ABOUT THIS GUITAR.
SHERGOLD COMPANY:
From online public sources- Shergold was a little-known guitar company started in 1967 by Jack Golder and Norman Houlder, who had both previously worked for Burns. They were located in Harold Wood, East London for most of their professional career. Some models introduced by Shergold were the  Masquerader, the Modulator (with active electronics), and the Custom Double, a twin neck guitar available in several different neck combinations (made famous by Mike Rutherford). The Masquerader is the best known and most numerous of Shergold’s models, but is still very rare.
 
These were specialist order models and only 100 or so 6 string basses were ever made, and even less for the 8 string model. The 8 string model featured four pairs of strings over the standard width bass neck. The 6 string model had a 5mm addition to the width of the neck to accommodate the strings, and a brass nut.
THIS GUITAR IS IN PRISTINE CONDITION. PLEASE LOOK AT PHOTOS. COMES WITH HARDSHELL CASE. DOES NOT SEEM TO BE ORIGINAL ACCORDING TO SHERGOLD INFORMATION FOUND ONLINE.
 
FLAT SHIPPING CHARGE OF $65.00 FOR SHIPMENT TO ANY US CONTINENTAL LOCATION BY USPS (and please understand that your tracking number may not show shipment progress within the first 72 hours of the shipment-I consider that a bit idiotic but they tell me that "they cannot track every package every minute").

About TUNE YOUR SOUND.
You can find us on the internet but I can't put the link here in accordance with ebay policies. But if you were to look up tuneyoursound, I'm pretty sure you would find us.
TYS is a joint venture between a couple of guitar collectors who both share a passion for rock and roll music and the instruments used to make that music. Fortunately the two of us have been able to afford to buy the best examples of these instruments we could find. Many are one off, celebrity owned, and unique. And yes, we own a lot of guitars-together we are closing in on the 2,000 mark. But we have decided it is time to share our the fruits of our passion with other likewise smitten players and collectors, so please keep checking our auctions for more unbelievable pieces.

ABOUT TUNEYOURSOUND. Tune Your Sound Sound Your Tune Guitars make Sounds ! Guitar players make Tunes. But which guitar makes your Tune best?The beginning point in making a tune is You. The music in your head goes to your hands which form chords and notes. The end point is the Tune heard by those listening created by the Sounds of the instruments in between. Our job at TuneYourSound.com (TYS) is to fill in the middle. Or, in other words, "complete the chain". We are guitar players and collectors at TuneYourSound.com. Collectively we have personally owned and played over 1800 guitars. And we have seen guitar players play-from Jimi using his teeth to Jimmy using his bow. And now, we want to tell you what we have learned over the years and under the stages. First: There should be two primary guitars in your life. The one you start with (by choice or coincidence) and the one you finish with (once you find it, you'll know it and keep it). But of course, humans are acquisitive by nature, so we are prone to own more than we need-but a guitar player must have what he really needs. Two: Sometimes it's better for a guitar to be heard than seen and other times it's better for a guitar to be seen than heard. So, play it both ways. Buy a guitar that does both. Three: Avoid the hype. Especially now with the Internet overloading us with data. Buy a guitar that you trust from someone you trust. Four: Make it personal. Establish a relationship with your seller. That way you will never be disappointed-nor abandoned. After all, it is still about money-your money. And you deserve to get more than you give. At TuneYourSound.com, we have the answer!
