GUITARS by Make

All new products found on this site or in our showroom are offered in our capacity as official UK dealers, importers or distributors and all products are sourced either directly from the manufacturer or their official UK representative.

We sell a range of electric and acoustic guitars but please note that there are a number of electric models that emulate and simulate an acoustic guitar sound and playing style whilst remaining "electric" guitars. In these cases there are no sound boxes so they can be played with little sound unless plugged into a headphone or conventional amp.

Please don't hesitate to contact us by phone or email if you have any questions at all. We want you to find the right products and be delighted with your purchases. We hope that you will find the perfect product to suit your needs and your budget and we are always searching for new and interesting products to complement our range but we would also be very pleased to hear your own product and service suggestions. 

Remember too that we will usually buy back good travel instruments any time so if you want to trade up, part-exchange or simply sell your guitar, let us know and we will offer a fair price and friendly and helpful service.

You can always expect great quality from Yamaha and this latest member of their fine APX series, the all new APXT2 guitar is no different and adds a great new travel class electro/acoustic with real charm and one that will also appeal to a wide range of players.

This little baby has Yamaha’s very own ART pickup system (acoustic resonance transducer) specially designed to pickup the body resonance as well as the string vibration to give a rich and natural reproduction when amplified.

The guitar is as well made as all the models in Yamaha APX faimily but the APXT2 offers a smaller body featuring a neat cutaway design with an oval sound hole and slightly shorter scale.

For convenience the ART pre-amp system also features a chromatic tuner and the guitar comes with a gig-bag.

Pignose PGG200 Sunburst FAC
Pignose PGG200 Sunburst FAC

The Pignose PGG200 (aka the PGG100), according to the manufacturer, "puts all the funk, grit, and power of a Pignose amplifier right inside a very playable, kickin' little guitar. Simply pull on the famous Pignose knob, crank it up, and the famous Pignose sound comes straight out of the guitar and into your face". 

Well, we would probably have toned down the description just a little but we definitely agree with the sentiments and without doubt the Pignose remains one of our favourite guitars. It's very rare but some people may not appreciate the inherent dirty, feedback riddled and distorted tone of these babies so do watch the YouTube videos and decide for yourself. 

The PGG-200 features a 24¼ inch scale, a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with bolt-on maple neck, fixed bridge with adjustable saddles and both standard ¼ inch and 3.5mm output jacks which also allows the guitar to drive headphones and a regular amp.

The PGG200 also features a humbucker pickup, built-in amp, and metal Pignose volume control (push-pull on/off switch) and the gutsy 1 watt on-board amplifier is powered by a 9-volt battery. Truly a perfect guitar for every application...on stage, back stage, recording sessions, on the road, in your room, on your lunch break, or between classes. So, when the urge to rock hits you, your Pignose guitar can be there! 

So, nothing to plug in (unless you want to), just pick it up, turn it on and play! 

And for those intending to tweak and set-up to their own requirements this Pignose comes with standard factory strings & factory set-up.

Weighing a mere 1 lbs 7 oz (0.6kg) and measuring a mere 18” in length (45cm), the Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Ukulele could literally fit in your back pocket (assuming a largish backside of course), handbag, laptop bag or just about any bag or suitcase – but it also comes with its own – just in case!

Its solid body construction allows you to practice quietly anywhere, while the built-in custom piezo sounds great through your favourite amplifier, effects processor or headphone amp.

A brilliant little German designed guitar with stylish geometric body lines which help create a remarkable, unique and very practical travel guitar with plenty of tonal variation from its twin pickups and switching.

Well built, well finished with plenty of neat little touches that all add up to make this a guitar you will want to take around and show around. Complete with carry bag.

Traveler ESCAPE ORIGINAL
Traveler ESCAPE ORIGINAL

Originally introduced some 10 years ago, the Traveler Original Escape is one of our long standing favorites and a well proven guitar designed to suit the travelling and gigging acoustic player. This amazingly compact full scale (25½ inch) guitar is built with a mahogany satin stained solid alder body and a maple bolt on neck featuring a comfortable 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. In fact it's a solid body electric specifically built for acoustic players.

