Hirer Feedback

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

"Lovely guitar at a surprisingly reasonable price. Really felt this added a touch of class to our gig. Plus Iain's a friendly helpful guy. Thoroughly recommended. First choice any time I need to hire a guitar or amp in future."

Chris and his band Skylarks were on the line-up at Clapham's Bread & Roses, and needed the real-deal for a cover of Mr Tambourine Man (and other jangly classics!). It could only be the Rickenbacker 330/12!

"Iain was such a lovely person. Very kind and understanding and equipment had no faults!"

Rising star Tianna, playing a listening party to launch her debut EP. The centre of attention was rightfully Tianna! But very happy to help her with a classic Fender Champion for her guitarist on the night.

"Rented the guitar for a few days and delivery and drop off was quick. He was also very responsive which is great when you’re traveling and sometimes plans change by the hour! Would definitely recommend to any musician in need of gear."

US singer/songwriter Christina Li making the most of her time in the UK with Alex Trimble's ever-popular Little Martin. Great tone for such a small guitar - but that's Martin guitars for you!

"Hired this guitar for my friend and bandmate's birthday show. It was a real hit and a delight to play. It sounded wonderful. Iain was also great to deal with. I look forward to hiring from him again. "

If you're hiring for a birthday gig, nothing better than a Les Paul Goldtop. I don't know who the birthday boy was, but he's got a special friend in Nathan who arranged the hire!

"We hired this d35 for a recording session over two weeks and none of the players could put it down. A formidable instrument with incredibly accurate intonation all the way up the neck, rich even tone, and bright sparkling harmonics. Versatile, beautiful and a real pleasure to play. Highly recommended."

The first hire for the 1988 Martin D-35P, and a very special one - at legendary Sawmills Studio in Cornwall. Thanks to producer Moses van den Bogaerde for the hire - and to singer/songwriter Ash Radford for playing this on pretty much every track on his upcoming album! It's hard to put down!

"Very quick to respond to messages, even answering a phone call in the evening to deal with my enquiry. Excellent prices and great equipment, 100% recommend them. Will certainly hire from GOG again :)"

A Boss Harmonist doesn't just work for guitars. Hirer Adrien had a lot of fun with it for some vocal acrobatics at a recent show. A choir at your fingertips . . .

"Pro gear and great service. I used this beautiful Gibson Hummingbird for a 10 day tour of England. Iain delivered the guitar, along with a great gig bag and a stand. At the end of the tour, he met me at a convenient spot in London for the return. Can’t say I know of anyone else in the world that provides such a service. I’ll definitely be using Gods Own Guitars the next time around."

Honestly, US singer/songwriter Kevin Galloway saw more of England in his 10 day tour than I do in a year! Lovely man, lovely voice and songs. Kitted him out with a Gibson Hummingbird, 62 Reissue Jazzmaster and a vintage Fender Champ for the tour, If no-one else in the world is providing this service, then it's a bit of luck Kevin was touring England ;-).

"I am very grateful for the outstanding service, exceptional communication and a wonderful guitar. The Yamaha LA-8 was a great instrument for our worship leader who flew in from the States. Thanks Iain for your help!"

Thanks to Jeremy for hiring the ever-versatile Yamaha LA-8. God's Own Guitars finally lives up to its name ;-).

"I only rented a guitar for one day, but, well...it made my day! The guitar was great, but the best thing was the service provided by Iain: flexibility, attention to detail, and a real human touch. Thank you 😊"

Max hired the Little Martin for just a few hours, but those few hours were enough for a special occasion, perfectly executed. The little things go a long way ;-).

"Thanks for the hire Iain! Hired both the Gibson J200 and Graham Coxon Telecaster. Both sounded fantastic on the new album I'm recording. I even asked where I can get a Telecaster that sounds like that for myself! Iain is fantastic and the process was professional and easy. Should I need more guitars I'll definitely be using GodsOwnGuitars again. Thanks Iain! Jamie."

A generous sprinkling of X-Factor fairy-dust for the 1993 J-200 and 2011 Coxon Telecaster. 2009 X-Factor contestant Jamie Archer, not only a very lovely man, but also still going strong with his music, in the studio with these two beauties. Everyone loves that J-200, but it's that Coxon Tele that delivers the surprise wow factor!

"Guitar was really well set up, kit with stand etc was very useful. Collection and return was very easy. Had lots of fun with the Rickenbacker. Iain was amazing, will hopefully hire again! Will recommend to everyone."

A very special 60th birthday present for Andrew from his partner Joanna - a week with a Rickenbacker 330/12 in glorious Fireglo finish. A guitar he's wanted to play for many years. Loved every second of it!

2022

"Thank you Iain! The SJ-200 was the perfect guitar for our concert event. I was pleased with the sound and playability and surprised how good it all sounded with the sound-hole pickup. You made everything as easy as can be and I am sure to hire again if I have the chance."

When the Professor Of Music at Brandeis University gets in touch to hire a guitar, you're going to be a bit nervous about whether the guitar is going to make the grade . . . but I should have had faith. The "100 Years" J-200 absolutely did the job. Many thanks to US professor and composer Eric Chasalow for the hire - and the trust!

"Iain was amazing and helped us out of a hole at the last minute when we were let down by another rental company. He was brilliant to deal with and everything was very straight forward. I can't recommend him highly enough and the Gibson Les Paul Goldtop sounded amazing! We won't be using anyone else but Iain moving forwards!"

When your party band flies in all the way from the US, but your expected guitar doesn't show up . . . A pleasure to help Sara-Jane out at short notice with the utterly classic 1996 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop. Always does the job!

2022

"Iain is great! From start to finish the service was smooth, efficient and friendly. We wouldn't look anywhere else to hire a guitar moving forwards. Highly recommend."

Once again, a Yamaha punches above its weight. This time the 12-String FG-411 featuring in an orchestral studio recording with multi-instrumentalist jazz musician Nala Sinephro. A real honour!

2022

"Iain was FANTASTIC. Incredibly knowledgeable and hugely helpful. I can't imagine ever going to anyone else now!"

Steve wanted to create a 70s era ska video and needed the gear to match. A great project to work on, and think we ended up with a good line-up - a 72 P-Bass, US Vintage Telecaster, backed up by a couple of vintage amps. Looking forward to seeing the video!
