I'm pretty sure that's the same Martin Kelly who has an astonishing collection of British-made Vox gear too. Amazing stuff!!

It is, and the same MK who co-wrote Fender the Golden Age, you can see some more pics of these guitars in that book as well :)

wow, I say wow!
plenty of guitars there that I would lust over if I had a larger bank balance.
The comments about sonic / daphne blue are spot on …. high percentage of adds I see that are for daphne are obviously (to my eyes) sonic (even adds for new guitars)

The photography is also pretty impressive
relaxing alternative to doing actual work ...

More like twice that + and it’s not a refin, it’s original!

I'll just leave these here (the tip of the iceberg) and move on...

And a true gentleman! Martin is a wealth of knowledge, and he goes to great lengths to share and spread information about these guitars online and in books. Huge contribution to the vintage gear community, I think.

Martin is also working on THE definitive history book about Rickenbacker guitars, which is a subject that has never been truly and properly covered before.

Look forward to that and his Vox guitars book once that's published.

Yeah Martin is such a great guy - and super, super passionate about nailing the details. Honestly if he wrote a book about Encore guitars I'd read it! Cannot *wait* for the Vox book
