GJ Guitars

GJ guitars started out when, around 30 odd years ago, I fancied a “Tele” but couldn’t afford one, so I decided to try and make one.I had been working in a local timber yard and managed to get a hold of some pieces of wood. After about 8 months my 001 “Tele” was created.    

Some clients were keeping up to date with the progress and when the finished article finally came about, asked me if I could make something for them. A body, a neck etc. The next thing I knew I was up to # 6, a black “Strat” style with DiMarzio blues pickups. This guitar I kept for about 6 years, until someone offered me a absurd price, it is an amazing product but the money was worth it, she even came with the wireless microphone system for recording purposes, so great for any musician.

The next guitar I kept, was #19, another “Strat” style with a quilted maple top, Gotoh roller bridge, DiMarzio’s etc.  It played and sounded like like a dream, it was sold in 2015 after 10 years of excellent service, and that’s how started in the business learning from other shops online such as Music Critic where you can also find guitars and other instruments, but I focused on guitars and nothing else.

My newest “Strat” is #72, which is a swamp ash body, finished in red with a maple/ rosewood neck, DiMarzio’s and a Roland GK-3. 

From time to time the worst can happen and a body or neck can get damaged. Sometimes if not fully repairable these guitars are sold for a knock down price.  A great bargain to be had by all.

Any Questions ?, Interested?, Just give me a call.
