I was try to check out the prices of Framus Star-Bass, one of which I spotted for £300 recently. It's such a lovely looking guitar (later played by Bill Wyman), I wanna have it! I also own a Broadway guitar like the first one you picture, but it has twin pick-ups so maybe a later model? Love your pages though! So hard to get decent photos of great vintage guitars.

Cheers Paul. P.S. if you come across a Peavey T60, natural finish, give me a shout please, I lost mine years ago at Waterloo station, some git pinched it!!!

I have the body & neck of an old guitar which Guy tells me is 1960's Egmond. No scratchplate or electrics.
If anyone is interested in re-building it they can contact me for some pictures. It will be free to a good home!

I had a Freshman 5800 back in the 80's, but mine had a maple neck. Neck was bent, it was unplayable, surprised it didn't put me off playing the guitar. Cost me £18.00 in about 82. It amazes me the price of these "budget" brands now on ebay. When they were new they were rubbish, now they are just old rubbish ;-) but fascinating for those of us who tried to learn on them. All the best, Paul

Dear Guy,

Many congratulations on your updated site, it really is an excellent means of sharing your passion with the world!!.
Having seen your guitars on the BBC’s Antiques Road Show and in person, I must say collection is fabulous.
I have been pondering my favourite and it is difficult to say but I think it has to be the Dallas Tuxedo AKA ‘Tux’, but the Vox Shadow and Vox White (red!!) Shadow and Fender Jaguar Mustang are all close seconds. I also admire the Shergold PD Custom due to its striking colour. I better not forget to mention the Bruno ‘Vernon’ if not only at least for its it excellent name!!

I look forward to seeing you and the collection again at Christmas.
Best Wishes, Scott.

Hi Guy - first of all congratulations on such a wonderful collection and for setting up the website - fantastic.

Secondly, a massive thanks to yourself and Paul Day for your kind assistance in helping me to identify and date my Shaftesbury model "65" Hollow Body (Thinline 'T' type) guitar. Much appreciated! I'll send you a piccy or two when the restoration is complete. And no, sadly my Dad no longer has his Framus Star Bass - I wonder where it is now?!

No doubt I'll be clicking my way back here quite often - keep up the good work.

Best regards - Pete

I've been trying to identify a guitar I bought in a pawn shop over 2 years ago. It was obviously a mid-sixties Japanese copy of a Jaguar but with NOTHING on the headstock that would help me identify it. Thanks to this wonderful website of your guitar collection I now know that it is a 4 pick-up version of your "Bruno
Vernon". THANK YOU !

Guy has really got the knowledge! i asked him about a guitar with a plate made by Bendix on it, made in the 60's and which i got 20 years ago. it totally flummoxed him and Paul, but even then they still knew more about it than anyone else on the net!! this kind of site is not only entertaining, but a facinating source of info too. wonderful stuff!

Hello Guy,
I have been trying to find information about a guitar called a COMMODORE which I purchased in 1970. It was Japanease and had the look of a Burns about it. A fellow band member brought a Commodore which resembled a 335. I can find no info about this company and wondered if you had heard of them and what happened to them?

Hi guy, you've made yet another sad old rocker wipe away tears of 70's nostalgia, but as we all know, your first great guitar in your first great band is like your first true love, you never forget! Fortunately for everyone, no recordings exist to shatter the illusion!
I wonder if you could help. I've been trying to get hold of a red Hofner 172 exactly like the one shown on your site. Tragically I missed one for £175 recently. Do you ever come across them or know anywhere I can contact. This must be done with utmost secrecy as darling wife would wrap it around my head and set fire to the others if she found out. I'm trying to think of a way of pitching the idea as a sound investment for the children's future? Any suggestions appreciated!
Many thanks, John

Its good to see the collection featured in the latest Guitar & Bass magazine.
If anyone out there fancies rebuilding an Audition semi acoustic - which Guy tells me is from around 1970 - they must contact me. Free to a good home but it needs a lot of work. I can send some pictures on request.

Hi, I'm Ake from Sweden. I am really impressed by this guitarcollectors site.
So many fine instruments. I would like to thank you Guy for all the great information regarding my odd Japanesee guitars from the 60's. I would also like to express my content about the work of Paul Day as he found the very most valuable information about my guitars. I immediately ordered his book: "The ultimate guitar book".

I was amazed to find a web site containing a guitar that I had great affection for in the 1960s - the Hagstrom Futurama Coronado Automatic. I traded it in against a Burns Short scale Jazz and my Bird amp against a Vox . . . if only!
