Gretsch / Rancher Penguin Parlour G5021WPE / 2020 / White / Guitar
I know guitars shouldn’t be all about the looks, but this Gretsch Penguin parlour guitar may be the exception - it’s just fantastic. The finishing touches of gold sparkle neck and body binding, thumbnail fingerboard inlays, a gold plexi pickguard, and “vertical wing” Gretsch headstock logo, all add up to one of the most refreshingly different guitars I’ve seen in quite a while. But Gretsch haven’t just stopped there, they’ve put a solid Sitka Spruce top on a Maple body, with scalloped bracing, so the guitar really packs a punch. Added to that is a Fishman Isys III pickup system, and this guitar is stage ready, as well as a cracking couch guitar. It works really well for fingerstyle play, but also strums surprisingly well for it’s size. This example is in virtually unplayed condition, and even comes in an upgraded deluxe Gretsch branded hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
