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.

Pignose 7-100 Amplifier
Pignose 7-100 Amplifier

And for those that want the Pignose sound but don't have the pleasure of owning a Pignose guitar ......

Created in 1972 and famously used by Frank Zappa, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin and many others, the Pignose 7-100 guitar amplifier answers a worldwide demand for a high quality, economical and completely portable amplifier and it gives the electric guitar the same mobility as the acoustic weighing only five pounds! You can even attach a standard guitar strap and sling the Pignose over your shoulder.

Powered by six AA batteries (not included) or by an external AC adapter (not included) which is easily stored inside the amplifier case.

It's a Practice Amp: With a Pignose, you can practice anywhere at any time. It features a full array of tones from clean to crunchy.

It's a First Amp: The Pignose 7-100 combines economy with quality and will never outlive its usefulness when you buy up to bigger amps. It will always be handy for traveling and for working on quick ideas on the road. And it has a pre amp out jack!

It's a Studio and Performing Amp: The Pignose 7-100 sound is so good that many players use it as a preamp in stage and studio performances. This is done by sending the pre amp out signal to a bigger amp or PA (for stage performances) or to the recording console (for recording).

It's the Ultimate Portable Amp: This is the one that started it all more than thirty years ago.

Yes, the powerful little Pignose, with its distinctively funky Pignose sound, has been on call in countless recording studios, rehearsal halls, dressing rooms, dorm rooms and backyards around the world since the rockin' seventies. Get tones from clean to pig-filthy with the turn of the coolest volume knob in the world.

5 watts of gigantic earth shattering power,  a 5" loudspeaker, AC/DC operation. Requires 6 AA batteries (not included) or optional AC adapter, which is also available for purchase in the Accessories section of our website.

(all the above superlatives are by Pignose - we ourselves are a little more reserved and we simply think that this is a really great go-anywhere and sturdy little amp that is always going to be a useful and fun bit of kit to own - and that every home should have one!).

Pignose PGG259 Deluxe in White
Pignose PGG259 Deluxe in White

Whilst the Pignose PGG259 Deluxe in black remains one of our favourite guitars and a best seller too are stoked that we can also offer you this all new 2015 deluxe version finished in gloss white. The finish is complemented with gold coloured hardware, special large inlaid block mother of pearl neck position markers and a white and black stripe binding running right around the body, neck and headstock, all elements that contribute to the sophisticated look and feel to this already awesome guitar. 

The Pignose PGG259 Deluxe has a 24¼ inch scale, a 22-fret fingerboard with bolt-on maple neck, fixed bridge with fully adjustable saddles and both standard ¼ inch and 3.5mm output jacks which allow the guitar to drive headphones as well as a regular amp. The Pignose people say, "this guitar 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 have toned it down just a bit but we agree with the sentiments completely.

The Deluxe version PGG259 features a humbucking pickup, built-in amp, and metal Pignose volume control (push-pull on/off switch) and a gutsy one watt amplifier, powered by a 9-volt battery.

Truly a great guitar in any application...on stage, back stage, recording sessions, on the road, in your hotel room, halls of residence, office, taxi cab, truck or simply on your lunch break, or in-between lectures. So wherever and whenever the urge to play hits you your guitar can be there! 

And with nothing to plug in (unless you just want to) just pick it up, turn it on and grin.  

Serious fun.

Traveler EG1 Standard Red
Traveler EG1 Standard Red

Just arrived for the first time in Europe is the all new Traveler EG1 Standard. It is built from light weight African mahogany with a satin finish that gives the guitar a simple and very modern look. 

The EG1 Standard is a 24¾" full scale guitar (just like a Gibson Les Paul) and it plays just like a top quality guitar for the electric purist but packaged in this innovative design it is both very lightweight and surprisingly compact and comfortable so the tag "travel guitar" suits it very well even though we should probably just call it a great guitar!  It comes ready to play and ready to travel.

This guitar is complete with a built in headphone amplifier from Pocket Rockit, a full-size chrome covered humbucker, a full Gibson style scale, 21 jumbo frets, inlaid block position markers, an ebonised rosewood fingerboard and bolt-on neck.

