The ideal platform for learning to play. And the guitar could well last you past those first powerchords in the bedroom and onto your first solo on stage.

A gritty, thick fuzz with impressive tonal versatility.

If you don't want the bulk of the ES-330, but still hanker after those hollowbody P-90 sounds, this is for you. It's great value, too.

Lets you turn up the fuzz with an expression pedal - cool or what?

It doesn't quite capture the tonal excellence of the recent 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335, but it's close, plus the Varitone offers a wealth of sonic options.

A great all-round dirtbox to complement your amp.

A versatile alternative for anyone yearning for a vintage Shin Ei FY-2.

With its carefully considered new features, the Deluxe Big Muff is massively more potent while still retaining its essential character.

Arguably not as versatile as an ES-335 due to its hollow body, but its lightweight feel and hugely evocative sound are exceptional.
