2007 Monaco Elite f/s $1300 plus shipping


Recommended Posts

I just wrecked my car and have no money to fix it... I hit somebody else during rush hour going to a job interview... and I don't have a job.

It's the one in this video... still has the SD Antiquities installed. I'll take pictures tomorrow.

I know a bunch of guys who read this and just like me, experience for the first time the desire to buy a guitar for a reason that is not selfish. « Hey honey, we really ought to help that guy out »! 
The creative playing in that video makes it stick out from traditional reviews, in addition to the good tone…

That’s very kind of you. The last guitar I sold has already changed hands twice... I don’t want anyone to buy this if they don’t actually want it... very very kind of anyone to purchase something they don’t really want or need.

I'll take it from you Zen, I've always regretted selling mine. 

I'll give you a call. Pming now. 

ETA: If you still have those 6 inline Sperzels I sold you I'll buy them back too.

It literally twisted around... I’ve never owned a Les Paul so I never realized people cared as much about the switch directionality.

pretty sure that oversight cost me my job at Seymour Duncan.

I just told people I wired it backwards... the toggle was sort of loose and I twisted it up but didn’t realize I had twisted it where it was backwards. The video to this day gets a shit ton of people thinking I don’t know my bridge pickup from my neck pickup.

Live and learn I guess.

Im working poor and my mother was a waitress... my brother, mom and I shared a tiny one bedroom apartment. I was always the poorest kid in my neighborhood and school. The point is...

Ive never even played a fucking Gibson... never even held one in my hands. I’m not from the income class that can afford Gibsons. I poured my entire first and last Seymour Duncan check into that Monaco Elite and a Studio Custom... dumb idea since they shit canned me after a month.

I still worked for them as a freelance contractor to do the Whole Lotta Humbucker set, ‘59 Custom Hybrid, Pearly Gates and Antiquity Humbucker videos though... the pay was small and I didn’t even get paid to do the Antiquity Tele video I did for them. I did some graphic design for them afterwards but they cut ties with me.

just as every other company I’ve ever worked with has. Oh well, I guess I am just a horrible piece of shit. Even Shishkov didn’t want another video for free. I can’t even give away my services. I guess that’s what I get for giving 110%.
 

Born with a wooden spoon in my mouth... die with a wooden spoon.

Just bust your ass and give everything you’ve got and you’ll get ahead in life? Absolute fucking horseshit.

My memory may be failing me. But I THINK that is the one you bought from me, way back when. A great guitar and, IIRC, chambered and fairly light. I did like the stock pickups, but the Antiquities are THE Duncan model that never disappointed me in any guitar. The new owner will be very happy with it!

   Don't beat yourself up over the freelance stuff,  the artistic/creative field is incredibly rough, particularly if it's a cool

industry.

People can be really narrow-minded. It's not like the positions are marked like the poker chips on LPs, whichever works best for the player should always be the objectively "correct" way to do it. 

I just find that when switching from rhythm to lead (neck to bridge) it's usually following a down strum.  With the switch above the strings, it's easier for me to flick it with my thumb on the up stroke, then go straight into picking.

I'm so sorry about that.  One of my best friends leaned on me pretty hard to get me to sell it to him.  He didn't even tell me he was selling it.