For us this Traveler Escape Guitar is close to perfect when travelling but it is also supremely comfortable and playable in any situation. Yes, even on stage. Perhaps the best testament to its qualities is its popularity amongst guitar teachers where this is one of our very best selling models to that group of very demanding professional owners. 

The headless design means that the Escape is only 29 inches long and it weighs just four pounds. It is equipped with a custom Shadow pickup, headphone amp and two channel EQ and you can also plug your headphones directly into the body for private and "silent" practice. 

Whether plugged into a PA, an acoustic amplifier or just headphones you will find that the Original Escape has a most remarkable range and it is equally at home, alone in a hotel room or on stage with the band.

The Escape comes with a custom tailored gig-bag and a set of headphones.

Traveler PRO SERIES
Traveler PRO SERIES

This ever popular Traveler Pro Series model is the result of 20 years development and improvement yet it retains all its original design features, charm and practicality. The current model is now fitted with twin pickups and was designed to appeal to both electric and acoustic style guitarists so it is a bit of a hybrid. 

The Traveler Pro Series is a full 24 ¾ inch scale (Les Paul style) guitar and a completely reliable companion for life on the road. It remains one of the smallest, full-scale travel guitars on the market and it is very versatile.

The guitar features a detachable wooden lap-rest and comes with a pair of "stethophones" which allow the player to hear themselves. These work just like a doctor's stethoscope which also means it can be completely battery free but you can also use any external headphone electronics, effects or amplifier.

Featuring both an acoustic style piezo and a magnetic single coil pick-up, the Pro Series can be any guitar you want it to be, pleasing to the electric purist and familiar to the more traditional acoustic player too. A real Jekyll and Hyde of a guitar one could say!

It weighs less than four pounds, is a mere 28 inches in length and packs up to just over 5 inches wide with its lap rest rotated in the stowed position for travel. 

Carry it in its tiny tailored custom gig-bag or don't bother with that and pop it in your suitcase instead. You will be amazed that a top quality guitar can be so compact and versatile and it makes a perfect travelling companion.

You also get a full-size humbucker and a full 25½ inch Fender style scale (650mm) with 22 jumbo frets, a Tune-o-Matic style bridge, adjustable truss rod and a deluxe Traveler gig bag. 

A serious and sophisticated electric guitar built for the serious traveller but also built to treasure and enjoy at home or in the studio too. You'll see it on stage too and like many owners, don't be surprised if this guitar becomes the one you go to and pick up first.

Finished in natural satin you have a simple, sturdy and stylish look and when you are choosing a guitar to travel with then this finish looks great and it's the most practical for the road too.

A great guitar.

SoloEtte CLASSICAL in Maple
SoloEtte CLASSICAL in Maple

When you seek the best the you will find that this all American SoloEtte Classical guitar is designed to provide all the details and authenticity desired by the practising classical guitarist. There are exactly 19 frets, no side dot markers, a scale length of 25½ inches (647.7mm), a nut width of 52mm (2.05 inches) and the string spacing at the saddle is 57mm (2¼ inches) and the action comes set to the proper classical string height and is adjustable.

There is nothing small or hybrid about the neck. It is the full standard classical guitar neck and with the frame attached, the SoloEtte body simulates the full size Torres classic guitar shape in your lap and balances beautifully.

The medium size frame piece, which supports your right arm, is the edge outline of your guitar and you can rest the weight of your arm on it so your fingertips will hover over the strings right where you would expect. The smaller frame piece in the upper left bout tilts back and affects the depth of the guitar. This is a great feature that pushes the guitar forward a bit so it will lie in the proper plane and not lay back on your chest or point at the ceiling.

You do not need to use a guitar strap and the head does not swing down toward the floor every time you let go of the neck, like some other travel guitars and because the tuners are at the "other end", this guitar is 5 inches shorter than "normal". This reorientation of the tuners also helps to create balance and offers superior tuning access.

The unique pickup system uses stereo microphones react to the movement of air caused by the string vibration inside the unique hollow saddle which produces a rounder and fuller sound than more typical piezo style pickups. An integrated stereo pre-amp will drive headphones and a standard guitar amplifier or p.a. system, in either mono or stereo.

Finally, the lightweight, compact and practical SoloEtte is complemented by a custom made soft carry case to ensure great but practical protection when travelling.

