A lovely Les Paul Classic in excellent condition with only a few signs of use by the previous owner. In subtle lemon sunburst finish and featuring the factory original Peter Green pickup option which cost an extra £250 when new. A very nice guitar indeed.

2002 Gibson Les Paul Classic



A very nice example of a rare Les Paul double cutaway from Gibson. Translucent red finish with single volume/tone controls and a lovely bound fingerboard. Seymour Duncan bridge pickup gives a hard edge to that classic LP sound.

1998 Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cut



In lovely condition for a guitar that is over thirty years old and the natural finish to the body shows only a few signs of use. Rosewood fingerboard, big head stock and 3-bolt neck add to the vintage image while the hard-tail bridge gives the sound to match its looks.

1979 Fender USA Stratocaster



From the Saein factory comes another Korean-made Epiphone Les Paul, this one in a very handsome translucent blue finish to show the maple top off at its best. Very playable and with no signs of serious abuse.

2000 Korean Epiphone Les Paul



A real classic American Strat’ with all the looks and attitude to match its age. The sunburst colour, black 3-ply pickguard and genuine road-worn finish give this guitar the perfect image. Once plugged in there’s also no mistaking that classic ‘70s Fender sound.

1974 Fender USA Stratocaster



A real beauty finished in red with a white 3-ply pickguard & rosewood fingerboard, this MIJ ‘86 J-Bass is in very good condition with only light signs of wear to show for its 27 year life so far. All original hardware and never been messed about with - a true classic in the making.

1986 Fender Japan Jazz Bass

A real old-timer now approaching half a century but definitely wearing well. This thinline, fully hollow-bodied archtop was made at the Gibson Kalamazoo factory and is in very nice condition but undergone alterations

and the level of wear you would expect given its age. Please ask for more details

c1965 Gibson ES 120T





Another lovely Korean Epi’ from the Samick factory. This 2000 model is very original and looks gorgeous in the red finish with ivory binding. Beautiful condition and increasingly hard to find.

2000 Korean Epiphone Dot 335



One of the last of these great quality Korean made Epiphones from the Samick factory. This 1998 model 335 is in excellent condition with very little sign of wear and represents tremendous value for money.

1998 Korean Epiphone Dot 335



Another quality PRS guitar from the USA, this ‘04 Custom 22 model has two hot humbucking pickups, a PRS tremolo bridge and a gorgeous trans’ cherry finish to the figured maple top. Also includes PRS locking tuners and bird inlaid fret markers. Very good condition.

2004 PRS Custom 22



Absolutely beautiful condition with almost no signs of wear. Blue flamed maple top with contrasting binding shown to its best by the deleted pickguard. Light weight, modern chambered body makes this a very easy Les Paul to play.

2011 Gibson Les Paul Standard

A beautiful left handed Korean Epi’ Les Paul in cherry sunburst finish from the Un Sung factory. Lovely condition with little sign of wear and a gorgeous flame maple top to give the classic LP style at a bargain price.

2003 Korean Epiphone Les Paul Left Handed



This sunburst finished Epiphone 335 from Korea is a class act in lovely condition. From the Samick factory it is one of the last of these excellent, Gibson badged, quality instruments before production switched to China. A bargain at this price.

2000 Korean Epiphone Dot 335



A beautiful American PRS Custom 22 in blue with gold-coloured pickups. Very nice condition with just a few minor marks which do not affect playability. Dot inlaid fret markers on a rosewood fingerboard and PRS tremolo bridge.

2002 PRS Custom 22



Finished in stunning Lake Placid Blue with rosewood fingerboard, this beautiful American Standard lefty is in outstanding condition with barely a mark to speak of and still got the protective film on the pickguard.
