Iconic Guitars, Amps & Effects For Hire

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


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: Trickshooter Social Club

Another month of hot competition for Hirer Of The Month.  So hats off to Chicago-based Trickshooter Social Club for taking the laurels.   They flew in from Chicago and immediately kicked off a mini-tour of the UK, taking in London's Underbelly and Brighton's The Great Escape along the way, and bringing their brand of fuzzy, tweedy, garage-y, country-tinged, stomp and clap American rock-n-roll to our shores.  Sweet and raucous nights!


All with the support of a trio of Fender classics: a 1992 Mexican Telecaster, which always punches above its weight, and comes with a timely reminder from guitarist Steve that it's no entry-level guitar - "brother, it didn’t sound or play like no entry-level Tele. Loved this thing from the moment I picked it up until the time I, sadly, had to give it back"; a 2011 Graham Coxon Tele, loved by companion guitarist Larry - "an amazing sounding, brilliantly set-up Tele"; and a natural ash 1982 P-Bass, which, as bass guitarist James said had only one downside . . . "I had to give it back".  There's a theme here.  Just great to be able to help the band out, and looking forward to welcoming them back in the future!

1997 Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster
1997 Fender SRV Stratocaster,
Three Tone Sunburst,

as made famous by Stevie Ray Vaughan
A truly iconic Stratocaster.  It doesn't take much to guess whose signature model this is.  That bold "SRV" print on the pickguard gives it all away.  A standard production model, but everything about this guitar is tribute to one of the greatest guitarists there's ever been.
1974 Rickenbacker 4001 Bass, Bruce Foxton
1974 Rickenbacker 4001 Bass,
as made famous by Bruce Foxton
The utterly unmistakeable Rickenbacker 4001 Bass, in classic Jet-glo.  Famous in the hands of so many great bass guitarists, but for me it's Bruce Foxton that brought it into the modern world, when The Jam exploded into our consciousness in 1977.  This one from 1974 a perfect match.  I'm going underground!
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.
