REVIEWS

Here are some comments from customers of either the shop, school or studio.

Barry Howarth

I bought a cheap Strat copy from Guy some years ago when I arrived broke from a messy divorce and was impressed with his knowledge and care. I now live in Spain and had stupidly dropped and smashed the headstock of a beautiful Epi Riviera. The locals in Spain pronounced it unrepairable so when I returned to Lytham thinking of selling the bits Guy asked to have a go at a repair. I am now seriously happy with a truly unique Riviera sporting a discreet "bandage" around the top of the neck but still making me sound like Scotty Moore. The price for the repair was fantastic! I highly recommend this shop to anyone from a beginner to a player. St Annes is fortunate to have such a great shop with such great service.

Andy Gregson

Great service from Guy who is a really nice chap and very knowledgable about guitars. Took my guitar in for a set up as wasn't happy with the job done at another local shop - came back a totally different guitar with really low playable action. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Guy who is more than happy to spend plenty of time with you as a customer understanding your requirements.

 

Joanna Griffin
Absolutely fantastic! He really knows what he is talking about and it's obvious how much he loves what he does.
Really helpful and friendly, cannot recommend enough!

Guy is a very friendly & knowledgeable man. Nothing is to much trouble and his work is of the highest quality. For all things guitar he is the man to go even for free advice. Good range of guitars & accessories.

Graham Noble

Took a bass into guy to get set up. Guy listened to what I wanted and advised an appropriate path. I wanted a set up for C- standard tuning, he advised on the correct strings and ordered them in for me, not just what he had in stock (like some other shops) Good value and great service.

 

Connor Mulvey

Brilliant service, my guitars have never played so well!

 

Mark Bonney

A1. Best shop around fantastic service.

 

Michael Whittaker

Took my guitar in for a service and new strings as I am a new player and was clueless! Guy was incredibly helpful and friendly and gave me loads of advice and tips. Will definitely return and recommend to friends �

 

James Hunter

I have always bought my guitar strings from here and just recently bought a new guitar as well. Amazing quality, very reasonable prices and very knowledgeable, and will help you for anything you may need. Would recommend to anyone.

 

Scott Mather

So being wet behind the ears when it comes to playing guitar, (apart from being a top air guitarist) I've not played a single note before I went to St Anne's guitars, I must say Guy really knows his stuff, not only on teaching but all things to do with guitars, and likes to share his expertise which is a massive plus for me. There is nothing he won't help you with outside of your lesson. I have popped in several times to ask him certain things from my lesson and he's more than happy to help always. That's why he gets 5stars from me. Cheers Guy. 🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸😀

 

Julie Harvey

Guy has been brilliant over the years from teaching my son music theory and guitar, to restringing and servicing our instruments and sharing his vast knowledge on all things guitar , and music production. The shop has a superb stock of guitars and accessories. He always has time to chat and advise and I have no hesitation in recommending him highly. He's also an amazing guitarist and musician.

 

Steve McCartney

Thanks for the setup on my Peavey 5 string Bass - it feels like new and practically plays itself. Perfect for a few projects I'm working on. Great job, great price.

 

Clive Lawrence

I recently took my son into this shop to get a new guitar. Although he wasn't sure what he wanted, Guy, took the time to demonstrate and explain a range of guitars before we found and settled for the one that was perfect for him. I would recommend Guy without hesitation. Thanks Again.:)

 

James Boothman

In October 2016 I called in to the shop for some advice on buying a guitar and lessons as for ten years or so I wanted to learn to play the guitar 🎸. Since starting the lessons I have purchased an outstanding guitar etc the advice prior to buying, the service and support have been second to non, not forgetting the excellent lessons from a patient and knowledgable professional tutor.

 

Joni Fuller

I've always had excellent service from Guy at Lytham St Annes Guitars who always goes out of his way to help. I recently bought a pristine Gordon Smith guitar and am really happy with it... It's fantastic to have such a great local service and I never hesitate to return!!

 

Alan Bates

With a great selection of quality instruments to drool over Guy also finds time for everyone regardless of ability and always ready to offer help and advice.

 

Michal Sochor

Hi, I have 2 guitars for this shop and I'm very very happy, good price and best quality - also having lessons and I could not be more happy.

 

Heidi Jordan

Excellent guitar lessons. I am nearly a rock chick now. Friendly service and very knowledgeable.

 

Adam Bromby

Guy is a very friendly and approachable owner. His knowledge is second to none and I couldn't be more happy with the experience I have had buying from him. His lessons are well structured and he makes learning an enjoyable experience. Great shop and a great place for all your guitar needs

 

Martin Benson

Can't recommend Guy and his place highly enough. You will be sold what you need not what costs the most, that said if you want something special he has that as well.

 

Jeff Woods

Mature drummer with own teeth and hair into prog/rock/blues" - that profile hasn't got me into a band yet so I thought I would add another string to my bow by learning to play the bass guitar. I am really enjoying the weekly lessons with Guy who is very patient with me even though my fingers seem to have a mind of their own at times. Great stress buster on Monday afternoons and highly recommended.

 

James Brandes

I've recently started guitar lessons with Guy and I'd highly recommend him to others. He's an extremely patient and highly knowledgeable teacher. It's an absolute pleasure going to each lesson. Guy has an encyclopaedic knowledge of songs and of guitars. Walk into his shop and you can tell that he really knows his stuff. If you're into guitars and haven't checked out St. Annes Music, do so immediately. :-)

 

Brendan Lucey

Friendly and enthusiastic service. I've bought all my guitars, amps and accessories from Guy, who never hesitates to offer advice and tips. For example, on buying a guitar he offered a free 30 minute lesson, which finished 2 hours later. I always go back because I feel welcomed, even though I now live in Bedford.

