Our "British Masters" series guitars

Escalating prices of the USA makers' guitars from the golden era make vintage instruments out of reach for many of us. This is where 42nd street guitars can help.

Our custom-built "British Masters" series capture the essence of these great guitars. We use hand-selected premium timbers, apply nitrocellulose finishes - often with "colour under" base coats - which are then faded and aged with tobacco staining. We use only high-quality hardware, aged appropriately, and superb pickups from UK makers Bare Knuckle - wired up with all the best electronics. We level the frets and roll the fingerboard edges on all our necks which gives an instantly comfortable feel.

A lot of effort has gone into creating these instruments which we have developed from our 30 plus years experience in vintage restorations and re-finishing. The work is completed in our dedicated workshops here in the UK.

Alongside the completed guitars,  we also offer "vintage build kits" featuring the same level of quality and detail. Bodies and necks are also available separately, if required.

All things are possible at 42nd Street. Got your own ideas? Let us know, as we are always happy to help with your dream guitar or project.
