Hire classic, vintage and iconic guitars - electrics, basses, acoustics - plus legendary effects pedals and amps.

"God's Own" because the guitars, amps and pedals you can hire are Artist Owned or Made Famous By the Gods - some of the most iconic guitarists and songwriters of the past 50 years.  Better than "God's Own" because you get to use and play that gear, just by hiring.  This is your way to enjoy a range of iconic guitars, without breaking the bank or tying yourself to a single guitar.

Whatever your reason or need, there's a guitar, amp or pedal for you:

Personal practice

Try-before-you-buy

Band practice

Home and studio recording

Live performance

Film and Video shoots

Photo shoots

Film and theatre productions

Themed events and parties

Marriage proposals and weddings

And more . . .

In the end, it's really down to your needs and imagination.  My promise to you is a high quality, end-to-end hire experience, with some of the most iconic guitars and gear in the world.

Hirer Of The Month: Lewis Capaldi & Amelia Studios

Pointless.  No, not the daytime quiz show, but the second single from Lewis Capaldi's upcoming Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent.  An absolutely heartfelt power banger, hitting Number One in the Charts in early-January, and guaranteed to be the "first dance" choice of newlyweds at weddings throughout 2023.

Set in the beautiful desolation of a chalk quarry, recorded live and then filmed to the recorded track, it's the song and Lewis' delivery that knock it out the park (or the quarry).  And this fabulous vintage Martin D-28, ringing through beneath the vocal.  Lewis loved it so much, he also hired it for the acoustic version of preceding single Forget Me.  Such a versatile guitar!  Big thanks to all at Amelia Studios for the hires - and to Lewis, of course, for giving this D-28 its time in the sunshine.

1965 Gibson J-45, 
Cherry Sunburst, faded, 
as made famous by Donovan
1965 Gibson J-45, Donovan
The guitar behind Donovan's catalogue of hits from the 60s - written and played almost entirely on his 1965 Gibson J-45.  And the one he taught a certain fingerstyle to John Lennon on.  Same year, same spec, beautiful player.
1965 Fender Precision Bass, Fiesta Red
1965 Fender Precision Bass,
Fiesta Red,

as made famous by Jet Harris
1965 Precision Bass, salmon-hued Fiesta Red beauty.  A timeless bass from a golden era, built in the final months before CBS took Fender into a world of modern mass production.  And a near perfect match to the P-Bass famously played by Jet Harris in The Shadows, truly the first British guitar gods.
1965 Fender Stratocaster Jimi Hendrix
1965 Fender Stratocaster,
Olympic White,
as made famous by Jimi Hendrix
As close as it comes to the Olympic White rosewood board Strat that Jimi Hendrix landed in the UK with in September 1966, just before he set the world, and some sacrificial guitars, on fire.  No, this isn't one of his, but it claims the birthright and carries its mid-sixties mojo with absolute integrity and unstoppable swagger.  A truly stunning guitar!
