Hi,

This beauty is for sale locally...

The sticker and neck says ME, but the table color is sort of slate grey, not the usual ruby red and it's missing the bottom epaulets...

Did these guitars had some variations over the years?

This one is # 21430 so around 2005...

Thanks for your inputs...

Patrick

I believe they made a few different versions over the years,the most common one is the ruby red SMT but they did other colors,some with single epis and I think there was a newer one with the cross weave carbon fiber top.
here's a link to a vid about a minute in you see Melissa with a single epi 12 string

Hi James,

£1800.00, a tad much for me...

By the way, found its name, it's an ME "II" ie the 2nd one...

The white ones are 6 strings only?

Cheers, Patrick

Hi Patrick,
Thanks for the reply.
I'ts beyond my pay scale as well.
Shipping from the US, import duty, vat, all make prices prohibitive in the UK. The Americans are very fortunate regarding this.
Cheers James.

I’ve got one just like it.
Adamas ME II, bass-side epaulet only.
Mid-depth bowl.
My serial # dates it to around 2007.
They are nice guitars.

Someone mentioned colors? AFAIK, the “white” ones were 6-strings and the charcoal/black ones were 12-strings.
(I’ve never seen an ME II 12-string in any other color than the one pictured in your photo, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they weren’t made in any other colors.)

If I calculated the exchange rate properly, that one would be about U.S. $2,300. Imo, that would be a fair price for one in excellent shape, but you could probably find a better price if you are patient and keep an eye out for a lower-priced one. They’re not particularly rare, (again AFAIK.) I guess what you’re willing to pay might depend on how valuable you consider the autograph. (The labels inside the bowl were all individually autographed by Melissa Etheridge.)

Hi Standing,

Thanks for the details...

What annoys me with the SMT compared to the textured is how to keep them clean and shinny...

How do you avoid the sort of glazed aspect of the SMT, what's the trick???

It's like the color is always hidden underneath apart from a certain angle...

I sort of keep an eye on Adamas prices in GB, I haven't seen yet an ME 12 strings fetch or sell over £1500.00 over here...

Hence my comment!!!

Patrick

Charcoal-Gray was the latest issue 1598 ME-II-12 series, with OP-Pro I throught.

As per white - Mothership created at least two Pearl-white ME-II-12

(actually looks like 12-string version of W597-MEII
