Iconic Guitars, Effects & Amps For Hire

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

From £5/day for guitars, and £4/day for amps and effects.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are open for hire - socially distanced handovers and returns in open spaces.  Just click the buttons below!

"God's Own" because the guitars we share are As Played By, As Owned By, or As 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.

And there are so many ways that our hirers put our guitars and gear to use, whether guitarists or non-guitarists:

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 In The Spotlight . . . Peter Daines

Sadly, I'm still not open for hires.  Which is a crying shame when so many of us are stuck indoors - a perfect time to practice, an even better time to try out something new.  But it looks a thought some limitations will be lifting soon, so contact-free hires are in sight!

Happily, I do have neighbours that have kindly taken on some of the guitars in the collection over the past few weeks.  So here's Peter Daines with some lovely vocals and slide work with our 1934 National Style O Resonator.  Takes you straight to the birthplace of the blues!  Peter and I have spent lockdown time putting on a weekly acoustic set for our neighbours - so if you want to see and hear more, check us out on Instagram

When the time comes, and it will, I'll be hiring again.  If you want to book something in advance, just the Hire A Guitar button today! 

Latest Additions

Each of our guitars is carefully researched & selected to meet the criteria of "As Played By", "As Owned By", or "As Made Famous By".  This is not a bulk-buy business.  We buy selectively and only as the right guitars come up.  But that's the only limitation, and the collection continues to grow.

White,
as made famous by John Lennon
A rare piece of space-age technical genius, the Vox V251 Guitar Organ, a prototype handed to John Lennon, and famous more for its 2014 $305K auction price than him ever playing it.  Makes the $87.5K that David Gilmour's sold for in 2019 seem like a snip at the price...

1972-75 Epiphone EA-250, Cherry,
as made famous by Robert Smith and Noel Gallagher
From Hot, Hot, Hot to Supersonic.  From last to first.  As played by Robert Smith on last ever The Tube, and by Noel Gallagher on Oasis debut single, Supersonic.  One of the very first Japanese Epiphones, the iconic and eye-catching EA-250.
1969 Gibson EB-3 Bass Jack Bruce
1969 Gibson EB-3 Bass Guitar,
Translucent Cherry,
as made famous by Jack Bruce
Famous in the hands of Jack Bruce during the height (and Goodbye) of the Cream years, and favoured by any of the big name bass players of the sixties, a hugely versatile and iconic classic.  Bask in the Sunshine Of Your Love.
