Gretsch 6122-JR Country Classsic Junior, Japan 1999 with case £1500

This is the smaller sister of the Country Gent played by George Harrison. 
The JR sized Gretsches are extremely comfortable guitars, giving you the best of both worlds - full size sound in a slightly smaller body making for easy playability.
They were introduced around 1998 and offered it until 2005. It features a laminated press-arched maple top and back, three-ply laminated maple sides, and a set two-piece rock maple neck with 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Both top and back are multi-bound, the fingerboard single-bound. Neoclassical thumbnail inlays are on the bass side of the fingerboard. Gold-plated hardware includes Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, tune-o-matic bridge with ebony base, Gretsch machines, "G"-arrow control knobs, and knurled strap buttons. Dual FilterTron pickups provide that great Gretsch sound, and a raised gold pickguard and black-faced headstock with logo inlay complete the look. This model was relatively rare back when it was offered and it is even more rare now that it is out of production.  Some minor plating wear but otherwise superb condition.

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!

Gibson Hendrix 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.

Gibson Midtown Custom, USA 2014  with case   £895

This guitar is in near new condition.  No playing wear. This is what Gibson say about it: Gibson USA's Midtown Custom takes all of the legendary ES properties a step further, maximizing each design goal, while adding a rich, deep resonance all its own. With a trimmed-down and more player-friendly body size that still emulates the lines of the ES models, but built with the chambered solid-wood construction (rather than a laminated top and back with solid center block), the Midtown Custom truly embodies the optimum marriage of solidbody and archtop.

The Midtown Custom starts with premium tonewoods, using Grade-A timbers beneath the three translucent finish options. A solid mahogany body is strategically chambered for optimum resonance and capped with a solid maple top with traditional f-holes, which is finished in your choice of high-gloss Heritage Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst, Antique Natural or Ebony Black. Its solid mahogany neck is carved to a fast, comfortable '60s-style profile that measures .800" at the 1st fret and .875" at the 12th. The neck is topped with a smooth, hard fingerboard crafted from Richlite®, a fabricated material composed of cellulose fiber and phenolic resin, which offers the constructional and resonant properties of fine hardwood, but with improved durability, for a superb playing feel. Tidy white binding accentuates the fingerboard, while multi-ply binding graces the body and headstock. The rich, dark fingerboard is enhanced with acrylic block inlays plus split-diamond inlays dress the headstock in the classic style of upmarket Gibson models.

Plugged in, this elegant hotrod runs the gamut of legendary Les Paul-to-ES tones, thanks to a pair of BurstBucker pickups, two of Gibson's finest vintage-PAF-style humbuckers, and classic four-knob wiring with three-way toggle selector. A BurstBucker 1 in the neck position yields warm, throaty blues and jazz tones with plenty of clarity, while a slightly hotter BurstBucker 2 in the bridge provides more growl and bite for anything from hot country to rock 'n' roll, while together the pair provides round, slinky, funky rhythm tones. These great humbuckers from Gibson USA are made with genuine unpolished Alnico II magnets and wound with 42 AWG wire, just like the legendary PAFs of the late '50s and early '60s. In the hardware department, the Midtown Custom carries the classic pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and a set of premium Grover kidney button tuners up top.

Gibson SG Special
Here's an amazing limited edition Gibson built as a tribute to a Hendrix's legendary custom ordered Flying V. Limited to 400 pieces, these are fairly hard to find. Solid mahogany body for excellent sustain. Solid mahogany neck with a slim taper and a rosewood fingerboard with arrow inlays. Dual patent number stamped humbuckers dish out big tone. Vintage Kluson style tuners, a Tuneomatic bridge, and Stopbar tailpiece keep it rock solid. 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! - See more at: https://www.gbase.com/gear/gibson-jimi-hendrix-hall-of-fame-1994-black#sthash.cJTP9ezq.dpuf

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.

Hagstrom F-200 (Hagstrom II), Sweden c. mid 1960's with Hiscox case, £475

A fairly rare guitar in the UK, this Hagstrom is in pretty good order.  A few minor dinks on the body but the frets are good and the neck is super thin and very playable, The trem arm is a make-do replacement but it works.

Danelectro Hodad, Korea c.2000 with gig bag  £400

Really good condition with no fret wear.  It's a deep metallic purple but the picture looks black.

Thanks to chasingguitars.com for the following info.  When Danelectro started building instruments again in 1998 (Danelectro plant was closed in 1969) they mainly revived the original Nat Daniel designs from the 50s and 60s.In 1999 the Hodad guitar was the first modern Danelectro not to revisit the past original Nat Daniel designs.The Hodad was a new Danelectro model similar to a Mosrite. It has a retro “surf guitar” look and sported a Dano branded Bigsby tail piece. Production for these was done in Korea. Made in limited numbers from 1999 to 2001 they were originally sold as “The Ultimate Surf Guitar.”
The ones sporting the “D” branded Bigsby are more rare. It has a 21 fret rosewood neck & 25-inch Dano scale with a satin feel on back. The tuners are Gotoh with the truss-rod adjuster located on the body end. The adjustable bridge also has rollers. This helps with smooth operation of the Bigsby tailpiece. The semi-hollow masonite body sports four lipstick-cased single coils wired like two humbuckers.  Pickup selection via a 3-way switch. There are volume and tone controls for each set of pickups. The tone controls also have pull/push switches; one for single-coil operation, the other puts the pickups out of phase when both are selected.

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.

In very nice condition body and neck wise, plays well and has a big sound.   Bad marks for addition of USA Dimarzio pickup in the middle position and tunamatic bridge.  So, cheaper that it would be.

Peavey T60, USA 1980 £350

Made in the U.S. between 1976 and 1987, the Peavey T-60 was perhaps Peavey's most prominent solidbody guitar made during that era, and the first guitar the brand ever produced. Many believe the T-60 has been grievously overlooked when examining historically great guitars. Though it is heavy, like many Peavey products from this time period, players have found that the tones of these guitars are so unique that it more than makes up for the instrument's mass.  It features a variable coil tap on the tone controls, full treble gives single coil, below 7 it's humbucker twin coil.  Very playable. This one has lost it's plastic hard case over the years.

Fender Squire Bullet bass, Japan 1994 £125

This bass has seen a hard life body wise.   Looks like it's been in a fire or someone has had a go with a blow torch!  A large area has been hacked away on the upper bout in a brutal attempt at ageing.  The scratchplate has scorch marks which I cannot remove.  Nevertheless, the neck has hardly any fretwear and the bass sounds good and plays easy.  I've cleaned it up as well as possible and fitted new strings.  Not a looker  but keenly priced.

Taylor 314CE, USA  2015 with case, as new £1100

taylor say: he acoustic/electric 314ce responds well to a wide range of playing styles thanks to Taylor’s medium-size Grand Auditorium body. Sapele shares mahogany’s strong and focused midrange response and, together with a Sitka spruce top, rings out with brightness and clarity.  Black binding flanks sapele’s ribbon-like grain, with small diamond fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic adding a traditional touch. The guitar incorporates a Venetian cutaway, comes equipped with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup, and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

The Taylor Expression System® 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.

Absolutely as new, unplayed condition.
