Looks like there are going to be quite a few interesting new releases this year. Loving the look of the new Fano Standard range, the Marshall Mini Jubilee looks cool, as well as some nice new Gibsons, Two Rock, Collings and plenty more………….Not sure anyone really needs 3 necks though!

Fender Custom Shop Showcase……..

Every year at Namm the Custom Shop has a showcase evening presenting the new range for the year ahead and lots of tasty one off models. We get the opportunity to buy the stand guitars by putting our cards in the guitars and later on they draw lots to see who gets them…we put plenty of tickets out and will see later what we managed to get… Its a bit of a bunfight, really busy and difficult to take pictures but I did manage to get a few…

Some Golden Oldies.

Take a blast from the past with these two super cool golden oldies.


A 1930’s Gibson L37 Archtop

  1. P1110242 P1110266 P1110273 P1110297 P1110303 P1110307 P1110418 P1110427  Just a glance at this guitar can be enough to fall in love with it. Dents, splits and scratches to boot, this vintage Gibson instrument is sure to have some stories behind it. It even made it through the second world war.



A 1962 Martin 0018G

P1110252 P1110258 P1110260 P1110277 P1110280 P1110288 P1110292Straight out of the swinging sixties comes this fantastic example of a 0018G. With scratches and dents all over and a nice crack in the side, this guitar certainly has been around the block, however still plays effortlessly, looks the business and has a superb tone.

Both of these stunning guitars are available in our acoustic store and on our website.

The Year of Yamaha

What a year 2015 was for Yamaha. The creative bunch that they are, have come up with some really nice gear to get us going into 2016.


September bought us the much awaited THR Head. The THR Head is a 100 watt head with all the familiar functions of the much loved THR practise amps built with some fancy extras on top. All the power that you need for gigging, all the functionality you need for the studio and the same quality sound at all volumes so you can even use it at home.  We are very impressed with what Yamaha are doing with solid state technology here. Full range of valve settings provides an impressive variety of tones that any guitarist will find joy playing through. Both the single and dual channel amps are available now from our website.



December then revealed the new Revstar guitars. These are very exciting as they are the first new Yamaha guitar shape in over a decade. The Revstar guitars combine style with essence. They not only look fantastic but they make all the right noises too. The EQ switch is of particular interest and we think works particularly well on the P90 versions. Yamaha being Yamaha, they have worked on a technically brilliant alternative to a coil tap that works very well even on single coil P90’s. The 300 and 400 series offer fantastic value for money where the 500 series upwards offer a fresh look at the electric guitar. The Revstar guitars can be found here.
