New things

  Just added a couple of guitars over on the secondhand page. Unusually for us, neither is Japanese or from the 70s! One is the sexy, shiny, slightly damaged Hagstrom Super Swede pictured which is a brilliant guitar and a bargain at only 444. More guitars on the way!

Don't forget: we're always on the lookout for decent instruments you're looking to get rid of, even if they need a bit a work. We love fixing them up and giving them a new lease of life! So, if you've an old guitar, banjo, mandolin or anything else guitar-like you're looking to sell: let us know.

Jingle Compo Update

With only hours to spare, we received a entry so fresh it had to be recorded live at the stall:

New UK-made Stuff!

We're the happy new stockist of two great products made on these shores!

StumbleCol cigar-box guitars are hand-made in Cambridge by local craftsman and player Colin Merry.

Each instrument is made from a real cigar-box, comes with bone nut and saddle and has two internal piezo pickups: and, unlike many cigar-box guitars you see, they're all fretted! We stock 3-, 4- and 6-string models.

Star Singer ceramic slides are handmade by Dolfinn Ruby Star Singer in Glastonbury. Each is unique, durable, beautiful... and they sound great! The slides are available in a variety of colours and sizes.

You should come and check them out!
