Welcome to Modern Guitars

Welcome to Modern Guitars! We first started buying and selling guitars in the late 1990’s and the business was set up in 2003. First and foremost we are fans of vintage and high quality guitars and are dedicated to offering the highest quality Guitars, Basses, Amplifiers and Effects pedals from before the 1950’s through to the present day. We buy, sell and trade; appraise collections or individual instruments, handle escrow and arrange private sales on behalf of clients. We are also consultants to the insurance and loss industry providing valuations and a forensic loss advice service – all related to vintage and high value guitars. We also offer a ‘plug into your own rig’ service to bona fide established bands visiting our local area, where we are happy to bring a particular guitar or bass to you at a mutually convenient venue.

We seek to trade with honesty and integrity and offer accurate descriptions and detailed photos on all items listed on this site. To hand part by part descriptions are always available by email or phone. Please call to speak to our low-pressure sales staff (me Dave) anytime on 07895355482.
