Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite , USA (2013) in Ebony with case £2000
Near new condition. One of only 250 made in 2013. Gibson said - The Les Paul Custom has always been a supremely elegant instrument but many have come off the line over the years considerably heavier than the typical Les Paul Standard. The Les Paul Custom Lite is made with a considerably thinner body and traditional weight relief, it lightens the load for a superbly playable Custom that still packs all the elegant looks and dual-humbucker tone that has made this Les Paul legendary. The Les Paul Custom Lite features time-tested ingredients, including the legendary tonewood pairing of a carved maple top and genuine mahogany body, the latter treated with Gibson’s traditional weight relief to reduce the load and enhance resonance. The quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved to a rounded ’50s profile and topped with a Grade-A, rosewood fingerboard with single-ply binding and classic acrylic block inlays. The body and headstock are trimmed in multi-ply binding, and the headstock carries an Acrylic Gibson logo and traditional acrylic split-diamond inlay. Dressed entirely in high-gloss Ebony Black and in genuine nitrocellulose lacquer. Two of Gibson’s most popular humbucking pickups from the Modern Classics series offer all the tone that made the Les Paul legendary in the first place, plus added single-coil sounds thanks to the coil-splitting mini-toggle switch added in place of the second tone control. The 490R in the neck position is made with a genuine Alnico II magnet and wound with 42 AWG wire in the image of the original PAF humbuckers, for plenty of depth and warmth with impressive articulation. The 498T in the bridge position has an Alnico V magnet and extra turns of coil wire for added punch and growl. A traditional Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece enhance the sustain that has long made the Les Paul legendary, and a set of Grover™ keystone tuners—all in gold, as are the pickup covers and strap buttons—ensure a lifetime of smooth tunings. Check out the Les Paul Custom Lite today, from Gibson USA, and grab a more comfortable hunk of that classic elegance.

Excellent condition for it's age. Has original Gibson cardboard case which has seen better days and new wooden case.
Gretsch 6118t-120 - 120th Anniversary. USA 2003 with case £1500
Good condition with some wear on frets and bridge. Gretsch Pages say - In 2003 Fender Musical Instruments Corp. — being in control of Gretsch’s manufacturing and distribution since the previous year — deciding to celebrate the company’s 120th anniversary with a new Anniversary model. The guitar that came out of the Terada factory that year was one of the first new models made under FMIC control. It had the traditional features of an anniversary: a 16-inch laminated maple body, unbound f-holes with squared points, a three-piece unbound maple neck, a 24.6" scale with ebony fretboard and 21 frets, and an unbound headstock with black plastic overlay and the traditional Anniversary chrome metal plate, adorned with a diamond engraving and the text "Anniversary 1883 - 2003". The body was one of the first to have the correct vintage outline (compared to the pre-FMIC ones), the wood laminate was thinner and bracing was by classic parallel braces running under the top with a soundpost between the top and back. Unlike previous Anniversary models, the 120 was obviously aimed at the higher end of the Gretch line-up. From its retro-Gretsch Bamboo Yellow/Copper Mist color scheme to its features, the 120 was special. Some of the features setting it apart from lesser Anniversaries were a stock B6 Bigsby, TV Jones' Classic Filtertron pickups (made by hand and only to be found on Brian Setzer’s signature model until then) rocking bar bridge, Grover Sta Tite open back tuning machines and aged binding.
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.
Phantom Guitarworks 12 string (left hand), USA with hard case £700
A custom order, this is a very rare guitar as Phantom don't list a left handed version of this on their website. In excellent condition with some lower fret wear.
Line 6 Variax 700 dual guitar package, Japan/Korea £450
What we have here is a 2 guitar package (I will not split them). A Line 6 Variax 700 electric guitar and a Line 6 Variax 700 acoustic guitar. Included are 2 complete sets of the connecting boxes and cables together with one computer inteface box and both manuals. You can download the software to adjust instrument voicings and tunings. The electric also comes with the Line 6 gigbag. Both guitars are in excellent condition. But......the acoustic has a crack in the bridge across the bridge pin holes (see pic). The guitar functions as it should and I don't forsee any problems but you are therefore getting the acoustic guitar free as the electric alone normally sells for around £500. I have used this setup myself and can confirm that both guitars play well and link to the software correctly.
Epiphone Wilshire Pro, Custom Shop Limited Edition, China £325
Excellent condition. Epi say - The Epiphone Wilshire Pro electric guitar has a double-cutaway mahogany body and set mahogany neck, which joins the body at the 22nd fret, giving you the ultimate in upper-fret access. The Wilshire Pro is lightweight and comfortable, with excellent resonance and natural acoustic tone'even unplugged! Featuring Epiphone's LockTone Tune-O-Matic/stopbar combination, the transfer of string vibration is improved even more, giving this it excellent sustain and clarity.
The neck pickup is Epiphone's Alnico Classic. It provides warm and subtle tone with a full, even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch. An Alnico Classic Plus is in the bridge, and is over wound for a slightly higher output'without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. Both feature Alnico II magnets, enamel wire, and are double vacuum waxed. Each volume control on the Epiphone guitar is a push/pull potentiometer that allows you to coil-split each pickup separately for a more twangy single-coil sound, as well as many other tonal combinations.
The Epiphone Wilshire Pro electric guitar features their own "batwing" headstock. A classic design that improves tuning ease and accuracy by offering a straight string-pull design, the headstock is adorned like the original with the vintage Epiphone logo in gold. Other features include a 1960's SlimTaper neck profile with Rosewood fingerboard, premium 14:1 die-cast tuners, and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.

Good condition with some marks to the body but very little fret wear. Rare in red apparently.

Excellent 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.
Fender Squier Contemporary Active Jazzmaster HH ST Graphite Metallic, China £250
Barely used condition. Fender say: A modern take on an old classic, the Contemporary Series Jazzmaster has a host of upgrades and player-centric changes. The 9V Active Circuit with Squier's SQR Ceramic Humbuckers gives plenty of bite and heft in terms of output and are super quiet too. The fully adjustable bridge with stopbar tailpiece makes for a lot more attack and sustain than a conventional Jazzmaster setup, making bending a whole lot easier. Bends are also aided by the Modern "C" shaped neck and a 12" Radius Indian Laurel Fretboard topped off with 21 Tall & Narrow (6105 style) Frets.The blackout Graphite Metallic finish boasts a matching headstock, black hardware and black pickguard. Simplified circuitry with a 3-way toggle for neck, bridge or both pickups, master volume and tone.
Shergold Meteor Deluxe, England 1976 £650
Usual lacquering cracking on body. Original hardware. Plays and sounds fine.
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 '60's Reissue, Japan 1994 £650
Excellent condition. 'Made in Japan' on heel. Have a look here for info on the Slver Series guitars.
Yamaha AES1500, Japan 1988 with case, £1100
Good condition with very little fret wear. Coil taps on tone pots.
Fender 50s Classic Player Stratocaster 60th Anniversary, Mexico (2014) with Tweed case. £750
As new condition with all case candy. A rare guiter.

Other premium features include an alder body; maple neck with "soft V" profile, gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment; maple fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 21 medium jumbo frets; three American Vintage Strat single-coil pickups with five-way switching; aged white control knobs; two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style stamped steel saddles; and vintage-style locking tuners.

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.
