John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd. the worldwide trade distributors of Vintage® brand instruments is proud to announce the launch of the Vintage Gordon Giltrap Signature electro acoustic guitar.

Highly regarded as one of the worlds greatest guitar players, Gordon has been at the forefront of acoustic guitar playing since the late 1960’s and has released more than thirty albums in his four decades in the music business.

Designed in conjunction with respected master luthier Rob Armstrong and Gordon himself, this crossover Grand Auditorium/000 style Vintage electro-acoustic is based on a hand-crafted instrument that Rob made back in 1980 and Gordon plays today. Featuring a high grade solid North American cedar top, with mahogany back and sides the signature “small waist” body is complemented by Rob Armstrong’s trademark headstock design.

I have played many great guitars in my years in the business and this one ranks alongside some of the very best,” says Gordon when asked about his new signature model, “it is an outstanding guitar by anybody’s standards and at any price. My original guitar has a very strong treble with a sort of springy and expressive sound to the bass end, the new Vintage guitar has all of this combined with an overall warmth and balance to its tonality.”
