Scotland's biggest & best guitar store
With over 1500 guitars in stock from custom boutique brands to affordable beginner's instruments, as well as a plethora of backline, hundreds of FX pedals and boards, folk instruments and much more, we have everything you could ever possibly need to create any sound you could imagine.
One of the most impressive Acoustic guitar stores in Europe
In 2013 we opened our dedicated Acoustic store at 38 Trongate; right next door to our Electric & Bass store. The new Acoustic department offers an unparalleled setting in which to relax and try one of the best ranges of acoustic guitars you're ever likely to come across. In our dedicated and acoustically-treated Premier booth, you can close the door on the outside world and get your hands on the best guitars from legendary brands like Gibson, Taylor, Martin, Lowden and much, much more.
Scotland's only dedicated bass guitar department
Our Glasgow basement was transformed in the early part of 2017 to host something unique to us outside of London: a floor entirely dedicated to bass guitars and backline. Stocking everything from stalwarts such as Fender, Ibanez, Rickenbacker, Ampeg and Orange to more specialised and esoteric brands such as Mayones, Sandberg, MarkBass and Aguilar, the bass floor is a haven for the too-often neglected bass player.
Expert guitar tech and repair department
Whether it's an action adjustment, new pickups fitted, or even a crack or scratch repaired, our qualified luthier Billy Finlayson can take care of it all for you. He is extremely experienced at repairing guitars, building them from scratch and is also an seasoned pro player himself. Find out more about Billy's work, guitars and customers at www.finlaysonguitars.co.uk. Whatever you need done with your prized axe, drop a line to Billy and have a chat.
