OK, these are guitars I said I would never sell, something expensive has caught my wondering eye so I am reluctantly making these available. If what I am lusting after sells i will be withdrawing these 3 beauties.

SOLD SOLD  MIJ 1982 George Benson GB10. As good as an example as you find outside of a museum with very minimal wear, I searched hard and long for one as good as this.....£1650  £1600  SOLD

Next up a lovely PRS

September 1992 PRS Custom 24 in Vintage Yellow 10 Top which is beautiful, the depth of the grain is a sight to behold!. It has moon inlays and is fitted with Dragon 1 pickups, which sound powerful yet sweet. I do have an original HFS which is included. The fingerboard as far as I know is Indian rosewood, but could be Brazillian rosewood as it looks so different to any other rosewood PRS Ive owned.

It is in fab condition for a 26 year old with only a couple of very very minor marks on the top and some light worming on the rear. It has not been out of the house for the 20 years Ive owned it.

I bought this PRS in the late 90’s and was always puzzled in that it does not have the ‘small heel’ that it should have being a ’92 pre big factory build.  Having posted on the PRS Forum to try to find out why it had an unusual heel for the year, my question was finally answered by a PRS employee who kindly looked up their records to discover that it was a special order guitar with a wide/fat neck profile, which was then only found on the original Artist series guitars.

Original hard case, again, in great condition,  and some paperwork......£1995

And finally a cracking S type, 


2001 Melancon Classic Artist, another stunner, up there with the Andersons Ive owned but at Fender prices. Dimarzio pups, which I think were replacements for the original DuncansWhats so good about it, for me at least, is the big neck and 12"radius. here is the spec sheet on the Mel site:
