• Stella Acoustic Parlour Guitar by Harmony - 1965 vintage.

    It is my understanding that these guitars were made from solid birch, I believe Birch is one of the few woods that can be used as a single thin layer, no ply here. 12 frets to the neck, I used it for slide and it is a guitar with a stunning tone, quite unique, a rich deep full round long lasting tone due in the main to that solid birch construction and ladder braced for that old Chicago Blues parlour guitar sound.

  • Hummingbird acoustic guitar by BM VIGO: early MIJ

    Early MIJ that plays fast and easy. A Hummingbird copy by BM VIGO. I have biased the spacing to increase the gap between the bass strings and slightly reduce it between the thin treble strings. because your fingers reach further across the guitar to get to the bass strings and land on the wider pad of the finger not the narrow tip.

  • Vintage Ibanez V300 Acoustic Guitar..made In Japan

    A Lovely,well played, all round acoustic,fairly low string action great for picking and rhythm..Mahogany body and neck, Spruce soundboard. I'm pretty sure this instrument dates from the second half of the 1970's.. There are a few age related scratches and dings and the fingerboard shows signs of wear as do the frets on treble side 1st 7 frets. I must also point out that the headstock had a repair done to it about 3 or 4 years ago, it is visible in pictures but has had no effect to the playability, sound or general robustness of the guitar. There isn't a case with it but will be packaged well..Mainland UK shipping only..Thanks for looking.

Vintage acoustic guitars with retro charm

Vintage guitars bring a nostalgia like no other. Elegant and with a warm, distinct sound, they are usually thirty or more years old and are sought after instruments, lovingly maintained by avid musicians and collectors. However, it's not just age that defines a guitar as vintage. It's also a term which is often applied to guitars which are infamous for a particular sound, or simply because they're so rare.

Seemingly when it comes to these guitars there are so many out there, all of which are different prices and specifications, and virtually no two are the same. So why not have a good look through the enormous variety on offer all in one place on eBay today and fall in love with the exact one you've been looking for.

Vintage electric guitars

Fenix guitars were, and are, a particularly popular range of instruments from the late 1970s and 80s. They are often considered to have a better build quality and sound than other vintage guitars made at the same time, particularly the less expensive models from South Korea. Alder wood was used rather than plywood which allows for a truly stunning tone and superb look.

Vintage Höfner acoustic guitars

The 'Selmer' guitars by Höfner were given serial numbers during their distribution throughout Europe in the 1970s. Generally speaking, if you can't find a serial number on an older vintage model then it's not a 'Selmer' model. The Hofner Committee Brunette 1960/61 is an outstanding acoustic guitar from the brand, offering a warm, distinctive tone. Made from solid carved spruce and with beautiful birdseye maple back and sides, it also boasts marbled binding and a plain clear perspex scratchplate.

Antique guitars

Dating from around the start of the 20th century, antique guitars are incredibly intriguing and often very beautiful. Many of these very old acoustic models have a particularly small body and due to their rarity are now very expensive. Often with marks and scratches each of which tells a story, antique guitars are generally the reserve of the keenest collectors and are more for looking at than actually playing.
