Feedback From Our Hirers

Don't just take our word for it!  Here's what our hirers have to say about the God's Own Guitars experience.

"The guitar was perfect for what I needed, clearly very well looked after! Iain was really lovely and helpful, and also provided a little pack of any accessories that he thought might be useful. Will definitely come back to Iain if I need another guitar, and would recommend him to anybody else who might be looking to rent one!"

"Great guitar. Iain is a guitar expert. Very friendly and professional. Would recommend always!!"
Thanks to Emmanuel (aka King0fTheThrill) again! Loved the Strat so much, hired the 1996 Fender Jag-Stang as a follow-up :-).

"Iain is a guitar expert. Very good prices too!"
Modesty aside, I should use that as a marketing slogan ;-). Thanks to Emmanuel (aka King0fTheThrill) for the hire of our lovely 2006 Arctic White Strat!

"Very helpful and professional, would definitely recommend!"
Louis, bassist with Saints, after a full-day recording session with our vintage 1972 Fender Precision Bass.

"I have rented 4 guitars from Iain over the last 9 months as part of my return to the guitar (it had been 30 years). The issue for me was I didn’t know what guitar to buy. So I decided to rent and started with the Arctic White Strat, then the Tele, then the Gibson SG and finally the Les Paul Goldtop. Iain was there every step of the way, answering questions and helping out. I had a lot of fun, learned a lot and ended up buying a PRS MCarty largely given how much I liked the Les Paul Goldtop. For any of you out there thinking about guitar rental, God’s Own Guitars is a fantastic option."
Loved this project! Acting as concierge service, discussing needs, suggesting options, hiring on a "try before you buy" basis to help the ultimate buying decision. All with discounted rates for the longer term hires! If you fancy the same experience as Joe, just click the link!


"Absolutely amazing service. Received guitar on time and sparkling clean. Expert advice given as well."
Thanks to film director Tatenda Jamera for giving our sprightly 86-year-old National Style O Resonator a starring role in a video shoot for artist Tamaraebi.

"Iain is a pleasure to talk to; he is charming, polite and very knowledgeable regarding Guitars and Bass Guitars. I rented a well maintained Precision Bass, which came in a hard case with relevant accessories; I believe this was extremely great value for money. Playing the Precision Bass it was also clear to me that it had been well serviced and looked after. With Iain’s professionalism, value and great service I have no doubt that I will be a returning customer!"
14 tracks recorded in one day by rock bassist Rich Vanderpuije, armed with our vintage 1972 Fender Precision Bass. Mammoth session!

"Iain was terrific - picked up and not only was the guitar beautiful with not a scratch on it, but he also provided a brand new strap, picks and other bits to help us along. Honestly couldn't recommend highly enough, such a lovely person and will definitely be renting from him again."
Another video session for our most popular solidbody, the classic 1992 Fender Telecaster in perfectly photogenic metallic blue. Watch out for the video from Adam, aka DYVR!


"We hired the 1962 Fender Duo-Sonic and another guitar for part of our filming for a new BBC 2 series. Iain was so helpful and very accommodating with our plans as it was very last minute. The guitar was fantastic and in brilliant condition. Would highly recommend using Gods Own Guitars and if I ever needed to hire this sort of thing again, this company would be my first port of call."
Can't wait for the broadcast! Thanks to Rebecca and the team at Rumpus Media for hiring our 1962 Fender Duo-Sonic for this series!

"We hired the 2006 Fender Stratocaster and another guitar for part of our filming for a new BBC 2 series. Iain was really helpful and accommodating with our plans as it was very last minute. It was packed up really well and put on a direct courier for us with no issues at all and returned to him on the same day into the evening which was very helpful for our filming. I would high recommend using Iain and Gods Own Guitars and I would use them again!"

"Amazing Instrument. Rich said "one of the nicest guitars i've ever played". Great price and Iain was very helpful and polite."
The best feedback I could hope for! Engineer Chris Marsh, hiring our 1976 Fender Jazz Bass for a studio session with Rich Fry (solo, ex indie/ska punksters Mouthwash).

"Iain was great to deal with. Fast communication and punctual with the delivery. Great gear and a very friendly guy. I’ve no hesitation in recommending."
Singer-songwriter Rich Sice, hiring our 1972 Fender Prescision and 1976 Fender Jazz Bass for a weekend's home recording. Double Bass!


"Wonderful experience! Iain has a really incredible attention to detail, very helpful and easy going. Beautiful guitar condition and top class brands. Was a fantastic experience and I will definitely repeat!"
Singer-songwriter Angela after a weekend's home recording with our 2011 Fender Graham Coxon Telecaster.

"Iain has that rare quality of being extremely professional and wonderfully personable. His passion for beautiful guitars is infectious and his rates are fantastic! I had one of the best days of my recording career yesterday, sat in my studio playing his Gibson J200. A childhood dream come true. Legend!"
Jason Bavanandan, getting some lockdown home recording in, with our 1993 Gibson J-200 - still our most popular acoustic, and for good reason!

"Iain was very helpful and the vintage Bass was fantastic to play! Thanks for everything guys!"
