Please note: due to changes in regulations and constant design developments, we sometimes need to change details such as binding and inlay materials.
This is Tristan's first Fylde, made for him in 2008. It's had plenty of use both live and in the studio and sounds rather lovely. The action is low, which of course will suit some people. (It suits Tristan very well indeed). We will refret it before we send it out and might tidy up some minor marks in the finish, but only if the new owner wants us to. I like it as it is.
Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, the grain patterns and colours being very much "old school" rather than the more exotic material often seen nowadays. It arrived with me via a well-known and trusted source and I still have some from the same log. The centre section of the back is Macassar Ebony. The soundboard is exceptional fine grained Englemann Spruce. The neck is 45mm wide at the nut, laminated with Mahogany and Rosewood lines and with a Brazilian Rosewood head veneer. It has a Headway FEQ pickup.
Tristan now plays his latest Fylde, the fan fret Goodfellow, exclusively and is downsizing his collection a little, plus he has plans!! Yes, a musician with plans. Whatever next?
Tristan is asking £5,800 ono. SOLD It's a guitar with the right sort of history and "track" record, such things are usually kept forever so this is a very rare opportunity.