Shown here is the hard rock maple version which provides a truly contemporary look. This wood has a sleek and glassy feel to both neck and fingerboard and the one piece design allows the wood grain to be fully appreciated and it will be finished superbly.

A fine instrument. When only the best will do.

TheCruiser range, already one of the very shortest and lightest full scale travel guitars available, has been expanded with TheDUAL, a guitar which adds a second acoustic but pickup to the mix.

With TheDUAL, a Piezo under saddle transducer pickup is fitted in addition to the magnetic humbucker bringing you unique electro/acoustic voices. With this guitar you can drift from the fullness and grunt offered by the HOT humbucker right over to the brighter acoustic sound of the piezo and then blend the tone anywhere in between. 

With the modern headless design, removable and folding steel tubular frame, patented tuning system and full scale, you have a guitar which packs down to less than 27 inches in length, 3 pounds in weight and comes complete with a custom compact gig-bag (or just carry it in your suitcase). 

Three knobs and a three-way pickup selector switch provide the controls. A single tone control is joined by two rotary volume controls to enable a blend function when both pickups are selected. Alternatively you can also select only the humbucker or the piezo transducer pickup depending on the sound you are seeking.

SoloEtte SONGBIRD Nylon Hybrid
SoloEtte SONGBIRD Nylon Hybrid

Here is the stunning US made SoloEtte Songbird a hybrid nylon strung instrument with a contemporary 46 mm nut and a gentle 16 inch radius along the fingerboard. A feature which actually continues along the entire body and we love it. 

This is certainly a guitar with its own unique look and style derived in part from its great simplicity - something very hard for a designer to do.

The Songbird offers its owners something different and it will certainly appeal to the steel acoustic style player, offering a familiar format but with all the warmth and mellowness of a great nylon strung instrument. However, the pure Classical player will also find the Songbird a joy for those wanting to explore new techniques, repertoires and styles but with the familiarity of nylon strings.

These guitars are hand made from a single piece of American Hard Rock Maple and benefit from the unique Wright Technologies condenser mic pickup system and an integrated headphone amplifier.  

And of course the Songbird also comes in the tough but lightweight go anywhere, play anywhere top quality package so well proven with the SoloEtte Classical model.

Very special.

If you want the best you will find that this American built SoloEtte Classical guitar is designed to provide all the details and authenticity desired by the practising classical guitarist and so there are exactly 19 frets, no side dot markers, a scale length of 25½ inches (647.7mm), a nut width of 52mm (2.05 inches) and the string spacing at the saddle is 57mm (2¼ inches) whilst the action comes set to the proper classical string height and is adjustable.

There is nothing small or hybrid about the neck. It is the full standard classical guitar neck and with the frame attached, the SoloEtte body simulates the full size Torres classic guitar shape in your lap and balances beautifully.

The medium size frame piece, which supports your right arm, is the edge outline of your guitar and you can rest the weight of your arm on it so your fingertips will hover over the strings right where you would expect. The smaller frame piece in the upper left bout tilts back and affects the depth of the guitar. This is a great feature that pushes the guitar forward a bit so it will lie in the proper plane and not lay back on your chest or point at the ceiling.

You do not need to use a guitar strap and the head does not swing down toward the floor every time you let go of the neck, like some other travel guitars and because the tuners are at the "other end", this guitar is 5 inches shorter than "normal". This reorientation of the tuners also helps to create balance and offers superior tuning access.

The unique pickup system uses stereo microphones react to the movement of air caused by the string vibration inside the special hollow saddle which produces a rounder and fuller sound than more typical piezo style pickups. An integrated stereo pre-amp will drive headphones and a standard guitar amplifier or p.a. system, in either mono or stereo.

Finally, the lightweight, compact and practical SoloEtte is complemented by a custom made soft carry case to ensure great but practical protection when travelling.

Here we see the warmth and colour offered by the Indian Padauk tone wood which offers a more traditional look with its dark fingerboard and body. Again, the one piece design of the instrument neck and body allows you to fully appreciate the character and grain of this fabulous wood which will be finished superbly.

