New Shergolds to debut this weekend at UK Guitar Show

Among the attractions at this coming weekend’s The UK Guitar Show in Birmingham (23rd and 24th February) will be a first ever chance to see Shergold’s brand new ‘Provocateur’models, destined to reach UK retailers in April this year.

In line with the award-winning Masquerader guitars, Shergold’s Provocateur models have been designed by British luthier Patrick James Eggle and are the first in the Shergold range to feature a single cut design. The initial launch is based around two pickup configurations both available in three colour finishes.

Made with a solid mahogany body and featuring a solid torrified mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard, a custom PJE-designed bridge, hand-inlaid aluminium fret inlays and staggered, locking machineheads, distributor Barnes & Mullins says: ‘The Shergold Provocateur is a bona fide rock guitar and the much anticipated second instalment in the modern re-invention of the legendary guitar brand’.

Pickup configurations come in the form of Patrick Eggle’s personal choice of genuine USA-made Seymour Duncan P90 (neck) and ‘Pearly Gates’ (bridge) pickups in the SP01-SD model and two ’59 humbuckers loaded in the SP02-SD. All bridge humbuckers feature a push/pull coil tap.

Prices will be £829 for the P90/Humbucker equipped SP01-SD Provocateur and £809 for the double humbucker equipped SP02-SD. Visitors to The Guitar Show can get hands on with the new Provocateur as well as the current Masquerader series at stand D9.
