Acoustic Guitars

Sometimes there is nothing better than going ‘unplugged’. Here at Modern Guitars we don’t only buy and sell electric guitars. From late Victorian Parlour guitars through Dreadnoughts, Resonators and Concert instruments we do buy and sell all types of acoustic instruments. We especially like Martin, Taylor, Gibson, Collings and U.K. builders such as Lowden, Fylde and Patrick Eggle. Check out our stock below.

1965 Gibson B15 Acoustic Guitar ex John Hiatt vgc £850

I personally really like this little Gibson Acoustic.  The B15 was Gibson cashing in on the Mid-1960’s folk boom with a “cheap” guitar made with Melody Maker necks.  This is in very good condition but has been extensively played by its previous owners. One of the owners I understand was American singer songwriter John Hiatt. […]

1978 Martin D35 ex 10cc – £2750

A wonderful tonal guitar – a typical Martin Dreadnought if there is such a thing. Superb build quality and everything that a Martin should be with Rosewood back and sides. Two colour that suggests some Brazilian and Indian there. It had been in its case from the mid 1980’s until 2002 when we bought it. The strings were rusty and the guitar needed a complete strip down clean up and pro set up. Since then it has really turned into a superb sounding Martin guitar with an amazing tone. This guitar had been previously owned by one of 10cc’s guitar roadies and we were told it was used on one of their early recordings! A fantastic vintage Martin with original case and the Martin owners leaflet in there.
