Suhr Modern Andy Wood Signature, USA 2012 with case £2250
Superb guitar, near new condition. G&G Custom Hard Case. Suhr said: Inferno Burst is the perfect finish for a guitar this hot. Guitar virtuoso Andy Wood's Signature Suhr
Modern is a real players guitar. It offers a selection of very balanced and resonant tone woods with a mahogany body and neck and a Pau Ferro fingerboard. The DSV/DSH+ pickups are warm and pleasing
to the ears without being muddy or undefined. They offer a tight low end with amazing clarity along with a solid mid-range that can cut through any mix with ease. The highs are clear and present
without being harsh even when the tone knob is cranked. Mahogany Body w/ Inferno Burst Flame Maple Top. Mahogany Neck and Pau Ferro Fingerboard w/ 16" Radius. Modern Elliptical Neck

Guild S-50, USA 1972 with case £750
Rare guitar, all original, in good condition. Plug it in, play a chord, start a band etc etc. An SG Junior's slightly less attractive room mate.
Fender Squire Bullet, Japan 1985 £400
Good condition with some marks to the body but very little fret wear. Rare in red apparently.
Antoria 2355, Japan 1978 with hard case, £975
For it's age, this guitar is in super condition. Modern, good quality case included. The Antoria guitars of this period are rebranded Ibanez guitars. The body of the Antoria No. 2355 is an Arched spruce top with selected birch back and rims. The neck is hard laminated maple and is a set in neck.

Shergold Custom 6/12, c.1980 England, with hard case, £975
A rare find, these twins were made in the 70's and early 80's in England. Thanks to the www.shergold.co.uk site it appears that this one dates from around 1980. Apart from the missing bridge covers it is all original. When it arrived the selector switch legends were taped over. Having removed the tape you can see guitar/bass. Looks like they had run out of 6/12 plates and just used what was around. So, the guitar setting is the 12 and the bass setting is the 6. Confusing..... As with almost all Shergolds the paint finish has cracked over the years. Waiting for a Barclay James Harvest revival.
Shergold Meteor Deluxe, England 1976 £650
Usual lacquering cracking on body. Origiinal hardware. Plays and sounds fine.
Fender Stratocaster American Pro HSS Shawbucker, USA 2016 with case £950
Some marks on the back but otherwise good. Fender say: The fat-sounding ShawBucker humbucking bridge pickup is joined by tone wizard Tim Shaw’s latest vintage-informed design—the V-Mod single-coil pickups. These brand-new pickups are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory. The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.
Fender Telecaster, USA 1989 with hard case £950
This is one of those oddball Fender’s that most people have never heard of. Fender has a reputation for doing some weird serial number stuff as they progressed, and this is indeed one of them. From Fender’s website. A limited number of these “I” series guitars were made in 1989 and 1990. They were made for the export market and have “Made in USA” stamped on the neck heel.” Good condition apart from a couple of dings on the edge.
Fender Stratocaster 50's reissue, Mexico 2018, with Hiscox case £450
As new condition.
Fender Stratocaster, USA 2005 with case, £900
Excellent condition with barely any wear. Case with all original docs.
Fender Stratocaster, USA 1978 with case £1850
This is a one owner guitar which has seen very light use. Minimal fret wear on some lower frets. Lovely, dark rosewood board. One small ding on the heel but otherwise clean.
Fender Telecaster, USA 2012 with hard case £900
Great condition apart from a small mark on the upper bout. .
Ibanez Destroyer Mini, Korea £140
Excellent condition & a nice player.
Fender Tribute Series Hendrix Stratocaster, USA 1997 (see below) with hard case. £700
A bit of a mystery this one. It's pretending to be a rare Tribute series model from 1997 but the USA pots are dated 2014. Now, some Mexican Strats have USA pots so I'm not convinced that this isn't just a left handed Mexican body/pickup assembly. The strap button on the short horn had been put in not quite straight, doubt it would have come out of the Fender factory like that. The neck plate isn't correct either - the proper one is engraved this one is etched. The neck is correct with the reverse decal (so if you stand in front of a mirror it looks like Hendrix's guitar!) and stamps on neck. Someone has removed the lacquer on the fingerboard. So, it is what it is and about £1500 less than if it was kosher. That's all very well, I hear you say, but what does it sound like? It's uncanny, it sounds just like Mr Hendrix, you'll be at Woodstock playing 'The Star Spangled Banner' before you can say purple haze (terms and conditions apply).
Epiphone Sheraton, Korea 1989 with hard case £400
Good condition. These Korean made Epiphones are always good value.
Yamaha AES1500, Japan 1988 with case, £1100
Good condition with very little fret wear. Coil taps on tone pots.
