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: Nikola Zbiljic

This is how bands begin!  Just love this.  Nikola meets some friends at college, turns out some of them are musicians, they book a rehearsal studio, a 12-bar blues breaks out and the magic - and the smiles - begin.  Just like it happens for so many bands when they start.  Johnny Marr remembers the first rehearsals of The Smiths in exactly the same way: "When we started playing the first song, which was ‘Handsome Devil’, it sounded so good to us that we did what every other band does in that situation: we started to laugh.  It’s a fantastic truth and a profound irony that the very first thing The Smiths did when they got together was to start laughing uncontrollably.”  The start of greatness.

There's the magic, and there's that 1992 Telecaster in Metallic Blue again.  One of the most popular hires, it gives you everything you need, whether your first session or your umpteenth gig - classic Tele tones on a maple board.  If you want to give it a go, just click here, and get ready to smile!

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!
1988 Gibson ES-335 Dot, 60 Reissue
1988 Gibson ES-335 Dot
Cherry Red
as made famous by everyone!
The ES-335, a classic icon, seen in the hands of so many of the guitar greats ever since it was first introduced in 1958.  This cherry beauty from 1988 takes you right back to the same design as the original dot inlay ES-335s, before the block inlay version came in in 1962.  A timeless classic!
1975 Gibson Marauder
1975 Gibson Marauder, 
Natural Satin, 
as made famous by Thurston Moore
It's not just Jazzmasters and Jaguars for Thurston Moore.  But it's always going to be something edgy.  And Gibson's Marauder with its Flying V headstock, plate-mounted controls, and humbucker/single coil combination ticks all the boxes.
