SEE THE UK GUITARIST, GORDON GILTRAP PERFORMING WITH HIS VINTAGE VE2000DLX at the Great British Folk Festival at Butlins on 5th Dec 2010.

The award winning Vintage model : VE2000DLX / VE2000GG / VE2000MGG were developed in collaboration with Gordon, JHS and Rob Armstrong, master luthier and designer of Gordon's original custom built guitar on which the signature model is closely based.


'I am proud to put my name to this guitar and for it to be part of my musical legacy'.
– Gordon Giltrap

The first reviews of the new guitar are now starting to come in. The Guitarist Magazine's Oct 2010 interviewed with Gordon and their review which crowns the guitar "Guitarists Choice" with 5 star ratings for value for money and an overall score of 4 1/2 stars !

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, the crossover Grand Auditorium/000 style Vintage VE2000GG Gordon Giltrap Signature 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’s trademark headstock design.
The electronic pick-up
FISHMAN RARE EARTH BLEND : is a magnetic sound-hole pick up with improved microphone and re-voiced electronics offer a warmer, more natural acoustic tone. Easily accessible Mic/Pickup Blend Control offers fingertip control to dial in just the right blend. For unequalled sound quality and ease of use, it’s hard to beat the performance of the Rare Earth Blend.

Cutting-edge neodymium magnets provide excellent string-to-string balance while the pickup’s active electronics and low-noise, discrete circuitry design keep the sound pure and clean with smooth response throughout the frequency range.

The bridge is high grade rosewood, with a gradually compensated natural bone saddle providing excellent intonation, whilst the mahogany neck comes with a top quality rosewood fingerboard, with genuine abalone inlays and side dot markers.

Electrics are provided via a Fishman Presys Blend preamp and Sonicore pickup system, which features a built in-microphone with mic blend control, notch -– anti feedback control, phase control button, three band EQ and volume control as well as a built-in guitar tuner, with flip-top easy battery access.

Gordon comments "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."
