GEOFFREY ‘BISON’ BANKS – A collection of guitars and guitar tech equipment

Geoff’s stage side equipment

Geoffrey Banks, known to many as ‘Bison’, is a well-known Nottingham based guitar technician.  He spent much of his working life touring the world as the personal guitar tech for such household names as Malcolm Young (AC/DC), Mike Rutherford (Genesis, Mike & The Mechanics), Brian May (Queen), Steve Howe, Robert Plant, Phil Collins, Toto and McFly to name a few.  We are delighted to offer for sale Geoff’s personal guitars, many of which he customised or built himself, as well as a large selection of tools, equipment and spares, that assisted Geoff during his time as a touring tech.
