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.

Super condition. Original Peerles branded case included. 3 volume controls and one tone.
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.
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.

Ibanez CLM Cameron Liddell Signature model, China 2013, £225
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.
