Hirer Feedback

Don't take my word for it.  This is what matters most!

"Great service. I needed a bass fast, Iain sorted me out. Met me at the station for collection and drop off. Very professional. Deposit returned promptly. Very satisfied, highly recommended and will be my first port of call next time. Thanks, Iain."

Great to have the vintage 76 Jazz Bass out for a big band open-air gig. Thanks very much to Ger for the hire.

"Great guitar - low action, flat fretboard …just great to play lead with. Tone was rich and full. Would definately be interested in expanding my relationship with Ibanez."

Just how it should be - try before you buy! Thanks to Joe for taking on the 1976 Ibanez Destroyer. A killer guitar, and the start of a new relationship!

"Iain is a very friendly and flexible bloke, provided us a great little amp for a gig at my birthday - 10/10 would use again. Thanks."

If you've got a big milestone birthday coming up and want to relive part of your younger days, there's no better plan than putting on a gig. Which is exactly what Freddie did for his 30th, bringing a classic noughties Marshall amp into the backline. Days of glory!

"I have hired last minute this vintage guitar for one our VIP guest. Communication with Iain was very seamless and paper work are very clear. Guest was so happy with the guitar and loved it. Guest even post playing the guitar in the Instagram. Highly recommended."

Thanks to concierge Mario at Nobu Portman Square for arranging the hire of the vintage Martin D-28. I'm still intrigued to know who that mystery VIP guest is, but full respect to Mario for maintaining guest confidentiality!

"Great gear and top guy. Iain is doing great things for London music!"

Thanks to Pete for hiring the Arctic White Strat and Fender Champion 110 for some demos with his band. Honestly, it's the musicians that hire that are doing great things for music, but I'm flattered and honoured to play a small part!

"Iain is always so good at responding even very last minute! He really saved us for our last tour!"

Great to hire to Tummyache's Soren Bryce once again. One of the hardest working bands I know, and a tip for the top! A repeat hire for the 2000 Marshall G-30R amp. It may be small, but it's very mighty!

"Wow! Amazing guitar!! Thanks to Iain! Great job - great guitars.🔥🔥🔥Great Service. Yeah!"

It's that Arctic White Strat working its magic again! Visiting from Germany, Michael loved it so much, I found him still playing it when we met for the return, entertaining the passersby at London's Victoria Station! Rock N Roll :-)

"After Iain saved the day with a Gibson Hummingbird for Kyle Daniel (after BA damaged his own guitar), Shy Carter from Nashville requested a Stratocaster for his band's performance at the Nashville Meets London Festival. This Black Strat was the answer so much so that Shy's guitarist Adam wanted to keep the guitar. Iain is a pleasure to work with and his overall service and care of the guitars is excellent. Look no further than God's Own Guitars!"

The second of two hires for the 2022 Nashville Meets London festival - and thanks again to Peter Conway Management for the trust. This time a 70s Black Strat for Adam, guitarist with headline star Shy Baldwin. Loved it so much, he wanted to take it home with him!

"Iain is the man! Prompt, professional and came through in a pinch when my guitar was broken on the way to London on this last tour. This Gibson Hummingbird played like a DREAM! Iain made sure that the guitar was set up properly, as I play a half step down with a lot of capo songs, so it’s very easy to hear when the guitar hasn’t been cared for. I can tell you first hand that Iain knows exactly what he’s doing when setting up a guitar! I will absolutely be using him for any needs moving forward!!! Thanks for saving the day!!!"

Couldn't be happier to help out US country star Kyle Daniel in his hour of need - the opening show of the 2022 Nashville Meets London festival went without a hitch, with the 2006 Gibson Hummingbird doing everything it needed to do. Not only a country star, but a lovely man too!

"Iain is now my 'go-to' person if I need a guitar to hire. Singer Kyle Daniel from Nashville arrived in the UK with a damaged guitar courtesy of BA. One call to Iain resolved our pressing need for a similar guitar so Kyle could perform that night in London. A beautiful guitar with a great sound - loved by Kyle! And Iain is easy to deal with, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. A real find!"

When the worst possible thing happens . . . US country star Kyle Daniel arrived in the UK only to find the neck had broken in transit on his vintage Gibson. Thanks to global music management and promotions company Peter Conway Management for picking up the Bat-Phone and getting a lovely Gibson Hummingbird into Kyle's hands for the opening night of the 2022 Nashville Meets London festival. Privileged to be able to help!

"Had the best experience with Iain! Guitar and all the accessories were in perfect condition and and came with instructions which were very helpful, so much attention to details and you could see he’s a pro when it comes to his instruments and how much care he puts into it. It was my first time hiring a guitar for my 11yeat-old son and we couldn’t be happier, will definitely use Iain’s services again. Thank you for your encouragement and help!"

A future guitar god in the making - no better way to do it than with a vintage Gibson Flying V'90 in glorious Nuclear Yellow!

"Had an amazing hire experience with Iain. His communication was timely and to the point, you can really tell he has been doing this for a while as he thought of all the little details and made the process super easy. We had one happy teenager with a very special guitar. Everything was packed nicely and had few extra bits that one would need. Thank you Iain! Will use your services again."

If there's one guitar that's going to put a smile on a teenager's face, it's a Nuclear Yellow Flying V :-). One pick-up, 24 frets, Steinberger whammy, super-low action, no regrets. School holiday activities, done!

"Iain was such a pleasure communicating with and so accommodating with the rental. Guitar was in performance condition, great and incredibly cared for collection. Best service in london! Would recommend 100/10."

Just great to be able to help out Nashville/LA singer-songwriter Austin Max on the London leg of his European tour in August. Check out the video in the link to hear a Ricky at its mellowest, beautifully played!

"Rental was very easy and the guitar was absolutely beautiful with brand new strings. Iain was really easy to communicate with, friendly and helpful. Will definitely hire from him again!"

Self-proclaimed Beatles-nerd Obadiah wanted to recreate a particular chord that introduces a famous song by The Beatles. I'll leave you to guess which one! For the chord, it had to be the 1989 Rickenbacker 330/12, all that ringing tone to bring in an instantly recognisable song . . . podcast to follow!

"All perfect, definitely recommended."

Italian jazz guitarist Lorenzo Morresi flew to London to record a session at Jazz FM, on the back of them naming latest release "Cosmica Italiana" their Album Of The Week. It may be a simple Mexican Tele, but the 1992 always delivers - even as a jazz guitar!
