1925 Gibson L-1  –  £2199

1925 Gibson L-1 – £2199

NEW ARRIVAL  This guitar is a real beauty, and in amazing condition for a nearly 100 year old guitar. It's a rare example of an arch top guitar with a central sound hole. Tonally it's voiced for blues and jazz - this is the predecessor to the flat top L1 that Robert...

1937 Epiphone Olympic  –  £1749

1937 Epiphone Olympic – £1749

SOLD  This guitar is from Epiphone’s golden archtop age, when the company was still based in New York before they were bought by Gibson in 1957. 30’s and 40’s Epiphone archtops have long been considered among the best of their kind, and the Epiphone Olympic is now...

1936 Kalamazoo KG14  –  £1749

1936 Kalamazoo KG14 – £1749

1963 Epiphone Frontier  –  £2999

1963 Epiphone Frontier – £2999

SOLD  When Gibson purchased Epiphone in 1957 there was already a line of great flat-top guitars in place. The FT-110 featured Maple back and sides and Gibson gave it the name “Frontier”. They changed the entire body shape to a square shouldered 16 1/4″ wide...

1968 Gibson Hummingbird  –  £2499

1968 Gibson Hummingbird – £2499

SOLD A cherry sunburst Hummingbird is probably my favourite Gibson model, and probably the most iconic looking. This example from 1968 is visually stunning - the cherry sunburst is still vivid, and the quilted Mahogany back and sides are quite stunning, plus there’s...