Charvel Model 2, Japan 1987 £350
Ibanez CLM Cameron Liddell Signature model, China 2013, £285
Good condiition. Ibanez say: The Ibanez CLM Cameron Liddell Signature Electric Guitar is crafted in strict accordance to Cameron Liddell's specifications and the highest standards of
luthiery. It's built with a contoured mahogany body with a CLM mahogany set-in neck that's super comfortable with its rosewood fingerboard, 24 medium-jumbo frets and 12" radius. A single,
well-positioned humbucker wired to a Master Volume is all Cameron needs to get his expressive sound. Cosmo black hardware and an ART-1 bridge keep things in tune and dressed for the stage.
I say, a nice simple guitar that plays and sounds very well.
Ibanez JS100 Joe Satriani model, Korea 1999, £400
Epiphone Emperor, Korea 1989 with hard case, £400
Great condition. This Emperor model was the forerunner of the later Joe Pass Emperor
Paul Reed Smith S2, USA 2016 with PRS gig bag £700
Some wear on the body but the neck is fine and it sounds great.
CSL Twin Neck with hard case, Japan mid 1970's, £650
Good, condition. CSL guitars were rebranded Ibanez models made for Charles Summerfield Ltd of Gateshead, England. From the era of Prog when every self respecting band had a twin neck guitar.
Vintage V6JMH ReIssued Electric Guitar ~ Olympia White 'Fillmore', £195
Excellent condition. Vintage say: A left hand neck and inverted Wilkinson Alnico V WVS pickups give the guitar both a characteristic appearance and a distinctive tonal
combination, with more bass in the bridge pickup and a greater treble attack in the neck pickup compared to a standard pickup configuration. The Wilkinson vibrato bridge, meanwhile, features an
innovative stagger-drilled block which radically improves the guitar's intonation, whilst maintaining incredible return-to-pitch accuracy.
Arnold Hoyer, Germany 1950's, £350
Pretty good condtion for it's age. Has had a pickup fitted at some pont and it sounds fine or that 'old timey' sound. The roller bridge is unlike any I've seen, slide the rollers back and forth to adjust intonation. A vintage guitar for less money than a Chinese replica.
Washburn X-30, £150
Good condition. Washburn say: Washburn`s X series offers a range of solid and double-cut electric guitars with hard rock, metal and shred styles being under the spotlight. X 30 is an intermediate model from this series and it features a carved top body made entirely of alder. X 30 comes with glossy finish and chrome-plated hardware. Standard features of X series include 25-1/2" scale, Grover tuners and Buzz Feiten tuning system. One-piece bridge section includes a tune-o-matic bridge with string-through-body construction. In it`s front, Washburn installs a pair of open-coil humbuckers. Controls unit contains master volume, master tone and a thee-position blade switch. Maple neck is bolted to the body and it`s topped with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard.
Grimshaw GS30, England 1960's £350
Good condition but has finish cracks on the back. The GS30 was introduced in the eary 1960's and over 400 were made in the following decade. Richard Thompson (Fairport Convention) & Francis Rossi (Status Quo) both used one of these Grimshaw's in 1968. If only I'd had Richard's talent and Quo's dress sense - I could have been a contender........
Italia Maranello with hard case, Korea c.2010 £450
Chatswoth Guitar 'The Phoenix', UK 1995 £325
Chatsworth Guitars were based in Harrogate, Yorkshire. Not a lot of info is available but it appears that the company ceased trading around 2001. Dated on body and neck. Schaller bridge, Korean humbucker. A well made guitar but, as always, because it's an unknown maker not a big price tag.
Harmony H900AB, Korea? 1980's £125
Probably Korean but could be Japanese. Made from a 1 inch thick slab of plywood - it's a heavy beast. Haven't seen one of these since the '80's (maybe a good thing really). Oh, and it's an ugly fella. But apart from that.....
Kawai Aquarius AQ-305, Japan 1980's £195
A lovely example of a rare guitar from the early 1980's. Usual Japanese quality. Cool push button coil tap switch. Hardly any fret wear and the body is in great condition save for a small ding on the back of the upper bout.
Westone Spectrum II, Japan 1984 £150
Solid Alder body, one piece Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard, graphite nut, 25.5 inch scale 22 frets. 2 Hammer I humbuckers, standard trem, Single volume and 2 tone controls - the tone controls are push-pull switches for coil tap and phase adjust
Fender Squire, Korea c.1990 £100
As regular visitors to the shop will know, I always have lots of cheapies (£100 or less) in stock which I normally don't put on the website. This one's been in the stockroom for months - it needed work. But now it's done I thought I'd give it some light. Best quality plywood for the body, and yet, and yet, it plays great and sounds great. Roll the tone off for a lovely blues tone. OK, so I've pretty much locked the trem down as it's not wonderful. So it's not always about the hand dried swamp ashy aldery alnico bumblebee etc etc malarky.