This instrument also features a special custom Schaller tuner upgrade made specially for SoloEtte. The tuners on this model feature ebony buttons, black capstans and nickle side plates

A fine instrument for when only the best will do.

Furch LJ10 Acoustic Guitar

If you ask us "what is the smallest acoustic guitar to take as cabin hand baggage in an aircraft" we will automatically reply "Furch LJ10". If you said "what is the best compact acoustic you have?" then we would also have to say "Furch LJ10" - also known as the "Little Jane". 

So here we present the amazing Furch LJ10 "travel" acoustic guitar which packs up into easily the most compact size we have found. With an LJ10 you will always be able to take a superb top quality guitar anywhere you go as it will defeat the meanest and toughest European airline cabin baggage size limits with ease and it would even fit easily inside a suitcase should you prefer.

And its good too - really good, but then again it is a European hand crafted instrument from a maker with a superb reputation and each is made to our order. It features a solid cedar top and mahogany sides and back and an open pore finish, a combination chosen to good strength and stability when travelling but also built to deliver the very best tone. 

The Furch LJ10 guitar is a winner because we know that when you travel with a guitar it's because you want to play it and that pleasure awaits the LJ10 owner at each stage of your journey.

We supply all our LJ10s with a specially ordered plain black, unwritten custom bag. This backpack style carry case is very well made to further protect your guitar and to make carrying it a breeze. The Furch "Little Jane" bag is also available by special order.

TheBone TheMOSQUITO-W HP
TheBone TheMOSQUITO-W HP

At long last acoustic guitarists can now benefit from a full scale disassembling guitar that easily fits within the most severe hand baggage limitations of any airline and is easily carried in a shoulder bag, briefcase, trolley bag or rucksack. It takes just seconds to assemble or disassemble and remains in tune or very close to. In fact you could carry 4 or more of these in one Ryanair regulation carry on cabin bag!

Triff ag are a maker of some of the finest lightweight guitars available but here the Swiss manufacturer has been thinking outside of the box and we are thrilled to see this great guitar - and believe us, we've seen a few!

TheBone TheMosquito-W (Western) is a full scale guitar constructed from hard rock maple with an under saddle Shadow transducer pickup and two channel EQ with rotary bass and treble controls voiced to sound sweet via an acoustic amp. Effectively a solid body electric for acoustic players.

The clever patented "body clip" frame system means this is also a perfectly balanced and very comfortable guitar to play, seated or standing, but here the "body" detaches and folds to create a super compact package.

As with all TheBONE guitars this is a top quality Swiss instrument and features the makers headless design with its unique patented thumb wheel tuning system that uses standard strings. 

TheBone TheMosquito W packs up to travel in seconds and then measures just 21 inches by 8 inches (54 x 20 cm) in its carry bag (even less less without the bag). So you will never ever have a problem taking one of these on any aircraft fitting easily inside cabin baggage or a briefcase, so you will have a great guitar wherever you go and zero hassle.

No need to complain about an airline carry on policy ever again and with a Mosquito-W you have a guitar you can use every day and not one that only comes out when you want to get on a plane.

Now that's what we call a "travel guitar".  Beat that!

SoloEtte Songbird Steel - Rhody
SoloEtte Songbird Steel - Rhody

Here we introduce you to the very latest SoloEtte Songbird family guitar, the steel string "acoustic" style electric model also known as the Rhody.

And just as you would expect from a SoloEtte, you have a delightful full scale handmade guitar of great simplicity and quality and a guitar designed to be at home with a very active lifestyle so it can go with you anywhere without concern. Mind you, those with rather more sedentary tastes will be delighted by its weight, superb balance and the feel in your hand that only comes with a truly fine instrument.

The SoloEtte Songbird Steel Rhody is built from a single piece of deep red Indian padauk tone wood featuring a 16 inch radius to both body and neck and a 1¾ inch nut. This wood choice provides great stability when traveling and has a deep warm red colour. 

The guitar features a two piece cutaway detachable frame and a super lightweight headless style one piece neck thru body construction. You have a full 25.5 inch scale, built in headphone amp (in full stereo courtesy of the special pickup), great balance and playability. The factory set action is a dream but further adjustment is made via the two way truss rod or at the bridge as with most conventional acoustics.

