For 2011 Gordon Smith have re-introduced a model from yesteryear but with a few twists for the modern discerning player.
What is REALLY exciting is that I have the PROTOTYPE available for sale. Well I will do in a few days time. In the mean time I have a few pics which they have sent me to wet all of our appetites.
The Gemini sports some rather cool retro controls which whilst looking cool also appear to be incredibly practical with the clear markers on the controls - nice touch.
This guitar is all about having the best of the best. You will see there is greater detail in the headstock design, scraped wood purfling all around the body and headstock which always looks stunning and not only do you get a stunning quality top to drool over but the reverse side also has a high quality veneer too and the result looks really tasty.
On chatting to John about the Gemini it is clear that his intention for the Gemini is to wrap the awesome tone and playability of all his guitars into the most beautiful and charismatic package ever - the finest woods he can lay his hands on, the greatest attention to the finer detail - lets face it we all love beautiful guitars right? And this is Johns work at his very finest.
I am doing my best to try and keep Gordon Smith guitars in for you to try but its always so hard as they go as fast at they arrive and I daren't order too many at one time! You can check out a list of forthcoming arrivals here - all due shortly.
And of course on top of that list is the Gemini - For now I am the only shop in the UK where you can try this guitar and mine will be available as a prototype for £1299 (and labelled as a prototype to ensure the highest collectable value in the future).
Future Gemini models will be available at £1499. Call me on 01789 26 33 33 if you would like to test drive or reserve - Remember this is a TRUE collectors item without any question.
Here are a couple of pics as a taster of the Gemini Prototype heading my way this week...

Every guitar is packed personally by Richard. We purchase especially strengthened outer cartons and pack each guitar in a way that guarantees the guitar will come out the box as it went in - perfect.
If you bought your guitar from an alternate source it would cost you at least £50 to have it play to the standard that we set our guitars AS standard.
Why would you want to buy from a faceless online store if you can buy from someone who values every customer and their personal needs?
I do hope we can help you further as we provide the service you wish you could find locally!
