Gordon Smith Guitars are handbuilt by a team of highly skilled luthiers at a workshop in Northamptonshire. Each guitar is crafted from the finest tone wood, and is meticulously finished to create a level of quality many of the bigger manufacturers could only dream of. The fabulous build quality is complemented by the best quality hardware and Gordon Smith’s own hand wound pickups resulting in instruments with superb playability and beautiful tone.

We are excited to offer the all-new GS offset ‘The Gatsby’ to the Gordon Smith range. With its sleek lines and modern offset shape, the  Gatsby comes loaded with two home wound, chrome-covered GS P90’s, a low profile brass roller bridge, HK41 Vibrato tremelo, and GOTOH SG381 – 05 tuners. This example is a Leo & Ted’s custom order in lustrous Purple Shimmer finish with pearloid pickguard and roasted maple neck and fretboard. The body is made from cedar which is both resonant and beautifully light, resulting in a guitar that feels, plays and sounds fantastic! The neck is a slim profile with a vintage feel gloss finish.
