About Great Vintage Items

A passion for vintage instruments.

Since early 2015, we have expanded our range a little and now offer Vintage and Re-Issue guitars. We also offer a few other interesting instruments, amps and effects, providing they are vintage.

So that we can offer our instruments at great prices, our sales are made online. But customers are always welcome to come and try them. Alternatively, if we happen to be going in your direction, we will bring the instrument to you.

If you’re planning a visit, please make an appointment before you come. We aren’t always in! We could be out valuing guitars, delivering an instrument, doing a swap, or we could just be chilling!

Happy buyers in a year.

Apart from the fact that we have some great vintage items, here are 6 Reasons for us to meet up:


Clients become friends

Integrity is everything to us. Because we treat people in a way that we would like to be treated, our customers see us as a friend in the industry.

We're 100% Independent

Independence brings freedom. We can make decisions that make sense, rather than follow the company rules.

We love what we do

If we didn’t enjoy what we do, we don’t have to do it. Instruments are part of the entertainment business and we see Great Vintage Items as part of that.

We're diligent

Our instrument preparation and descriptions are straightforward. Everything is checked and carefully described so that you can have the confidence to buy without seeing it first.


We're good at searching

Many of our customers have a particular instrument in mind for their next purchase. We are offered in the region of 50 instruments a week. We keep a list of your desires. If one is offered to us, we will let you know.


It's a hobby to us

This all started as a hobby and we want to keep that same level of interest in it for our own benefit. Consequently, we are always searching for interesting instruments to add to our knowledge.

Until we advertise our latest instrument.

We are Great Vintage Items

This is our very small team (well when we say team, we mean “person”!)

What are clients say about us

  • Whatever did I do to deserve such a quality guitar at such a silly price. I feel very guilty and very grateful. Your description of the guitar was so very honest, and your packaging deserves an award of some sort. I am delighted my friend.
