Fender Deluxe Stratocaster, Mexico 2016, with gig bag £500
Excellent condition with the addition of a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge pickup. Fender say: A tonally versatile guitar with time-honoured Fender style and sound, the Deluxe Strat has a few tricks up its sleeve. Special switching unlocks extra pickup combinations for those moments you find yourself needing a little extra kick to stand out. Three Vintage Noiseless pickups offer all the clarity and articulation you've come to expect from Strat pickups-with no hum. A push/push mini-switch discretely tucked away between the tone controls, yet still easy to reach, activates the bridge pickup in positions four and five on the selector. Use the bridge and neck pickups together or combine all three pickups for flexible tone that can meet the needs of any song. Enjoy smoother travel when using the tremolo bridge, thanks to the modern two-point synchronized design, which includes bent steel saddles for classic aesthetics. A contoured neck heel and 4-bolt asymmetrical neck plate make it easy to comfortably reach the upper registers of the neck. The flatter 12"-radius fingerboard makes it easy to play fast leads and perform deep bends without fretting out. Locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the nut for buzz-free playing and enhanced tuning stability
Fender Deluxe Stratocaster, Mexico 2014 with gig bag £450
Excellent condition. Fender say: The Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with IOS Connectivity lets you expand the sonic possibilities of the world’s greatest electric guitar by plugging it straight into iOS devices such as your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod® or computer with no need for any external devices.
The guitar’s built-in USB audio interface is what does the trick. You can always play it as a great-sounding standard HSS Stratocaster, but the USB output and 1/8” stereo headphone output on the side of the lower bout deliver a whole other world of sonic versatility and creativity. Other features include a maple neck with “modern C” profile and gloss finish, maple or rosewood fingerboard with 9.5” radius and 22 medium jumbo frets, single-coil neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching and three white plastic control knobs (master volume, master tone, headphone volume), three-ply parchment pickguard and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles.
Gibson Les Paul Junior with hard case, USA 2015 £500

Harmony Meteor H70, USA 1964 £600
All original hardware. At some time in it's life it has been 'varnished'. This foolishness knocks a good deal off the price. However, it plays and sounds superb. So, a vintage guitar for new guitar money.. The same model of Meteor as played by Dave Davies (The Kinks) and Keith Richards.
Gretsch Streamliner G2655, China £275
As new. Gretsch say:
The exhilarating G2655 Streamliner Centre Block Jr. Double-Cut is designed for three simple things, high gain-friendly performance, slick, easy playability and spectacular style. A sleek music machine, the G2655 cranks out the hits with updated features while staying true to That Great Gretsch Sound that's been a vital component of rock 'n' roll since its inception. The secret to the Streamliner's sound is twofold, the Broad'Tron BT-2S humbucking pickup and the spruce centre block. Designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output Broad'Tron pickup spawns improved definition with tighter bass response for robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange. A lightweight spruce centre block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance on modern stages. The Streamliner's sonic power is harnessed and shaped by the traditional control layout, neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching. The anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge and synthetic bone nut grant astounding tuning stability and accurate, slip-free intonation. A fast-playing 12"-radius laurel fingerboard with elegant pearloid Big Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound neck with a thin U shaped profile, ideal for chord work or fiery riffing. All the classic eye-catching style you've come to expect from Gretsch is here, vintage-style black control knobs, enlarged F-holes for increased acoustic projection, elegant aged white binding with upgraded purfling, slick-looking nickel hardware, three-ply black pickguard and arched laminated maple construction. Easy to play while rocking out thanks to its smaller body, the G2655 is a phenomenal instrument for the modern musician who wants to control the stage and the audience while standing out from the pack
I say: Phew!
Ibanez Pat Metheny Model PM35-NT with hard case, £450
Excellent condition. Ibanez say: For almost 20 years now Pat Metheny has enjoyed a great relationship with Ibanez, one of the leading guitar manufacturers in the world. Since the
introduction of the Metheny series, Pat has played production models of his PM-100 and PM-120 models in concerts and recordings around the world and has continued to use his trusty PM-20 again after
giving it a brief hiatus for a few years. ("Nothing like a neck that has been broken in with time" says Metheny. "This guitar is like a old baseball glove for me, I have been playing it regularly
since it took center stage on the "Question and Answer" record of 1989"). In the same general zone as the PM-20 comes the new PM-35, a single cutaway, single pickup jazz guitar - but at an
intermediate price point. Pat says "Guitarists from all over the world have been using and enjoying the high end models. I have been amazed at the way low end and mid level guitars have wildly
improved over the past years and I wanted to have a model that would be affordable for younger players who maybe were just getting started in jazz. And so many people have commented on my recent use
of the old PM-20 prototype that I approached Ibanez about the possibility of having something more along those lines available again as a quality "first jazz guitar" level axe. After a few meetings
and back and forth design changes, I am really proud to have this instrument out there and available for everyone".
