Hi Lal As an interduction offer to you only it would be £150.00 taking into acount the origanal art work on it,plus a verry different way of building with a fantasic acustic sound.The one in the picture is mine and that will never leave my hands.Hope this suits you but apart from a very good guitar plus the origanal art work plus it really sounds fantastic on the amp Hope this suits you ,awaiting your reply Mal

Lal, that's a very nice compliment; I'm glad you like the sound of your Saner git with my Flatpup on it. Yes, it's different, outside the box in the best sense of the word ;-)
