1986 Fylde Othello 12 fret – £1799
NEW ARRIVAL Not only is the Othello one of Fylde’s the rarest models as it’s now discontinued, this particular example is a one off as it has a 12 fret neck join. Tonally it’s fantastic, the Mahogany back and sides provide a rich, woody tone, while the Cedar top adds smoothness, and the fact that the body meets the neck at the 12th fret adds a big airy bass response not found in 14-fret dreadnoughts. It’s capable of both bright and punchy tones, yet quite complex and able to handle the most subtle of playing styles. The guitar is in good condition, with a few light nicks and dings on the top, and some lacquer checking on the back. It comes in a non original hard case.