Of course this guitar is a superb travel companion but we think you will also be tempted to use it as your main instrument. 

So however and wherever you use it you will have a fine guitar to savour and enjoy.

TheBONE TheCLASSICAL II
TheBONE TheCLASSICAL II

Classical but revolutionary!

Yes, TheBONE goes classical and brings you a guitar that offers all the well proven design objectives, concepts and advantages of the TheBONE philosophy but focused on the needs of the classical guitar player.
 
With a familiar wide nut and flat rosewood fingerboard the guitar also features the Swiss maker's patented detachable and foldable steel tube "bodyclip" frame but this time it is adapted and modified to provide even greater comfort whilst suiting the classical guitarist's more upright playing position.
 
The clever headless design is perfectly balanced and features a hard rock maple body with a bolt on neck construction which offers a seemingly impossibly small overall length and weight when you are travelling and it includes the convenience of an integrated headphone amplifier so you can practice peacefully where and when you want.
 
We have no doubt that TheBONE TheCLASSICAL packs down to be the most compact and lightest full scale Classical style guitar available anywhere. With its frame re-attached it is also a pleasure to play and to own.
 
The latest MKII model features a dramatically revised body frame, significantly larger when unfolded to give the feel of a full bodied classical and aid posture and position. As always the frame remains becomes super compact and folds easily into the custom carry bag when travelling. 
 
New electronics with rotary controls along with a new bridge and compound saddle complete the new features.
 
So, whether you put it in with your luggage or carry it on your shoulder, this is a Classical guitar that can go with you anywhere and be ready to play at any time!

Emerald X5-OS Opus Electro - Red
Emerald X5-OS Opus Electro - Red

For many people the key features of a "travel" guitar are size and weight but for others it means a guitar that will survive and excel in adverse conditions ... water, heat, sand, dirt and rough handling and these are the characteristics that have made the Emerald X5 the best selling of the Emerald Guitars products.

With its offset soundhole the X5-OS repositions the bridge closer to the sweet spot of the sound board where it can best transmit and amplify the string vibration to produce a warmer and bigger sound making it an even better finger style and rhythm instrument than the original X5.

However the X5-OS retains its slim and comfortable neck profile and it now has a slightly wider 1.75 inch width nut and 24 playable stainless steel frets and it is super compact, lightweight yet almost indestructible - an ideal travelling companion.

Immense care and thought has gone into the design and manufacture of these top quality instruments. The X5-OS in this OPUS spec features cosmo black Gotoh 381 machine head tuners, along with Graphtech saddle, nut and bridge pins to help you get the most out of your guitar.

This model an Opus specification so it features an exposed carbon polished top with exposed carbon crystal ice finish to back and sides and this one is upgraded with a factory fitted B-Band A3T pickup/EQ with integrated tuner.

So, whilst you may be choosing your X5-OS primarily as a travel guitar you will find it a very rewarding instrument and a compliment to any collection so be ready to play it daily - travelling or not.

Supplied complete with a compact custom Emerald gig-bag giving great protection for the guitar and comfort for you.

Snap Dragon TRIPPER Pro
Snap Dragon TRIPPER Pro

Snap Dragon produce the most radical but practical travel guitars available anywhere and here we present the Tripper Professional fitted with the amazing Evertune® bridge that should only need tuning when you change strings.  

And just like every Snap Dragon, the Tripper folds up instantly so it fits easily to beat even the most severe airline cabin hand baggage carry-on size limits.

Despite its compact size, the Tripper retains a conventional mini headstock fitted with 6 locking tuners and features a 24 inch scale with a pair of dual rail humbucking pickups with coil tap function. 

Folded, the guitar fits into its bag of 55x24x8 cm (22x10x3 inches) - a size which defeats the meanest airline carry on hand baggage policy (and in Europe that even includes Ryanair). 

And what can we say about the Evertune® Bridge? "Simply incredible" might come close. With the Evertune installed you only need to tune your guitar once, when you change the strings, from then on the Evertune® bridge holds it there - in spite of any heat, cold, or humidity issues you may face.

Beware. Once you've tried the Evertune on your Tripper Pro you may find you'll want to upgrade all your other guitars with one too.

Heaven.

