Shergold Guitars has unveiled the Tango Fandango Masquerader, a special edition of its popular SM01-SD double-cut model. This orange guitar is the second member of Shergold’s one-off limited-edition series, which kicked off in 2018 with the SM03-SD Black Sparkle model.

The guitar stands out from the pack with its decadent high-gloss orange finish. This limited-edition colour, according to Shergold, is inspired by the Masquerader models of the 80s and 90s that had orange and black finishes.

Otherwise, it has the same Patrick James Eggle-designed feature set as other SM01-SD models. It features three solid tonewoods: a mahogany body, rosewood neck as well as a 12-inch-radius rosewood fingerboard. Additionally, the fretboard is adorned with elegant aluminium-lined inlays.

And as for tone, the Tango Fandango relies on a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers: SP90 (neck) and TB4 (bridge). Both pups are wired to master volume and tone controls – the latter can be coil-split via a push/pull knob – along with a three-way pickup selector.
