Fender and Gibson
We're unashamed fans of Fender and Gibson guitars. See if we have one for you.
We're mostly known for Guitars, but we do have a selection of tasty Amps. From vintage to ltd ed models.
I have been selling and buying vintage instruments for over 20 years both in Australia and Overseas. Anthony is by far one of the best I’ve ever encountered. His knowledge and understanding of where the vintage and modern day market sits is simply outstanding. I have now purchased and sold over a dozen instruments with The Colonel and every single transaction has been an absolute pleasure. Please don’t hesitate to purchase here folks! Anthony Lance is simply one of the greatest around!
Brought Amp on lay by: Had a chat with Anthony, worked out terms which were agreeable to us both, paid for Amp, Anthony did a excellent pack up job, sent to W.A. Arrived in the condition Anthony had stated both physically and tonally (Perfect) , Very Happy chap I am. Fair dinkum bloke he is.
Just completed my first guitar sale via consignment with the colonel. Previously, I have just done my selling privately but decided this time that I didn't have the time and energy for it. Anthony took really good care of me and the process was extremely smooth and painless. Thanks Colonel!

Guitar Of The Week.
A classic example of the ever elusive "closet find", this incredibly clean example of an original 1959 Les Paul Standard was brought to a dealer in Minnesota by its original owner where it was soon sold to a private collector. It wasn't long after that the guitar made waves through the vintage collector community as one of the more pristine original Bursts to re-appear out of obscurity. Now owned by Andrew Raymond of the UK, it remains a well cared-for and exceptional guitar with much of its original color intact, very little wear, and a top that exemplifies the word "flame": deep, moving, pronounced and consistent from side-to-side. "Minnesota Burst's" neck feel is beefy, with mid-'59 cheek and a substantial, playable feel that eases into your hand. For tone, its slightly off-balance pickups exhibit a unique mid-tone that's dark and sweet, while the highs cut through for clarity and the lows maintain that classic "woman tone" that barks beautifully with aggressive string attack and purrs when you back off.