 

Andy & Laura Walsh

Our daughter has lessons weekly here, she enjoys it immensely. Guy is an excellent patient and knowledgable tutor and has taken our daughter from a novice to being competent on her guitar and makes the lessons very enjoyable. I would recommend guy as a tutor and the range of products on sale is second to none. Guy was recommended to me by word of mouth and I am glad he was, as it's opened a great new learning experience for our daughter. Great local shop with quality instruments & Guy is always helpful.If your looking for guitar lessons or guitars/etc pay a visit here, you won't be disappointed.

 

Thomas Whiteside

I decided to make one final attempt to play a musical instrument, chose the guitar and booked some lessons with Guy. I really could not have made a better choice! Lessons are relaxed and Guy skilfully tailors sessions to meet my requirements and limitations! Guy has been patient and supportive at all times providing regular feedback and solutions for any guitar problems I have encountered making the lessons a real pleasure. Guy also provides extremely comprehensive customer service for the purchase of guitars and accessories offering advice and guidance with no pressure to simply buy. Guy has an obvious passion for music and guitars, is an accomplished tutor and I would highly recommend him without hesitation.

 

Stuart Bence

I really enjoy my lessons with Guy. He tailors the lessons to my ability. Only a short time in learning the guitar, he’s helped me understand more about music/guitars and I’m now starting to play music I didn’t think I was capable of. Visiting Guy’s shop, you will always find a friendly welcome and a great mix of quality guitars, amps, etc. He also has a recording studio! I would highly recommend Guy to anyone who’s looking to improve their playing, buy their first guitar or upgrading.

 

Mark Holton

A superb shop, whenever I walk in Guy is genuinely interested in how I'm getting on with Music. I've had lessons from Guy and associates (and my kids have), bought instruments, had instruments repaired, and tonnes of advice and support. Never pressured, always friendly. Great range of stock for a small shop - even left handed instruments which I used to struggle to get. I can't recommend them enough :)

 

Peter Horton

Guy has built a great destination shop and studio that offers quality musical instruments and tuition. It's a pleasure visiting Guy as he looks after his customers with great service in a relaxed atmosphere. Just bought my second guitar from Guy after trying out loads of options and taking on board his expert advice I am confident it was the right choice.

 

Roger Cartwright

An eclectic mix of high end and budget acoustic /electric guitars.A great selection of Martin acoustics ,so good in fact that I invested in one 6 months ago and have not stopped playing it since! Guy certainly knows his guitars and will definitely find the right one for you whether you have a tight budget or otherwise.Highly recommended!

 

Guy Haythornthwaite

Absolutely fantastic service. Great product range and so much knowledge which Guy shared enthusiastically - answering all my questions and more besides. I was able to relax and take my time choosing my new guitar and trying others - which means I'm now totally thrilled with my purchase, the perfect one for me! Great aftersales service and always a friendly welcome when you need advice.

 

Paul Breedon

Laid down some original tracks last Friday with Guy. Simply awesome experience. Guy's production skills are second to none. Equally important was Guy's attitude and experience. He provides the confident platform for the performer to deliver. The " George Martin " of St.Annes! Thanks again mate.

 

Ben Melvin

Very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic service. Guy is tutoring our son on the guitar and we are very pleased with the results so far. Guy is patient and informative when teaching but also firm and in control when needed. The lessons are reasonably priced and availability is good but you can see he is busy. Well presented shop and suitable tuition area. Cannot fault it!

 

Gaynor Cook

An excellent music store with professional help, advice, & if required, instrument tuition. Additionally, this great service extends to a recording studio, together with an experienced musician / engineer.

 

Vic Heaney

I am really pleased that I found St Annes Guitars when I returned to Lancashire after 57 years away, mainly overseas. I was looking for a guitar tutor but found much more. Guy is a knowledgeable, competent and patient teacher. He has shown no sign of irritation at trying to drum theory and more into a 75-year old brain. If he can teach me to play a recognisable – if not yet perfect – version of Mark Knopfler’s theme from “Local Hero”, he can clearly produce even better results from more malleable minds. I would never have dreamed of attempting such a complex tune without Guy's encouragement. And all this happens in a shop – a musical Aladdin’s cave, with an irresistible stock of guitars, amps and other music bits and pieces. And there is a recording studio as well! When I am old enough to consider joining a group, this is the place where I will be taking them to lay down our first tracks.

 

Graham Hornsby

Discovered Guy's shop this year having decided to learn the guitar properly and what a find! Guy is extremely knowledgeable and a great tutor - I have learnt more in the last 3 months than I have in the last 10 years trying to teach myself. Also, he has a fantastic range of guitars - something for all abilities and budgets.

 

Dawn-Sarah Lucey

From the experience of a complete beginner, Guy has been a font of useful information. He has guided my purchases and always been happy and helpful. In fact I think so highly of his opinion, his customer service and his fair prices that I travel over 200 miles to buy from this amazing place.

 

Mike Alexander

Nice guitar shop and very friendly service. Very helpful via email answering all questions before I even travelled to the shop which made the whole process even better. Ended with me buying a guitar that I am very happy with.

Michael Broomfield-Payne

Service that's professional yet relaxed . Guy will give you all the time you need, whether you're a beginner or a veteran. Great range of products , accomplished tuition and studio services. Everything under one roof.

Excellent service provided by Guy. I have used the recording studio and also had some songwriting sessions here. Guy is very professional and knowledgable and creates a relaxed atmosphere.
