2018 Epiphone Les Paul Standard 1960s style Gold Top – £375

Unplayed factory fresh guitar with professional neck repair. Completely original with Grover tuners, stock Epiphone humbuckers and electronics. Frets have been levelled crowned and polished, set up to perfection. These retail for £600-650 so this is an absolute bargain. No case.

Mid 1970s Kawai KS-11 guitar – £375

Great quality guitar, solid mahogany, set neck, thick carved maple top, slotted headstock, lovely quality tuners. The top is over sprayed with matt black acrylic as it’s had a long and hard life and the maple top wasn’t very pretty in the first place. Not very original, hence the price. Good ones of these can nudge £1000. I’ve had it over 30 years but now it’s surplus to requirements as I have too many guitars. Comes with a road worn Gibson Les Paul case.

1970s Fresher Flying V Guitar – £300

1970s Fresher Flying V guitar restored from Pete Overend Watts (Mott the Hoople) collection. Completely original apart from tuners and satin black refinish. Levelled, dressed and professionally set up with 09s. Very nice pickups., hard case included.

Mahalo Ukulele with hard case – £20

Solid body single coil electric mandolin – £180

Most electric mandolins are hollow bodied acoustic instruments which can be problematic when using effected/distorted sounds with feedback, unruly harmonics and washiness. This is a specific electric build with a much tighter controlled sound and a beefy single coil pickup which bypasses all the usual problems.
