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.

This is the Gatsby – Gordon Smith’s take on the classic offset guitar. With its sleek lines and modern 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 from the GS Super-Lite series weighing in at just 6lb 8oz.  The body is made from paulownia 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 tint finish. Comes with a GS ABS moulded hardcase
