Retirement beckons and as I plan to do quite a lot of travelling I will not have time to look after my guitar collection.  So the time has come to find them good homes.  My preference would be to sell the collection as a whole (with one or two exceptions), but I am also willing to consider offers for individual instruments and/or putting them up for auction.  Expressions of interest in purchasing individual guitars or the whole collection are welcome.  I will probably hold one last Open Day in the autumn and will announce the date here.
