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

 

 

"God's Own" because the guitars we share are Artist Owned or Made Famous By the Gods - some of the most iconic guitarists and songwriters from the past 50 years.  Better than "God's Own" because you too can get to share and play those very same guitars - through a simple direct hire model.  This is your way to enjoy a range of iconic guitars, without breaking the bank or tying yourself to a single guitar.

Just take a look at the many ways our hirers have made the most of the gear on offer to date:

Personal practice

Band practice

Home and studio recording

Live performance

Video shoots

Photo shoots

Film and theatre productions

Themed events and parties

Marriage proposals and weddings

And more . . .

More than a third of our hirers are visiting London from overseas, so if you just can't go without having a guitar during your stay, we're more than happy to help.

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 in the world.

Hirer Of The Month: Noah Kinehan

Big thanks - and a tiny bit of envy - to music student Noah Kinehan for this shot of him in session with this first-run 1996 Fender Jag-Stang.  When I was growing up, music school meant a dusty conservatoires, filled with classically trained musicians and very different types of stringed instrument.  Why would anyone want a school for modern-day instruments  . . . like electric guitars?  Nowadays, the options are abundant, the teaching tied into today rather than yesterday, and the students super-talented - not just as musicians, but as savvy professionals that know the industry and how it works for (and against) them.  A fabulous opportunity, if one I'm well passed.  But still an absolute joy to share the collection with music students as they develop and share their talent.  Especially if it's to channel a bit of Kurt Cobain, with this beautiful sonic blue Jag-Stang from the first year of production, 1996.  I know Fender have just released a 30th anniversary version to mark the original release of Nevermind, but why spend a fortune, when you could hire a first-run original here? ;-)  If you want a touch of its magic yourself, see and hear more of it here.

1976 Gibson Thunderbird,

Tobacco Sunburst,
Peter Hook's 1976 Gibson Thunderbird bass, one mighty bird!  Bought in the early noughties, and played with electronic dance band Hybrid on release of their second album Morning Sci-Fi.  A glorious bass, all original, including the 76-inked bicentennial scratchplate!

Black
as made famous by Graham Coxon
Woo hoo!  You know the riff, now here's the guitar.  A 1974 Hayman 3030H, made famous by Graham Coxon on Blur's Song 2.  A classic British guitar from the Jim Burns bloodline - the Leo Fender of the UK.  Pleased to meet you!
1956 Gibson Les Paul Junior 3/4
1956 Gibson Les Paul Junior 3/4, 
Two Tone Sunburst, as made famous by Billie Joe Armstrong
Billie Joe's 1956 Les Paul Junior is the normal scale version, this one the student model.  But in every other respect, the perfect match for the guitar behind so many of Green Day's classics - and that P-90 just screams!
