Francis Rossi ‘Live Aid’ Configuration Replica
s/n RR160003 NOW SOLD
No.3 guitar is now complete and has been fitted with a set of nickel-wound Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings These strings are the same gauge as Francis uses (9–42) and suit the overall look and feel of the guitar.
It has been worth taking the time to apply all of the correct wear patterns, ageing and relic’ing to achieve a really authentic-looking Francis Rossi replica guitar. Read how this guitar was built here.

I am based in the U.K. How do I go about buying one of your guitars as I am very interested.
Hi Mike, I’m hoping to put No. 3 up for sale this weekend (or soon after). It will either be listed as a Buy it now only item on Ebay or it will be a direct sale via the blog. The price will be £700. + postage.
Thanks for your interest.
£700? That’s cheap for the amount of work. I thought £1000+ minimum. 🙂
Hi there, is it possible to order one of these ladies with a original Fender neck including headstock logo?Cheers.
Hi Uwe, both completed guitars are now sold I’m afraid. The necks are always salvaged parts and I always brand them as RR guitars. Any news on new builds will be posted on this blog.
Many thanks for your interest.
Would love to have one of these, when do you think you will be making up another one.
Not certain when the next build will start, but it will definitely be posted on this blog.
Are you able to put together a kit with all the parts. Really keen to get my hands on one of these beauty’s .
Sorry, no I don’t produce anything like that and some of the parts are very hard to come by, so it takes quite a while to get everything together. I may start a new build later this year which might be a Rick Parfitt model this time. Best to check the blog for updates.
Thanks for looking.
