Initially inspired to take up guitar by Eric Clapton and Peter Green’s seminal guitar work with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers in the 60s, Geoff Whitehorn, who began playing guitar in earnest by the age of eleven, has since amassed many years of experience of top flight guitar playing. Bands and artistes who have enlisted Geoff’s prodigious talents on guitar include The Who, Paul Rogers (Free), Bad Company, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, Procol Harum, Vanessa Mae and Elkie Brooks.

A superbly-talented guitarist with a deft touch, as can be seen from the names he’s worked with, Geoff’s skills on guitar certainly cover an impressively wide variety of styles. So it’s fair to say that after four decades as a top flight professional musician, this guitarist knows a thing or two about guitars, how they play and how they (should) sound ... Geoff was invited to be part of the original focus group during the planning stages for what would become the Trev Wilkinson-conceived – and now very successful – Vintage Advance series of guitars and basses. Geoff has since gone on to use Vintage instruments onstage on his professional gigs, and has more recently been involved in the development of a signature Geoff Whitehorn Vintage guitar, based on the twin-cutaway AV6 model. The resulting guitar was the Vintage AV6HGW.

“I liked the AV6H design straight off,” he points out, “but having always had something of a tortoiseshell ‘fetish’ (probably down to seeing a gorgeous Fender Jaguar with torty scratchplate in my local music shop window at the age of 13 or so), I thought it might look pretty good, a vintage white guitar with a tortoiseshell scratchplate. And, black pickup covers and black rotary controls add to that ‘classic vintage’ look ... ”

This guitar is in relatively good condition but features small scratches and dings on the body, neck and headstock and tarnishing of metal hardware. It does not have a tremolo arm.
