Like lots of kids in their teens I was desperate to play in a band. Sadly I lacked the funds to buy a guitar and so, with the confidence of youth, decided to make one. As it turned out my guitar making skills far outweighed my playing ability so here I am, nearly 40 years later, running a guitar shop rather than living the life of a rock star.
Now working out of our shops in Abingdon, Oxfordshire and Dolgellau, Gwynedd I offer a setup, repair and custom build service for most stringed instruments. Everything from replacing a single string on your guitar through a full refurbishment of an old family faithful to a custom build to your own specification.
Our shops also have a range of refurbished and properly setup used instruments at bargain prices. The generosity of our friends and customers means that we often have good usable starter instruments for little more than the price of a decent setup and a new set of strings. Check out our ethos statement to see why being able to do that is so important to us.
