For amplifiers we offer PRS valve amps, VOX valve amps and AER acoustic amps. If you would like a guitar or amp by these companies that is not listed then we are happy to order it for you.

LATEST ARRIVALS: Here are some special guitars that landed recently e.g. the first pair are beautiful PRS Private Stock guitars, a C24 in Koa and a C22 in Curly Maple - the latter was inspired by a Stradivarius violin if you notice the inlays around the Ebony fingerboard are similar to the top purfling on the Ole Bull Stradivarius. The SUGI Bass is a handmade Koa 4string crafted by Makoto Sugimoto and his team at Japan's premiere luthiery, the SUGI GUITARS & BASSES company. The archtop is an ex-demo PRS JA-15, a superb artist grade instrument as used by session guitarist Paul Jackson Jr.

PRIVATE DEMOS: We have a recording studio to try guitars in a private quiet space or to reveal how they sound in a recording environment prior to purchase.

ACCESSORIES: Alongside the fine guitars you will also find a diverse selection of accessories by MXR, HERCULES, MONO, DUNLOP and other quality brands.

ORDER A CUSTOM GUITAR: We are custom shop dealers of PRS GUITARS PRIVATE STOCK, SUGI GUITARS and SANTA CRUZ GUITAR COMPANY. Maybe you have seen and/or played a model you like but want it personalised? Simply ask in store for details. For ideas and inspiration visit our GALLERY.Here is an example of a customer's SUGI order in the beginning of the process. The exotic tonewoods for the top, fretboard and neck (plus the lacquer style)have been chosen to match the customer's Sunrise theme and the artisty has begun.

LEARNING TO PLAY: Our instruments are chosen to inspire progress by delighting the serious eye (and eventually the discriminating ear) with as much ease as possible. Since these guitars and basses are a considered purchase, individual lessons are offered to people who invest here. They are designed to ensure that after a few months of dedicated practice you will make the best use of your practice time, avoid bad habits from day 1 and be introduced to all the techniques, theory and classic tracks you need to get a lifetime of enjoyment.

SETUPS, MODS & REPAIRS: We have a small dedicated workshop and can only undertake work on guitars that have been bought here.

USED GUITARS: If you invest in one of our high-end guitars, we will as a courtesy endeavour to sell one from your collection on consignment for an agreed market value. We do not offer Part-Ex or buy guitars.

MUSIC THEORY: Visit this page THEORY GUIDE to learn about the in-house guide. If you would like to purchase a copy it is £10, presented in digital .pdf format for all platforms and is sent via email as an attachment. Just send an email requesting a copy and we'll issue a paypal invoice or send you bank account details for a transfer.
