Guitars Plus have two fantastic examples of Gibson's premier Les Paul model to offer. At the top is a 1983 Custom with a factory fitted Kahler (branded Gibson) vibrato system fitted. One owner since about 1988 and now 30 years old, this 1980s iconic guitar has been serviced and set up and ready for a new home. Works incredibly well and would suit a covers band or a metal player that wants the fat creamy found associated with this kind of guitar but would like the shimmer available with some kind of bar. All original bar the Framptonesque cream pickup surrounds we have fitted, black are now in stock and we can fit these if desired. The other is a Cherry three pickup example from 1976. Both on sale now!!
From Left to right, Jimmy Page Gibson,, Edwards Les Paul from Japan, and a very cool Dark Fire that the shop has recently sold. Always let us know if you seek something special - you'd be amazed at the amount of guitars the store sells that never go on our site.
Real and Unreal - a real USA Rickenbacker 360 12- mid nineties on the left, and on the right - Unreal pricing on these Tokai built 'Rebelrocker' electric 12st.
Guitars Plus is 30 years this year (8th November 1982 we opened as Musical Repair & Trading Co.) Chris Voce and Ross Nicol along with Ray Luckhurst a friend of Chris's also from London, started it all up and changed the name in about 1991 to Guitars Plus. Arriva Derci Ross - who is returning to his native New Zealand later this year, it will be the passing of an era when Abbey Sound shuts its doors soon. This is a shot of Chris playing his Edwards Strat (an Eric Clapton Blackie copy), thanks to Mark Miller for this one at a Two Dogs gig, Mark has been a loyal customer for manya year, and is currently selling off a few of his well chosen instruments. If you would like a list of items for sale cotact us by email and we'll send you an itemised list with prices and condition etc. Chris and Ross played in the Davey Bros band back in the eighties when this business was established, and Chris continues to gig around the Bayside area today, together with John Benfield, John worked for Roland in the 1980s and was the first rep to visit our store. I can't remember the first guitar we sold, but I can remember the first Gibson - a 1975 Les Paul Special, and the first Fender was a 1968 Candy Apple Red Strat. Thanks to all our many local - and not so local - regular clients and customers, and there isn't a day goes by without meeting a new customer, with a guitar problem, or to come and buy one. We have three generations of customers in the one family around this neck of the woods 30 years is a long time, so our appreciation goes out to all of you. Thanks too to all our many suppliers over the years, especially Sid West, Lamberti Brothers, Jade Sound and Maton Guitars. Thanks to one and all,
