Great Player Guitars is about my beloved working tools based in my studio in Zurich, Switzerland. You want to buy sell or trade? Lets get in touch.
Through the years I turned towards Vintage gear, since the sound of the old guitars are unequaled. I focus on playergrade guitars that are still in financial reach because they lack the important collector attributes like original finishes, routing, etc. I care for the hardware that make these guitars so unique. It’s about Great Player Guitars that make you want to play and play.
I do trade, buy and sell but only on private basis. This is not a shop!!!
Dynamics and Resonance are the most important factors I care for in a guitar, besides the professional playing feel of the neck. Generally I look for Custom Shop quality in my instruments, since they have to fullfill professional standards live or in the studio. Therefore most of them come from Custom Shops or are real vintage guitars. I am mainly into Fenders Stratocaster or Telecaster and do enjoy some Gibsons as well, as I need them for my studiowork. I also do like some smaller Guitarbuilders, building Strats and Teles.
My guitars are set up by a guitar tech for perfect functionality and playing feel.
All guitars are good to extraordinary "player" guitars, as described. There are and have been few Collector's items among them the as the 57 Fullerton Strat from 1982 (July 82!!), Cunetto Fiesta Red Strat and Fender CS masterbuilder's John Cruz JC 005, his 5th ever built guitar as a masterbuilder and more to come. They are very rare and rising in price.
I am a guitarplayer and therefore a private collector. These are my workingtools and I like changing, buying, selling or trading great playing top notch guitars, so the journey to find tonal nirvana can continue. If you are interested in buying, selling, swapping, get in touch.
The Instruments are accurately described with fotos, (videos) and written descriptions. You will get what you see, no monkey business.
I am a guitar player and I prefer a non vintage correct instrument if it plays great. Sound is the ultimate premise. So I am not the right guy to buy expensive
collector stuff from. I can't tell you which screw is original and which one not. But I sure know if that guitar plays and sounds right.
Make an appointment to play and ask all the necessary question before buying the instrument. Since I am a private collector I do not take back instruments nor do I give garantee on them.
