In the second episode of Guitar Shopping, we head down to the wonderful Northern Guitars in Leeds with Yard Act’s Sam Shipstone, who sampled some of the shop’s finest vintage oddities.

Along the way Sam meets – and tries – such rarities as a mini-humbucker-loaded Rapier 33, a Westone Rainbow II and a  Ronnie Bennett Lap Steel. There’s nothing quite like going guitar shopping in Northern Guitars, or indeed any shop packed to the rafters with pre-loved instruments – and Sam clearly loves the strange selection on display!
