In Feb 2024 I will be re-releasing an upgraded version of The New Islington. I am very excited to get this guitar out there! It will consist of the following as standard - customisation options also listed with prices.
Neck - 24.75 bolt on neck made from roast maple and rosewood with brass and MoP inlays. Medium C shaped neck with a very slight flattening of the back for greater comfort and 12" radius. Can also have 24.75 and 27" scale length on request.
Body - Standard price is for Obeche which is fast becoming my favourite timber. Its super light weight and looks great. Guitars generally weigh between 3kg (6.5lbs) and 3.5kg (8lbs) depending on hardwear. Upgrade to the classic swamp ash for an extrra £150 - a little heavier but has the most beautiful grain.
Pickups - 2 pickups from Green Pickups of Manchester. I have been working closely with him to produce a range of signature Ancoats pickups (so watch this space) but he also winds all the classics. We can discuss this after purchase.
Hardware - Gotoh locking tuners, ABM3250 bridge (or upgrade to Goldo trem), CTS pots, switchcraft 3 way. Hardware is always the best available.
Colour - choice of 210 colours from Little Green Paint Company. Finished in satin with my signature Future Relic thin skin finish. This can be discussed after purchase or let me know in the additional comments box.
Upgrade to Goldo trem and roller bridge for £250.
Comes packaged safely in an ABS hardcase.
The New Islington was the guitar that started it all for me so I've been really careful to keep its essence but also bring it line with the my other model and how I see the brand progressing.
Limited options on the order form here but all can be sorted after purchase - or get in touch directly with me to discuss options.
For a limited time order now with the discount code NITENOFF for 10% off. Offer valid until end of February.
Shipping - Uk =£40, Europe= £80, US =£140.
