Burns of London have been building quality instruments for a number of years and have continued the Burns legacy by introducing several new models recently. A few of those will appeal to guitarists who play in the style of The Shadows and Hank Marvin, namely the Burns Marvin and the Burns Apache.
Barry Gibson is the man behind the company and his wealth of knowledge and after sales service is a credit to the industry. Browse through the Burns of London website and once again fall in love with these beautiful instruments.
Wilson Bros Guitars offer an excellent range of instruments that are endorsed and played by the legendary instrumental outfit, The Ventures.
The main website has full details of all the models currently in production and as the proud owner of one myself (finished in pearl white) I can only praise these tremendous looking guitars.
These fine instruments are also available to purchase in the UK through Adam Hall
Hallmark Guitars were unknown to me until I happened to click on a link via a Shadows forum and entered their website
I've since read some very favourable reviews of their guitars and Ventures fans will positively drool when they see the superb looking Mosrite-styled '60 Custom Guitar' in various finishes. Absolutely gorgeous!
How on earth can I get one ordered, delivered and hidden away before the good lady realises?
Answers on a postcard please!
The TVS echo system is big news in the Shadows world and according to some reports this is the most authentic sounding echo unit around at the moment.
Manufactured in Australia, the TVS system is a quality product and that is reflected in its price.

Hank Marvin is currently using the TVS echo unit on tour with Cliff Richard & The Shadows.
Charlie Hall's wonderful Echoes From The Past programs were a revelation when introduced several years ago and such was the quality that Hank Marvin himself used Charlie's echo programs on tour in the 1990s.
Charlie has an interesting discussion board website where your questions are answered and knowledge is passed from person to person. Invaluable.
