Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary, USA 1964 with case, £1500
Finished in 2 tone Smoke Green. I suspect the top of the guitar has been refinished but it is a correct match to the original. Plays well and sounds fine. The case is a Gretsch one but more recent.
Gibson SG Platinum, USA 2004 with case, £725
Gibson Hall of Fame Jimi Hendrix Flying V, USA 1991 with case £2750
Llimited edition Gibson built as a tribute to a Hendrix's legendary custom ordered Flying V. Limited to 400 pieces (this is no.180) these are fairly hard to find. Solid mahogany body, solid mahogany neck with a slim taper and a rosewood fingerboard with arrow iinlays. Dual humbuckers. Vintage Kluson style tuners, a Tuneomatic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece. The finish is black and is set off by gold hardware. Hendrix's signature is embossed on the pickguard. A very unique and rare Flying V!
The original guitar, serial number 849476 was manufactured specially for Jimi in 1969, this guitar probably left the factory in 1970. Jimi was playing this specific V during the Isle of Wight concert. The reissue does not have the vibrato (a wise decision). This guitar has some light marks on the back but no fretwear.
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.

Gibson Les Paul Special, USA 2015 with gig bag £500
Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster, Mexico 2013 with gig bag, £475
Near new condition. Fender say: The pushbutton S-1 switching presents special pickup and wiring modifications for even more tonal versatility. On this instrument, the S-1 switch is built into the master volume control knob and bypasses the preamp and V6 switch for traditional pickup-only sounds.The V6 switch and preamp adds six extra tonal variations that can be accessed almost instantly, ranging from mild to wild. This control is cleverly disguised as a tone control, maintaining the guitar’s authentic Strat style.
Brain May Red Special, 2006 wiith gig bag £500
Fender Telecaster left hand model, USA 2014 with case, £750
Fender Stratocaster, USA with custom birds eye maple neck, with case £800
Left handed guitar with handmade bird's eye maple neck from local luthier Alan Brason. It's a stunning piece of work and much better than the stock Fender neck.
Rickenbacker 330 12 string, Mapleglow, USA with case, as new, £1750
This guitar hasn't been played. Rickenbacker say: Basically the same as Model 330 but with twelve strings. Careful acoustic research has resulted in the full, rich and warm sound of this popular model. Two single coil pickups on a full size body are accented by a traditionally shaped sound hole. The 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard is punctuated by dot inlay fret markers, with full double cutaways permitting access to all the frets.
Fret King Esprit III, £300
Epiphone Les Paul 1960 Tribute Plus, China 2015 with hard case £500
This guitar is in unplayed condition. Gibson said - Tributes feature a solid Mahogany back with a solid, carved hard Maple cap with Flame Maple veneer. The solid Mahogany neck with hand-fitted, glued-in joint extends well into the neck pickup cavity creating maximum neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood.
The new Tribute PLUS features the "1960's" SlimTaper neck with a comfortable "D" shape. This profile is thick enough to provide the stability and tone you want but thin enough to provide you with the comfort and speed you need.
Capturing all the power and nuances of the Tribute PLUS is a pair of authentic Gibson USA '57 Classic humbucking pickups. With its "Patent Applied For" decal on the base plate, the '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus are faithful replicas of the famous Gibson humbuckers that helped define the music of the late 1950s. The '57 Classic gives you a tone that is warm and subtle with full, even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic Gibson humbucker crunch! The '57 Classic Plus is the perfect bridge pickup and mimics humbuckers of that era that received a few extra turns of wire. This treatment gives the pickup slighter higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. In combination, this pair of humbuckers overdrives tube preamps to a smooth level of saturation without becoming overpowering. Both '57's feature Gibson's special Alnico II magnet, vintage enamel coated wire, nickel plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers and vintage-style, braided wiring. Using 4-conductor pickup wiring, Epiphone has added two push/pull tone pots to allow for series/parallel pickup switching.
Epiphone Casino, Korea 1997 with case £500
Made in the Peerless factory. Excellent condition with hardly any playing wear on body or frets. Has original Epiphone case.
Epiphone Les Paul Custom, China 2008 £300
This Epi is in good condtion and benefits from the addition of a pair of Tonerider Alnico IV Classic humbuckers.
Teisco Del Ray, Japan 1964-9, £250
A clean example of this guitar with all original parts except for the metal badge logo which, I suspect , is a modern repro. It is a Teisco made guitar but somewhat unusual to have pointed rather than rounded horns on the cutaways.
Layke with gig bag £200
Peavey EVH Wolfgang Special, c.2002 £350
Vester, Korea 1990's with hard case £150
Washburn RR10V, Japan c.1986 with case, £300
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.
Gretsch Travelling Wilburys TW-300, Korea c.1989 £300
These guitars where built from 1988-1992. This rare 'signature' guitar from arguably the best supergroup ever is in great shape with very little playing wear. The Wilburys were: Jeff Lynne, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan. The design is pretty much the one of a 1950's Danelectro U-2 with the addition of a tremolo and a humbucker pickup. The body is hollow like the old Danos. It does play very well with low action and has a great sound.
