We all want to play and sound like our favourite artists – but doing so can come with a hefty price tag! The new Legends Series from PMT’s Antiquity brand stand as tributes to those legendary instruments and players – but without the big spend. Each guitar in the series is inspired by the guitar of a musical legend, with everything from old-school British Invasion sounds to stadium-filling metal represented.

The approachable price-tags of the Antiquity Legends Series guitars make them great for beginners. Who doesn’t want to kick-start their playing with an instrument that evokes their favourite player? Having that kind of inspiration on tap as you start out is a great way to ensure you stick at learning the guitar.

But the Antiquity Legends Series guitars aren’t just for beginners. If you’re a more experienced guitarist, the modern craftsmanship makes the range a great way to add a wider range of guitar shapes and sounds to your collection, whether that’s at home or in the studio. And we all know that you can get a great quality guitar for not that much cash these days – PMT promises excellent quality and performance, making them a great option if you need a more affordable backup for a main guitar – especially if you’re on the road a lot.

Ten of the best Antiquity Legends Series Guitars, at a Glance:

Antiquity Legends TS-MS1-SN


Inspired by the kinds of guitars played by grunge royalty, this metallic blue offset features both a humbucker and a single coil pickup for a wide range of sounds. There’s also a shorter 24” scale length, meaning an easier time for beginners, and a unique, reactive feel.

Antiquity Legends WS-ST2


This sleek vintage-style S-type features a classic set of electronics and hardware, and a look inspired by 1960s psychedelic legends. There’s a trio of single-coils for that bright classic rock sound, as well as an old-school non-locking vibrato unit for massive dive-bomb solos.

Antiquity Legends LS1-TA


Inspired by one of the most legendary rock guitars of all time, this amber-finished single-cut features all the trimmings you need to conjure stadium-filling riffs and fiery leads. A pair of zebra humbuckers have individual volume and tone controls, meaning you can go from a whisper to a roar in an instant. The amber flamed maple top completes the look – wall of Marshall stacks not included, however!

Antiquity Legends PF-ST2


This S-style is the perfect companion on your more out-there sonic journeys: three single coils provide a broad range of sounds, while a vintage-style vibrato unit will let you get even more expressive with your playing.

Antiquity Legends FB1-VSB


This sunburst offset takes off from one of the coolest guitar designs of all time. Featuring a distinctive raised-centre body and two mini humbuckers, it offers something a little different to the standard dual-humbucker rock guitars on offer, with plenty of its own character – and more than enough bite to go around. Plus, its aesthetic appeal is undeniable.

Antiquity Legends BA-JR1


This minimalist rock machine is inspired by the affordable student models that found themselves in the hands of many a punk across the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s. What’s more punk than not needing a neck pickup? Plus, if you’re going to just have one pickup, it might as well be a P90 – the famously versatile single-coil can do it all, from rock aggression to bell-like cleans. Adding to the straightforward style is a one-piece wraparound tailpiece, and a sleek all-white finish.

Antiquity Legends TL1-HB-NAT


Inspired by one of the most famous guitar mods of all time, the TL1 HB combines the twang of a single-coil single-cut with the sheer rock power of a neck humbucker. While the electronics offer a lot of tonal variety, a baked maple neck and a natural-finished alder body provide a raw and timeless look.

Antiquity Legends FV1-BLK


Nothing says you’re not messing around like a black V-shaped guitar: this rock and metal classic draws from a famously aggressive design, featuring two humbuckers and a string-through design for big chords, big sustain and big riffs.

Antiquity Legends EX1-NAT


This timeless guitar shape is a retro-futuristic rock and roll dream. The natural finish and gold hardware hint at the shape’s 1950s origins, while the two humbuckers provide all the rock tones you could need – but don’t mistake this for a pure metal machine – plenty of players have taken guitars like these on experimental sonic journeys.

Antiquity Legends VB-MC1-SB


Inspired by the classic violin-style basses seen on stages across the 1960s, the VB-MC1-SB offers vintage aesthetics combined with modern precision. There’s a dramatic sunburst on the small body, as well as some contrast provided by the white pickguard, white single-line binding and cream dot inlays.
