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.

Fender Stratocaster, Mexico 2004. £350
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!

The 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard is punctuated by dot inlay fret markers, with full double cutaways permitting access to all the frets.

Fender Squire Hello Kitty, Indonesia 2006 £150
ibanez SA Series, Korea £120
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.

It does play very well with low action and has a great sound.
