a lot of variation is available.

Weight wise, the guitar tips the scales at 7Ibs 0.3oz and acoustically this is another guitar that is loud with plenty of natural sustain. There is one small ding on the back of the upper body that I can make out, but other than that the instrument is in excellent condition and comes with a Patrick Eggle branded case. 

£1950 ono. £1850.

PRS McCarty 594

Mahogany body and neck, Indian rosewood fingerboard and maple top finished in faded whale blue and with a black back. 
For a non 10 top guitar there is a lot of movement in the figure. 
No chips or dents on the guitar, instrument is completely stock and comes with PRS hard case and all associated case candy.

£2200 ono. £2100

I am not looking for trades on either of these instruments - I am just looking to create some room in the house and free up some space for some more guitars that are currently incoming.

I would prefer collection, but would courier. PayPal or bank transfer would be preferred, I am willing to go 50/50 on PayPal fees.

I would potentially entertain trades for Tyler's or Tom Anderson Classic's.
