James Millman / JM28 / 2015 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Based in Devon, and having studied under Brook guitars, James Millman is fast gaining a reputation as an outstanding British luthier. His guitars have a very natural feel to them, traditionally built using hand tools and minimal jigs. Wherever possible he uses local, native and reclaimed timbers, and all his guitars are finished with a hand rubbed, organic oil finish and French polish. This example features a Spruce top with Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides, the fingerboard and bridge are Ebony, and a Mahogany soundhole rosette is a classy touch. Tonally the guitar has great clarity, single note separation and sustain. It fingerpicks very evenly with great balance, and as a strummer it has a dynamic punch. The guitar has a genuine hand made feel, the tone and playability of which is excellent. The guitar comes in it’s original 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.
