Another SA-5 with the bridge pickup 'reversed'. Noticed that on a few of them... wonder why... Mine came like that but I put it back to normal again.
Cheers Stringmeister.

Your profile picture needs an update, the bridge pickup is turned like the one on ebay. :wink:

Found the original guitar cable it came with.
After a quick soldering job it’s back in action.

Looks to be in really nice condition. Out of my price range right now though :(

Interesting, 1158 makes it the highest serial number in the SA-5 database so far. Previous one was 1146. First non SA-5 I have after 1158 is an SA30 with SN 1292

Asking an awful lot though!

Glad to hear you still have it!
I read up about the SA’s on your site. Thanks for the info. What a tone these things make!
Do you know much about the wiring and pots used, or the type of wood the body and neck are?
She’s almost mint and for sure my new favorite guitar!
you're already selling your new favorite guitar!

Lovely SA-5 on Reverb (756) but where do they get their pricing info from?

It is a beaut but surely no one is going to pay that much.

From the hype on this forum probably. That is the former “new favorite guitar” of ambient overlord.

Yeah, that has happened a few times to me... get bombarded with questions on my website and that it is such a great guitar only to find out it is a blimmin dealer....

I trust the overlord will come down to earth pretty soon...
