“From the very first moment when Travis at Vintage Electric called me and informed me the 1986 Gary Moore PRS was mine if I want to buy it – up until after I’ve received it to my home in Sweden, I’ve been in contact with him all the way through out the purchase of the guitar.”

“Travis and everyone involved have been so helpful and I am very thankful I got the opportunity to buy a glorious guitar owned by my biggest hero of all time – Gary Moore.

“I will treasure this guitar and take care of it, I will make Gary Moore proud and I will let his spirit feel the guitar is in the right hands to carry on his legacy.”

“I will do my very best to honour him with my guitar playing on his old guitar.”

“Thank you Travis and everyone around you that have been so helpful! Getting all the paperwork done properly, packing it superbly, arranging CITES, customs and the transportation and sourcing provenance of the guitar from Gary Moore’s bass player, Bob Daisley.”

“Let’s rock!! Cheers, Tommy”

“Dear Travis,”

“The business done with your shop was first class !!! (Despite the fact that I cannot use the internet very well) I’m getting old!”

“The Gurian Cutaway is absolutely stunning and in mint condition. IT SOUNDS LIKE A CATHEDRAL! I had a Gibson CF-100 1957 for years, but there is nothing to compare!”

“You’ve done a fantastic work, and I’m really glad to have done this deal with you. All I can say is: Congratulations from a very happy customer!”

“Loved dealing with Travis when buying this spectacular vintage amp from him. Happy to chat on the phone about all the details and offered skype demonstration as we were on other sides of the country ;)”

“Amplifier arrived safe and sound and boy does it sing! I wish I had one of these little guys years ago! Thanks again Travis, 10/10 vintage amp, 10/10 vintage dealer.”

“I purchased my 1972 Fender Jazz Bass from Travis (aka “Vintage Electric Guitars”) in August 2015 and I was very happy with my purchase.

Travis was very helpful in providing information about the Bass guitar and was very honest and up front with me. Travis was also flexible in relation to picking up the guitar. Thoroughly recommended!!”

“Travis offered me flexible options for shipping and payment of my 1975 P bass. Once the transaction was complete, the bass was professionally packed and delivered promptly.

It was a great experience and he dealt with all the payment and logistics flawlessly. First class vintage instrument. Love it.”

“I bought my ES-335 ’59 Reissue from Travis. This guitar was shipped/packed really well and arrived in Melbourne without any issues. Travis helped by providing additional photos and information which was helpful.

Communication was great and he kept me up to date throughout the shipping process. It was an easy transaction and would recommend using Vintage Electric Guitars in the future.”

Steve Mangan
(Melbourne, VIC)

“I had been on the look out for years for a ’78 Les Paul Custom in Wine Red to replace a guitar I sold years ago (and always regretted!). I wanted one as near mint as possible and when I saw the guitar advertised on Travis’s site, I thought, this is the one.

I had some qualms about dealing with an unknown seller so far away, but I had nothing to worry about. The transaction was smooth and easy and Travis kept me completely informed at every stage.”

John Chevalier Gibson SG Deluxe Stereo 1972

“Working with Travis at Vintage Electric Guitars has been a great experience. In 1977, I owned a 1972 Gibson Stereo Deluxe but parted with it in 1985 in New York. Not expecting to find another, especially one in excellent condition, I was happy to find another on the internet.

Travis sent me additional photos of the piece and the guitar arrived exactly in the condition that I expected. I would highly recommend Travis at Vintage Electric Guitars to anyone. Thanks!”

“Travis from Vintage Electric Guitars is easy to talk to and very flexible. He is a great source of knowledge and his service is very professional. The bass arrived incredibly well packed and in amazing condition. Highly recommend!

As I also live in Perth, Travis arrived at my house with three beautiful Precision Basses for me to try, a 1965 and two 1971 basses. I purchased the 1971 sunburst.

The bass was thoroughly inspected by my local music store and was exactly as described with the neck stamped 1971 and all other parts correct and as described. Travis was accommodating and professional throughout the transaction. I’m super happy with my new (old) bass and thoroughly recommend Travis as a trust-worthy purveyor of fine vintage guitars and amps.

“I purchased a Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass from Travis in May 2016. Travis prepared my guitar in a most professional way, and made special arrangements through Pack & Send to have it delivered to Queensland.

The bass was received in good condition thanks to the care and attention shown by Travis. The part that impressed me the most was that he made follow up calls on how the guitar travelled and how accurate the description he had given me of the bass was.

On both counts I could not have been happier. I would have no issues purchasing another guitar from him in the future, or recommending him to other potential customers.”

Barry Constable

“I recently became the proud owner of a Fender Custom Shop Deluxe Telecaster purchased from Vintage Electric Guitars. The whole experience was absolutely trouble free and the professional service provided by Travis was first class.

I highly recommend this business if you are in the market for something out of the ordinary.”

“I recently purchased a beautiful little fender amp from VEG, delivered to my door by Travis , all good with this man and his company highly recommended and you can buy with confidence , thanks for a great deal guys.”

1965 Fender Jaguar

“A little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing with vintage guitars. Trust then becomes a very important issue. My experience with buying from Travis is that he is works with you, is open to questions and looks to establish that trust. I believe he is a reputable dealer with a good knowledge of the instruments he represents.”

Stu W.
(Daglish, WA)

“Being somewhat apprehensive about buying a vintage guitar unseen and unplayed, I found Travis to be approachable, easy to talk to, and generous with his time in answering my questions.

The Telecaster which arrived was well packed and matched the description and photos provided. What I didn’t expect was the after-sale follow-up, which demonstrates Travis has a sincere aim to ensure you’re satisfied with your purchase.

I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase another guitar from Travis.”
