The Shergold SM01SD Masquerader 1 has its solid mahogany body loaded with a USA-made Seymour Duncan SP90 and TB4 Humbucker pickup configuration for a full-bodied, resonant and addictively powerful tone.
The Thru-Gloss colour options offer a glimpse into the Masquerader’s tonal core with the grain of the mahogany body visible through the immaculate high-gloss sheen finish. The Solid Battleship Grey colouring with a high-gloss finish perfectly complements the tough and road-ready character of a Shergold guitar.
Re-designed for the 21st Century in the United Kingdom by British guitar luthier Patrick James Eggle, the Shergold Masquerader captures the very essence of British Rock ‘n’ Roll. This modern reinvention of the iconic British guitar makes a polite nod to its 1970s heritage, then quickly heads off in its own new direction.

"Attracted by the sound, looks, weight (under 7 pounds) and the specifications for the money. A lot of bang for your bucks."
"Great Sound and Feel"
"Exactly what I was looking for the right guitar at the right price & the right sound quality"
"good value but needs a semi-hollow and a trem option"
"Great innovative design, very comfortable to play, can play this 3 hours straight no problem. Great quality finish & attention to detail, the neck is brilliant, Sounds great with the SD pickups, clear rich tones, plenty of twang with coil split. There's nothing I would change or upgrade on it. The only negative point I'd say is the volume pot is stiffer to turn than the tone pot (which has coil split pull-push switch), but the electronics work fine so no big deal I've been practising twice as much since getting the masquerader & it's easy for an hour or two to go by before you know it!
