Try guitars from legendary brands like Gibson, Taylor, Martin, Lowden and much, much more.

Scotland's only bass guitar floor

4 strings are just as important as 6, so head downstairs to find the finest collection of bass guitars anywhere in the country! Our Glasgow basement was transformed in 2017 to host something unique: a floor entirely dedicated to bass guitars and backline. Stocking everything from stalwarts such as Fender, Ibanez, Music Man, and Rickenbacker to more specialised and niche brands such as Sandberg, Sadowsky, the bass floor is a haven for the too-often neglected bass player.
