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: Chris Longridge

I know, it's true and a little embarrassing, but I don't have any left-handed guitars for hire.  So it was some relief in May to have Chris Longridge hire this beautiful US 52 Vintage Telecaster.   Not only is Chris a talented artist (appearing in two seasons of Sky Arts' Portrait Artist Of The Year), but he's a left-handed guitarist who learnt to play on a right-handed guitar, by turning it upside down, without changing the order of the strings.  One of a rare breed of guitarist who have the innate talent to do this - Albert King, Dick Dale and Eric Gales, you have another brother!

I won't ever get to having a range of left-handed guitars to match the right-handed ones on offer, and I know that not every left-handed guitarist wants to play a right-handed guitar upside down, but I'm inspired enough by Chris' example to see what I can do to help you left-handers out over the coming months . . .

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!
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!