Furch LJ10 Acoustic/Electric
Furch LJ10 Acoustic/Electric

In response to numerous requests from the performers amongst you, we asked Furch to recommend the best pickup to fit to the LJ10 "Little Jane" guitar and they recommended the "LR Baggs Element Active System" (EAS VTC).

So that's what we ordered. When fitted to the LJ10 the EAS VTC system includes a mini volume and tone control cleverly mounted just inside the sound hole with the controls neatly hidden from view but easily accessible to the player.

The system is factory fitted by Furch and when amplified it perfectly suits and compliments the full character of the Little Jane as well as adding convenience whilst protecting the integrity of the guitar structure as no holes are cut in the body to fit the electronics, controls or battery box.

Acoustically the LJ10 is a superb, top quality guitar and with the LR Baggs system fitted, the best just got better.

Emerald X7-OS Opus Electro Green
Emerald X7-OS Opus Electro Green

This is the latest version of the Emerald X7-OS in OPUS spec with factory fitted B Band EQ upgrade. In this OPUS version the guitar features an exposed and polished carbon top with crystal ice finish on the back and sides and Gotoh 16:1 tuners.

The X7-OS is designed with an offset soundhole, along with reduced radius on the soundbox top, to provide the guitar with great volume and a full warm sound.  In this configuration the latest X7-OS handles finger style with ease and responds even better when used as a rhythm instrument to offer its owner the best of both worlds. Even better, the offset soundhole, great for projection to the audience, also means the player will hear themselves with a clarity and volume that can't be matched with a conventional centre soundhole layout.

The compact size, light weight and near indestructible nature of this guitar make it a great purchase for any travelling or performing guitarist as you can take this to places you would not dare think of using a "conventional" guitar.

So, a guitar you can take on a boat, take to a festival, use when camping, cycling or hiking. As a completely reliable gigging guitar it will shrug off the knocks, dings and bangs of a performers life but it will also reward all players with its unique character and playability. Not what you would expect from a conventional "travel guitar" at all.

Better still, you can take this and use it in places you would never ever think of using a conventional guitar.

Here we present another new and innovative instrument from Emerald, the short scale 12 string X5-OS SS now known as the AMICUS.

Designed to provide a completely new sound for guitar players, this 18” scale guitar is tuned up to D which sounds like having a capo on the 10th fret of a standard tuned guitar and in this instrument each string pair uses the same gauge string.

Uniquely, this allows a guitarist to play all their regular chord shapes without having to learn another instrument but gives a remarkable new sound, similar in some ways to a mandolin yet with a unique voice all of its own.

Inspirational.

Emerald X20-OS Opus Electro Red gb
Emerald X20-OS Opus Electro Red gb

Now this is one amazing and seriously good guitar and everyone that has tried it has remarked on its looks, feel and superb tone and clarity.

The X20-OS is the latest model in the Emerald Guitar line up and in many ways it is a revolutionary design yet one which incorporates all the experience and latest thinking from a maker who has already pushed the boundaries of high quality composite guitar design a very long way indeed.

So it's also a guitar very much designed for the modern player, respecting tradition but exploiting the skills of its maker and the new capabilities of the material and construction techniques employed. 

The X20-OS demonstrates the extra freedom of design offered by Emerald's carbon moulding technology so you will experience significant ergonomic benefits in the forearm bevel and the shaped cutaway giving improved access to the fretboard. Less noticeable, until you play it, is the unique asymmetrical back contour that allows the guitar to sit comfortably and securely on your leg when seated.

The neck has been given a very comfortable shallow C profile with a 1¾" nut and the heel has been massively reduced in profile to give superior access to the high frets and you have two octaves, which means 24 frets on this guitar.

The X20-OS has a big voice, developed with a new laminate structure to give it a rich full sound and the unique offset sound hole placement it gives wonderful projection to the player as well as audience.

So a guitar that is a major step forward in so many ways and whilst its full size would normally disqualify it from being included here as a “travel” instrument we know that it perfectly fulfills the role of a big, tough, 1st class performer’s guitar that will take and shrug off the knocks and bangs of life on the road and life on stage and survive to return and play day after day. Not something you can say of a traditional wooden guitar.

