Another day... another strat

  Got a new old Japanese Squier Stratocaster (you know we can't resist anything Japanese). This one has a nice solid neck with maple fingerboard and it certainly has that strat mojo. Serial dates it to about 1993 and it has been well cared for. It's a beaut!

What else is new? We have a great starter guitar: a nice, shiny Ibanez GAX-30 in great condition for only 90.

Don't forget we also buy and sell cool old pedals like this DOD Supra Distortion made in the US in those halcyon days of the 80s. It could be yours for only 45! We also have an old DOD Super American Metal. And an old DOD Classic Tube. We have other brands, too!

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!
