Egypt Karnak Luxor from 1986

This guitar does have a very 80s vibe to it - perhaps it's the metallic lilac finish. It wouldn't have looked out of place in any of the hair metal bands of that era. Oddly, it doesn't have a locking trem - just a regular one, but if you're like me that will be something in the guitar's favour.

Egypt Guitars were built in Glasgow, Scotland, and the business is still going although these days mainly functions as a guitar repair shop. If you check theie website you'll see an Egypt Pharoah Isis from 1985 that shares the same body shape as the guitar pictured above, only in mirror image. (Hey, Gibson don't hold the monopoly on "reverse" body styles).

Anyway, the auction for the Karnak Luxor is finishing in a little over 4 hours as I type this, so why not bid? You could snap up what looks like a very nice guitar (although possibly playing in a 80s cover band might be a pre-requisite!).

Additional: It didn't sell and has been re-listed here.