This guitar is an Emerald OPUS specification but we have ordered it with a factory fitted B-Band pickup & EQ upgrade. The guitar features a high gloss exposed carbon top, with crystal ice  finish to the back and sides, Gotoh tuning machines, Graphtech, nut, saddle and bridge pins, a B Band A3T EQ with integrated tuner and comes in an Emerald custom gig bag.

We are confident that you will be impressed.

SoloEtte Songbird JAZZ
SoloEtte Songbird JAZZ

The SoloEtte SongBird Jazz has an EMG humbucking pickup perfectly positioned at the neck for a sweet jazz tone and will produce cristal clear mellow chords as well as smooth sweet single notes and is intended to be an archtop players alternate dream.

A lesson in elegant simplicity, the guitar includes jumbo frets and a full 1¾ inch nut width making it a performance instrument in every way. The specification includes an on-board headphone pre-amp for silent practice and backstage warm up and the action is set to a proper low string height and can be fully adjusted with the Schaller roller bridge.

The SongBird cutaway frame assembles to create a comfortable guitar shape in your lap or on your leg when seated and balances beautifully. The edge outline of the frame allows you to rest the weight of your arm on it so your fingertips will hover over the strings right where you would expect and because of the headless design the tuners are at the other end so this full sized guitar is a good 5 inches shorter than a standard guitar. This layout creates superb balance whilst offering superior tuning and twin strap buttons are fitted for those who prefer to play standing.

The detachable Frame is solid ¼" aluminum rod covered in black polyurethane tubing whilst the body and bolt on neck are made from Hard Rock Maple (Acer Saccharum) "Canadian Maple" with a pau ferro fingerboard. The Jazz features a gentle 16 inch neck radius which continues along the length of the body, a design feature which adds to the flowing lines of this stunning instrument.

As with every SoloEtte model you will receive a hand finished guitar made by a tiny team of craftsmen who love what they do and you will feel this when you pickup and play one.

Less noticeable, until you play it, is the unique asymmetrical back contour that allows the guitar to sit comfortably and securely on your leg when seated.

The neck has been given a very comfortable shallow C profile with a 1 3/4" nut and the heel has been massively reduced in profile to give superior access to the high frets and there are two octaves, 24 frets on this guitar.

The X20-OS has a big voice, developed with a new laminate structure to give it a rich full sound and the unique offset sound hole placement it gives wonderful projection to the player as well as audience.

So a guitar that is a major step forward in so many ways and whilst its full size would normally disqualify it from being included here as a “travel” instrument we know that it perfectly fulfils the role of a big, tough, 1st class performer’s guitar that will take and shrug off the knocks and bangs of on the road and on stage. In fact all the activities that so quickly ruin a traditional wooden guitar.

As a top of the range "Artisan" specification this X20-OS features a high gloss exposed carbon top, sides, back, neck and headstock, top end Gotoh tuning machines, Graphtech, nut, saddle and bridge pins, a B Band EQ with integrated tuner and comes in a Hiscox Liteflite hard shell case with green interior.

Hirsch SB-1 Radius
Hirsch SB-1 Radius

If you always seek the best, then you may well have found it.

A Hirsch SB-1 Radius guitar offers its owner a unique experience displaying the best components, woods, appointments and craftsmanship to create a singularly desirable instrument.

And this is one serious small bodied guitar, designed for everyday use but also to help make travelling with a great guitar fun and easy.

So in brief ... here we have a full scale (24¾ inch), full tone, professional class guitar constructed in mahogany with special contoured body with flamed maple top, contrasting maple edge binding, set neck with an ebony fingerboard and the compact Hirsch four plus two headstock.

Now add a Wilkinson VS100 tremolo, Gotoh tuners, a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups, featuring a bridge JB Trembucker (with coil tap) and a Quarter Pounder SC at the neck and what more could you want?

Very possibly the most expensive "travel guitar" available anywhere but also a superb every day guitar and a dream for anyone wanting a small bodied, lightweight but top class guitar.

There are just five individually numbered "First Edition" guitars available. We have one available right now.

The web is a great medium but this is a guitar you may well wish to see to believe. You are of course, welcome to come in to see one, touch one and play one for yourself - just give us a ring.
