What a wonderful guitar!  A top personal recommendation for anyone looking for a guitar that breaks the mold stylistically.  Such a cool guitar that knows its not living in the 1950s any more!!  If you want a shorter scale single cut with contemporary styling - but quality is as important to you as looks - this is the guitar for you.

What a wonderful guitar!  A top personal recommendation for anyone looking for a guitar that breaks the mold stylistically.  Such a cool guitar that knows its not living in the 1950s any more!!  If you want a shorter scale single cut with contemporary styling - but quality is as important to you as looks - this is the guitar for you.

Where do I start?  If you look through all the photos you start to get a sense of the style and attention to detail.  Starting with the headstock.  Locking machine heads give you quick string replacement but also improved tuning stability.   The angle of the headstock is another fantastic development.  Rather than the neck pitching backwards which not only results in tuning instability - it also makes the headstock more susseptable to break off when it gets a wack.  The forward leaning headstock on this model ensure the strings remain straight over nut so less friction.  If you then look at the headstock design it is shaped specifically to ensure the strings remain parallel and true - again improving tuning stability!!!  So the combination of locking machine heads, headstock pitch and design all contribute to this guitars stunning tuning stability.

The Shergold SP01SD Provocateur 1 has its solid mahogany body loaded with USA-made Seymour Duncan SP90 and SH-PG1B Pearly Gates Humbucker pickups. This configuration delivers a tone that sings with a vintage voice and oozes bucket loads of growl and Texas mojo when desired.

It features a truly vintage scale length with a roasted mahogany neck and Macassan ebony fingerboard. The Thru-Gloss colour options offer a glimpse into the Provocateur’s tonal core with the grain of the mahogany body visible through the immaculate high-gloss sheen finish

Trust me - this guitar is a gem of a working instrument for pro players.  Available in the p90 / HB combination and twin HB pickups (SP02)
