We always keep a good stock of electric guitars here at Forsyths including probably the best selection of new Rickenbacker electric guitars on show in the country. We are also the sole distributor for Gordon Smith guitars in the North West, which is good as they are practically made in our back yard. To view the entire range of a particular brand, please choose from the menu on the left. The following are some that we've picked out for your delectation.
A faithful reproduction of the original Rickenbacker 360 12-string. The 2nd one ever made was presented to George Harrison in 1963 and immortalized in 'A Hard Day's Night'. It sounds fantastic, it (obviously) looks great, and the feel and playability do the job nicely. One other thing - even unplugged this thing sounds amazing, obviously not what it was...
A modern update of the model 325 - made famous by a certain John Lennon. This has all the looks and style of the original but with a hardtail and full scale length removes the annoying quirks of the 325. This is the first time this model has been available in the UK in fireglo!
Made in China in the early 2000s, this all solid wood guitar has a floating Kent Armstrong pickup and comes with the original hard case.
A 7 string archtop semi-acoustic guitar with a venetian cutaway and a Kent Armstrong HJGS7-GD humbucking pickup.
Handmade in Bavaria, this environmentally sound model has almost no plastic parts. A maple and walnut construction, the guitar comes with a Winter hard case.
A fantastic Otto D'Ambrosio signature design of this incredibly light Eastman. Not only is it a looker, it also sounds fantastic with Kent Armstrong HPAG-1G pickups. Comes with a hardcase.
A single cut Les Paul Standard clone, made in the Czech republic with hand wound Cross Point humbuckers. Comes with a hardcase - the hard rocking is down to you.
Made in the USA circa 1965, with all original parts and finish. A single Hilotron pickup on the neck position gives you a lovely clean tone, and this guitar comes with a non-original hard case.
A Canadian made chambered body electro-acoustic guitar for stage use with an integrated MIDI synth controller output. The guitar has dual piezo and magnetic (lipstick tube) pickups. Note: this guitar has a few very small swirls in the lacquer, nothing major enough to call a scratch but it marks very easily.
This hadmade in the UK guitar has a one piece mahogany body with a maple cap and mahogany neck. Features a 44mm nut width, rosewood fretboard and comes with a hardcase.
This Gatsby is black on black on black - it sounds as fierce as it looks. A true rockers guitar with 2 home wound P90 pickups and an ebony neck, the swamp ash body just adds to the quality of this axe.
The Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster is one of the most sought after signature Fenders on the market, and rightly so. With Pure Vintage '65 Jazzmaster pickups and that oh-so-alluring Copper Age finish, this guitar both looks and sounds the part.
A handmade monster from Eastman. A one piece mahogany guitar, a wraparound tailpiece, ebony fingerboard and a handmade Lollar P90 pickup. So damn good.
A great Japanese Fender with a high quality 3 ply alder body, a new heel cut design and a fingerboard make from selected rosewood. The real MVP on this guitar however are the 3 4th Generation Noiseless pickups. Modern, fresh and Fender.
The classic 50s guitar with modern playability and features. The S-1 switch adds the neck pickup in position 1 and 2, the modern C neck and the 9.5" profile gives the standard modern feel. The difference? This guy sounds like it's from the 50s, and that's where the hot 50s strat pickups do their job beautifully.
A true classic remade for the modern era, the 50s Road Worn Strat features a thick sold "V" shaped neck and 3 vintage style Hot Strat single coil pickups. It looks really cool, too.
Three Hot ‘60s Strat® single-coil pickups combine with an S1 switch to create a cracking sound on this 60s inspired strat. With a pau ferro neck and a 42mm nut width, this alder body guitar sounds as good as it looks (we think it looks pretty damn cool).
Want the classic tele sound with some added modern extras? Look no further. With hot 60s tele pickups, this guy sounds the part, but also has the choice of putting the pickups in series for extra boost, and you can use the S-1 switch to put the pickups out of phase too. It's got a 60s C shaped neck with a 9.5" fingerboard for ease of playing too. All it's...
Inspired by budget brand American guitars of the 60s, but built to our very own specifications, this guitar is a throwback to a different time. If you know, you know.
It's the little things that make this guitar worth playing. The noiseless pickups, the push pull tone controls to active coil-split mode, the smooth neck, and of course the silverburst finish. And it's a Fender, so of course it's worth buying.
Another banger from Gordon Smith with a mahogany body and neck, 1 GS single coil pickup and 1 GS humbucker pickup - also features a rosewood fingerboard, chrome hardware and a GS hard case.
A super modern Tele with noiseless pickups, a push pull switch, locking tuners, a 6 saddle bridgr with block steel saddles and that super cool cosmic jade finish... I mean, what more do you want?
It's got the look, it's got the feel, it's got the modern added extras like the noiseless pickups, the coil-split mode and the locking tuners. It plays like a dream, sounds fantastic, and it's just missing you.
