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.  Our 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: The Royal Opera House

One of the reasons I love this hire business is that you never know who's going to hire a guitar and for what!  I'd never have predicted that one of the guitars would end up on stage at London's Royal Opera House.  And to have a Jag-Stang making a cameo appearance in an opera about the final days of Kurt Cobain's time in this world seemed about as likely as seeing it in the man's hands himself.  But that's the joy and surprise of it all.

If you got to see the Royal Opera House's Last Days, you were very lucky indeed.  Five nights, sold out. a female in the lead role, a startling and surprisingly harmonious mix of opera and grunge, costumes by Balenciaga (that lime-green dressing gown!), and a 1996 Fender Jag-Stang in Sonic Blue.  A rare performance and a great honour to have a guitar designed by Kurt play its part in the telling of his story!

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!
1989 Gibson Les Paul Custom, 
Ebony, 
as made famous by Les Paul
1989 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty
I know, I know.  Any guitar with the Les Paul moniker was made famous by Les Paul.  But this one more than most deserves that special mention.  The executive-class, high-gloss, 24-carat gold, mother-of-pearl inlaid, split-diamond sparkler that is the Black Beauty.  Guitar of dreams!
