Grouse Guitars, your favourite vintage guitar dealer

After a decade of working hard to source and present truly grouse* guitars, basses and amplifiers, I have decided to close Grouse Guitars.

I wish to concentrate on a few other things - including my health - for a while. I'm also taking the chance to immerse myself in a few projects I've put on the back-burner for too long, including my passion for restoring classic cars, and some other projects in my home workshop. Check out the grouse aluminium guitars I've recently started to enjoy! Patricia and I also enjoy getting to various parts of Australia in Dolph, our much-loved and much-travelled 1973 Bedford/Dolphin campervan.

I will still check my emails from time to time, so feel free to drop me an email. However, please respect the fact I am no longer trading, and note that I will not respond to emails requesting valuations or identification of your gear, no matter how veiled the requests may be.

I am always happy to hear from my many friends and past customers, and in some instances I may be interested in purchasing (for my own use) a genuinely GROUSE guitar, bass or amplifier you may wish to sell. If you include its details, your location and your selling price, I'll get back to you.Leo the Grouse Guitars mascot

In the interim, feel free to join me in viewing and salivating over the many grouse instruments that have sold over the past decade (use the amp knobs at the top of the page to view the sold guitars, basses and amps).


Leo's happy little life ended peacefully at home at 2pm Saturday September 30 2017. Happy, gentle and enthusiastic to the end, he brought a smile to many people in his 14 years, 7 months and 3 weeks, and was a most special little friend for me during the most challenging years of my life.

He lived a good life, and is now buried in a special part of the garden that he loved so much.

And now, welcome to two new tone hounds. Beaglier brothers Jake and Elwood, born 7th March, 2018.
