  • In and up on the used wall today is a Shenk Ophirio Reserve. With cutaway and in European spruce and sapele (my favourite back and sides wood) it has a fantastic clear and deep sound. It in as new condition, with a hard case.

  • Also so in today a lovely Dave King Katrina. It’s a small one to handle but with strong, warm and well defined sound.

  • My latest guitar from Rod Schenk is here. This is a fantastic performers guitar, its very balanced, has a Baggs pickup and a cutaway so its ready to plug in and amaze!

  • Its been a while since I last had a Gibson Snakehead. This one is the junior model but it still has that classic snakehead sound, the bass and warmth of an oval hole with some of the pop of an f hole.

  • Its Christmas time!! For me anyways – and it could be for you - one of my very favourite guitars has come home. Michi Matsuda is one of the nicest guys and very best luthiers working today. His designs are unique and the tone is unsurpassed. This custom M1 with extended bass came home with me from Healdsburg 2009 and was snapped up immediately. The owner has had a change in his tone preference so he traded it for the Cocobolo M1. I am delighted to have it back… for a while at least.

  • On this wet and dreary day a used Lowden S10 has arrived..

  • Weber Gallatins A4 in natural and faded leather have just arrived, so I now have the Gallatin A4 and A5 in both colours in stock. As I have said many times before (yawn…) this is where professional quality hand made in the US of A mandolins start. They look great and play like they cost a LOT more.

  • Today’s newbies are a Collings C10 in a fab sunburst finish and a great value Hathway octave mandolin.

  • Two National Resophonics mandolins are back in stock. A beautifully flamed maple RM1 and a walnut RM1 with hotplate pickup, rope binding and pearloid headstock veneer. These beauties are so loud (even without the hotplate plugged in) that you should be able to hear me playing them.

  • A loverly used Brook 12 frets to the body, short scale 12 string has just arrived.
