Vintage re-issue Mad Cat 

Music Street Guitars are proud to be Sole UK retailers for these stunning Guitars

With the untimely passing of the amazing talent that is Prince, this guitar. We have secured a number of guitars, so if you do not want to miss out, We can and do Ship worldwide, so please contact us for details.

For the first time in over 30 years, the original Mad Cat returns as the Reissue.
An original ‘70s Mad Cat was used as a reference model, and after extensive testing we finally settled to what we believe is a worthy successor, which even surpasses the original in some regards.
Subtle upgrades were performed: Tuners were upgraded to Gotoh SG360 with a higher gear ratio
The original Keiyo pickups have been replicated by Heartbreakers of Belgium who have voiced an old set of pickups so the new set sounds very close to the originals.
The output jack is more sturdy, so no more signal drop-outs
Headstock shape was improved.
All other specifications are equal to the ‘70s Mad Cats, we designed these guitars with the highest respect to the sound and feel of this legendary guitar.
Each one is handbuilt in the original Moridaira factory by Japanese craftsmen, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