Traveler PRO SERIES Twin Pickup
Traveler PRO SERIES Twin Pickup

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.

Sinsonido AS101C SPL MH Nylon Hybrid

We believe that this latest Sinsonido AS101C/SPL nylon strung hybrid guitar to be rather special.

This, the very latest AS101/SPL (special) shares all the benefits of the other models in the range (integrated headphone amp, light weight, compact dimensions, adjustable height bridge  ...) but it also features a hybrid contemporary neck width of 46mm with a radiused fingerboard and a cutaway frame which makes access to the higher frets much easier than on a "classical" nylon guitar.

So here we have an electric guitar which performs just like an acoustic nylon instrument and it should please any discerning player, regardless of standard. Separate treble and bass controls on the AS101 models help you find the perfect tone.  

Steel string guitarists will find the layout familiar but this guitar brings with it the warmth and tone that only a nylon guitar can offer and this is even more true thanks the US Wright Technologies stereo pick-up. Classical players will find the modern neck a revelation which will encourage a new and wider repertoire.

And if you are a learner then you will be delighted by a great guitar that allows you to fully develop your skills yet one which will grow with you. Fantastic for its silent practice capability and great for its plugged in performance ability. 

Whatever your standard, you will find that this is a guitar that you will want to keep, always, no matter how you develop or how many guitars you will eventually own.

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.

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.

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.

And its good too - really good, but then again it is a European hand crafted instrument from Furch, a maker with a superb reputation. The guitar features a solid cedar top, solid 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.

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.

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.

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

SoloEtte CLASSICAL Left Hand

The SoloEtte Classical is available as a left handed model from time to time.

Because SoloEtte workshop must cease all normal production and very carefully set-up and calibrate all its tooling to make just one left handed guitar all other activity on "standard" models must cease so each lefty is essentially a custom order.

We try to keep a lefty in stock whenever we can but we may be waiting for the next left handed build so get in touch if you are interested and we'll get one here as quickly as we can with another standard order.

This left handed version shares all the features, benefits and quality of the right handed "standard" versions but it is perfectly mirrored.

As with the standard guitar the left handed model can be made in maple or padauk

Furch LJ10 Acoustic/Electro EAS VTC
Furch LJ10 Acoustic/Electro EAS VTC

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

So that's what we ordered to create an "electro" model - each commissioned and built specially for us here at Play Away Guitars.

When added 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.

When plugged in and amplified the system perfectly suits and compliments the true character of the Little Jane as well as adding convenience and the system protects the integrity of the guitar structure as no holes are cut in the body to fit the electronics, controls or battery box.

Furch build top quality instruments and the LJ10 "Little Jane" exhibits all the characteristics of Furch's craftmanship and experience to create a superb, top quality guitar. Forget this is a "travel guitar", think of it instead as a great, daily playing, favourite guitar that let's you take it on your travels effortlessly. And now with the LR Baggs system fitted, the best just became even better.

Supplied with our specially ordered plain black, unwritten custom carry case unique to us at Play Away Guitars and you have our best price guarantee on this model too.

Emerald X20-OS Artisan Carbon Black
Emerald X20-OS Artisan Carbon Black

Now this is one amazing and seriously good guitar and everyone that has tried an X20-OS has remarked on its great looks, feel, balance and superb tone.

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 guitar design a very long way indeed.

So it's also a guitar designed for the modern player, respecting tradition yet exploiting the the skill of the maker and the new capabilities of the material and construction techniques employed. 

The X20-OS demonstrates a new freedom of design offered by Emerald's carbon molding 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 too 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 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 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. In fact any and all of the activities that so quickly ruin a traditional wooden guitar.

This guitar is the latest Artisan specification with B-Band pickup & EQ as standard along with high gloss exposed carbon top, back, sides and headstock, Gotoh 510 tuning machines, Graphtech, nut, saddle and bridge pins and comes in a custom Hiscox Lite-Flite case.

We are confident that you will be impressed.
