Congratulations go to Mr Steve Smith of Combwich, Nr Bridgewater, Somerset for being the winner of the Vintage VE 2000 GG Rob Armstrong designed acoustic. This guitar comes with a superb deluxe case.

In recognition of Gordon’s contribution to the world of guitar music for more than 40 years, John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd. the worldwide trade distributors of Vintage ® brand instruments has launched the Vintage Gordon Giltrap Signature electro acoustic Guitar.

Designed in conjunction with respected master luthier Rob Armstrong and Gordon himself, this crossover Grand Auditorium/000 style Vintage electro-acoustic is based on a handcrafted instrument that Rob made back in 1980 and Gordon plays today.
