Mercurio Proto1 Trans Red Flame Top Guitar w/ Interchangeable Pickups #50808

Availability: In stock



WORKING CONDITION: Very Good - Plays amazing. This is a very well-made, hand-crafted instrument. The action is really nice throughout the neck and a joy to play. All of the controls and interchangeable pickups are working properly. Tonally this guitar sounds incredible as well. However, the volume knob is a bit scratchy when turning it, even after being exercised. In all, everything is fully functional and in very good working condition. 

 Excellent - This guitar comes equipped with interchangeable pickups. There are some minor abrasions around the body of the guitar. One of the neck screws is missing. See pics. Otherwise, everything is expertly crafted, well-kept, and perfectly intact. The overall physical condition is excellent.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: This listing is for a Mercurio Proto1 Trans Red Electric Guitar w/ Interchangeable Pickups

This item comes out of the personal gear arsenal of famed musician and producer, Oliver Leiber. Techno Empire is proud to present this item on his behalf as it comes right out of his Los Angeles Recording studio to yours!

Only made from 2003 to 2005 in, Mercurio Guitars were very High-End guitars. They featured an interchangeable pickup system. Each pickup is housed in a "module" that features volume leveling, impedance matching, and support both active and passive pickups.

A Pickup Pak is a cleverly designed module that contains an entire configuration of pickups. It has no control electronics on it and is very lightweight, and compact, fitting in the palm of your hand. It takes only seconds to snap out one Pickup Pak and snap in another differently configured Pak offering new and different sound possibilities. You can change Pickup Paks™ without even having to unplug your cord or turn down your amp!
