Shergold Guitars have announced they will be unveiling their new ‘Provocateur’ electric guitars at the upcoming Guitar Show on February 23rd – 24th.
The British guitar brand will be offering visitors to the annual event at The New Bingley Hall in Birmingham an exclusive opportunity to play the new Provocateur guitars ahead of their full release in April.
In line with the award-winning Masquerader guitars, the Shergold 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, 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’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 for a wide array of tonal options.
Prices are £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.
All models will be available exclusively from Barnes & Mullins from April 2019.
