Make: Zerberus Guitars
Model: Ulthane Lefty
Price: € 4046.00
What you see here is an Ulthane (the Black hammer) lefty. Painted by
hand with a brush. The top is German flamed Ash from my area. I made the
body of walnut that was seasoned for more than 27 Years in the attic of
a barn near where I live. I also stored it for 15 more
Years in my woodshop so it is seasoned for 42 Years. The Pickups are a
set handmade by Bill (RIP) and Becky Lawrence called Wilde pickups L500
and L500XL. The pickups are passive and the battery only is for the
illuminated side dots.This is a hand crafted masterpiece.I have no CNC machine odes my job. Even the clear coat is applied by hand with a brush.
Yeah...sure.....I also have a box full of good spray guns, but meanwhile I love to apply the clear coat by hand.
Keeps me in touch with the surface all the time and it is challenging and thrilling to do that job with brushes.
Moreover it gives me total control over the clear coat and enables me to apply very thin layers. The neck is made of two stripes of Purple-Heart (Amarant lumber) and 3 stripes of German Oak. The fretboard is made of flamed maple. Ihave installed a mixed fret system with 2.8mm frets from 1 to 12 and 2.3mm frets from 13 to 24 offering a little bit more space between the higher frets. The Wilde pickups can be splitted by push-pull-potentiometers. So you get a lot of warm and fat humbucker sounds as well as a lot of crunchy percusive single-coil sounds. That makes this guitar very versatile. The Ulthane comes inside a good hard case and including certificate. Hey! It is serial number #001L !!! If you ever wanted to own a guitar that was built by one luthier´s hands, painted by hand and is absolutely unique - this is your chance.
My name is Frank Scheucher.
In my custom shop in Germany I am building unique and individual electric guitars.
My inspiration is to break new ground by using new materials and designing guitars that are not just copies of already existing, successful models.
I always wanted my guitars to have their own character to people say: “Hey, this looks like a Zerberus” as soon as they see one of my guitars.
I very much respect the Vintage style guitars but I think that there must be room for innovation instead of imitation.
There are a lot of really talented and amazing luthiers out there whom I very much respect, but I always wanted to get off the beaten tracks.
My motto is 6 simple words: Be a voice – not an echo.
I am a one-man-workshop, and that means:
I don´t have millions of Dollars that I can use to push my guitars in the media.
I can´t afford to spend thousands $$ to hire famous guitar players just to play my guitars.
I don´t have the funds to promote my guitars with gigantic booths at each and every exhibition around the globe or on TV shows.
Most of my guitars sell thru word of mouth recommendations and that requires 100% satisfied and happy customers.
I am very proud of my guitars and for me it is very important to have happy and satisfied customers.
I take personal responsibility for the customer satisfaction and I am your contact for all concerns. Regarding shipment: I have posted a price of $100 shipment in the EU but I suggest to contact me first so I can see if I can give a better quote. There simply is no thing like an all-EU-Price when shipping and once I know the destination I can calculate more accurate. Same for the USA and everywhere else. Better talk to me and let me calculate the exact shipping cost. I usually ship by DHL as a fully insured parcel (I never ship without insurance). Untill Today they never lost or damaged a guitar, but you never know. Better play safe.If you have any questions please feel free to ask right away.

+ - Return Policy Return is accepted. If you don´t like one of my guitars for any reason you can return it and get your money back. You have two weeks to decide if you like the instrument or not. During that time - please handle the guitar carefully. You only have to pay for the shipping cost back to my address.
+ - Shipping Policy Shipping with full insurance by DHL or UPS. I always put great attention to packing. All my guitars ship inside hard case - bubble wrap around, and packed into super stable overseas cardboard box. It does not make sense to ship high end guitars inside flimsy packings. IMPORTANT !!! For shipping rated please contact me first and I will check what shipment will be best.
