Barnes and Mullins has acquired the Shergold Guitar brand and intends to bring the British guitar line back to life.
Bruce Perrin and Brian Cleary finalised the purchase of the Shergold Guitar Company in late August from David and Philip Golder (pictured) – two of the late Jack Golder’s sons.
Shergold Guitars ceased trading back in the late 1980s, but in their halcyon days they regularly shared the stage with bands such as Genesis, Joy Division and New Order. The brands was led by Jack and Norman Holder, and was part of the pair’s rich heritage of UK-built instruments that included names such as Burns, Hayman and Ned Callan.
“It’s not our intention to reintroduce Shergold as a ‘retro’ brand,” said Barnes and Mullins' joint MD, Brian Cleary. “We have a strong idea of what Shergold Guitars can be in 2014. I am really very excited about this project.”
