Now £1700 ONO
My cherished and much loved Gretsch Duo Jet here for sale. I'd love to keep it, but realistically it just doesn't get enough use to justify keeping hold of it as I mostly play bass now.
This a 2008 Japanese model with a rare '125th Anniversary' plate on the rear of the headstock, in near-mint condition. It is 10 years old so there are a few little micro-scrapes and buckle-rash on the varnish - though probably could mostly be buffed out. Only three real 'dings' shown on the last three photos - tiny chips where the varnish has come off. It's only been gigged once or twice as it has been used mostly as a home / studio guitar.
It honestly has the most playable neck I've come across and is far more versatile than just the normal Gretsch rockabilly / country niche, but if you're looking at this you probably know enough about the model itself. Suffice to say I wouldn't be moving it on if I didn't simply need the money.
I've owned this from new, bought from Fair Deal Music in Birmingham in 2009 after passing it in the shop window for a couple of months on the way to work and finally succumbing to temptation. It comes with official Gretsch hard case and all the official documentation / truss rod adjuster. Only thing I can't seem to find are the keys to lock the case.
Obviously this is an expensive item, if anyone wants to come around and try it please get in touch.
Epiphone Korina Explorer
Complete with EMG pickups. Sold to me, already fitted, as 81/85 but I’m not sure how to check this.
Only issues are missing volume knob and pickup selector switch can be temperamental going into bridge position.
Pretty clean, minor knocks. 9/10 I’d say
I’d like collection from Derby/ Notts area (can meet up)

Up for sale is my Cornford Hurricane, 22W all-valve guitar combo.
Most people reading this won't need telling about this amp. In case you do though, here's a link to a review:
Here's a link to some stock pictures of the amp - mine looks just the same!:
This is an early model dating from 2004 with a 3-digit serial number (actually it's four digits, but the first one is a zero). It's complete with the original footswitch and connection cable, and has a proprietary soft cover of a type that are easy to find on eBay.
Cosmetically it's in outstandingly good nick. I'm working from memory as I type this (the amp is at PMT for a full revalve and service) but I can't recall any blemishes on it at all. If anything does come to light when I get it back I will dutifully report it here.
It has led a pretty easy life (a small number of gigs plus the odd recording session, and it was my main amp in my teaching studio for a couple of years). Changed priorities and some medical issues mean that I no longer use it.
This is a great amp that has (and I know some people don't like reading this kind of thing, but) genuine rarity value. At this stage the asking price is pretty firm (but feel free to make offers ). For what I hope are obvious reasons I won't be posting this - collection at an agreed location is the only option I'm afraid. I live in the Birmingham area but can travel for a little bit of petrol money. The amp may be available before Christmas but probably best to assume not.
Any questions, feel free to ask.
