Steve Phillips Guitar Sale

I am putting up for sale three of my own instruments. These are likely to be the last of my hand-built guitars to be available as I do not plan to build anymore. I have recently built instruments to replace these which is the only reason I am prepared to part with them.

They are based on the body shape Gibson used on their pre-war archtops. I always felt it was a shame Gibson never used this shape on their flat-tops of that period. They did in the 1950s-60s with the J185 which was a 14-fret to the body with a rather too thick soundboard.
