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: Kyle Daniel

Honoured to help out Nashville country star Kyle Daniel when the worst thing possible had happened, just ahead of him kicking off 2022's Nashville Meets London concert series. His go-to acoustic was damaged on the flight across the Atlantic, leaving him with just 24 hours to find a replacement.   2006 Gibson Hummingbird to the rescue!  It's all about moments like these.  At the risk of immodesty, it's a story best told by Kyle himself:

"Iain is the man! Prompt, professional and came through in a pinch when my guitar was broken on the way to London on this last tour. This Gibson Hummingbird played like a DREAM! Iain made sure that the guitar was set up properly, as I play a half step down with a lot of capo songs, so it’s very easy to hear when the guitar hasn’t been cared for. I can tell you first hand that Iain knows exactly what he’s doing when setting up a guitar! I will absolutely be using him for any needs moving forward!!! Thanks for saving the day!!!"

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 Black Beauty
1989 Gibson Les Paul Custom, 
Ebony, 
as made famous by Les Paul
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!
1988 Martin D-35 P, David Byrne
1988 Martin D-35P,
Natural,

as made famous by David Byrne
A man in a suit walks onto a bare stage, he starts up his boombox, and, almost possessed, launches into Psycho Killer.  One of the most iconic openings to any concert video, Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense.  With David Byrne playing his heart and soul out on a Martin
D-35.  This one isn't his, but it's as close as it gets!
