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 Classic 50's Series Telecaster, Mexico 2009. £400
Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus, China with new gig bag £320
Good condition, a little fret wear but otherwise fine. Fender say - The Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus is something of a Frankenstein's monster featuring a HSS configuration with a bridge humbucker single coil middle pickup taken from a Strat but with the classic 'lipstick' Telecaster neck pickup. 5-way Strat style switching and a coil tap mini switch for the humbucker allows huge tonal flexibility not normally possible on a Telecaster which means you can use the Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus as your main guitar to cover loads of different sounds. The pine tonewood body is lightweight and confers a balanced tone similar to spruce (acoustically) which is transferred beautifully to the special Modern Player pickups. The maple neck has a fingerboard radius of 9.5" which is typical for modern Fender guitars and a good middle ground for a range of playing styles.
Italia Fiorano, £350
Superb condition. No longer in production. Italia said: The Italia Fiorano continues Trev Wilkinson's love affair with the humble P90 pickup, featuring a pair of Wilkinson W90 Dogears. Combining these with hollow mahogany body construction and a spruce top gives the Fiorano a great, rich tone that's full of sustain and sophistication and is also stunningly versatile. The set neck is maple, with a rosewood fingerboard of 22 frets, and there's lashings of chrome hardware to perfectly set off the Tobacco Sunburst finish. If early rock and roll, rock, pop, indie or jazz is your thing, you'll love the Fiorano!
Brain May Red Special, 2006 wiith gig bag £500
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.

Michael Kelly Patriot Custom, Korea £300
Excellent condition. Kelly says: The Michael Kelly Patriot Custom features an extra deeply carved maple top on a hand selected mahogany body. The set-in neck is tightly fitted to assure maximum sustain and performance. The Rockfield SWC Pickups Pickups give the Custom a high output edge, while retaining a classic humbucker tone. To give you the full impact of these special pickups we have direct mounted the pickups and include a coil tap for each pickup. The coil taps allow you to switch each pickup from a full humbucker tone, to a single coil tone with a simple push-pull pot. An ebony fingerboard, recessed control knobs, Grover tuners, real abalone block inlays, TonePros locking bridge and an amazing flame maple top round out a stunning feature set.
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.
Peavey EVH Wolfgang Special, c.2002 £350
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.
