Company information

Classic and Cool Guitars was set up to offer good quality vintage and unusual guitars and basses at fair prices. I've been a keen collector myself for a good few years.

Many of the guitars (especially Fenders) are sourced from the USA, where the choice is much larger than here in the UK, and it is possible to find some excellent examples.

I play bass in a local band and will often gig with one of the basses offered for sale on this site, to make sure it really plays and performs well and is nicely set up. Regarding set ups, this is quite a personal choice and of course will depend again on the individual instrument and the style of music played. I tend to set up basses as I like them – a low action but not so low that you get a “click” from the string hitting the frets higher up the neck when playing enthusiastically!

If you would like to see more photographs of a particular guitar, have any questions regarding any instruments on this site, or if you have an interesting instrument you wish to sell, please call or email me to discuss. Viewings by appointment only.
