We stock a wide range of classical and elctro acustic guitars for
the beginner to concert guitarist.

Classical

We have a wide range of top quality, hand made instruments to suit all levels of player. Each guitar that we stock is carefully set-up and checked to ensure that it meets our high standards, this combined with our personal one on one service from our guitar experts gives our customers, we believe, a great buying experience.

Our student guitars range from half (suitable for children from around six) to full size and are more than capable of taking the player to a decent standard (around grade 4 – 5). Although these guitars are at the cheaper end of our range they are all good quality playing instruments, with each being carefully set-up and checked and before selling.

For the more experienced player we offer a range of studio and concert guitars that are truly best in class handmade instruments capable of taking you to grade 8 and beyond. All our guitars in this range are made with the very best timbers from pretigious makers around the world.

Flamenco

Flamenco guitars are built lighter with thinner tops than classical guitars and produce a “brighter” and more percussive sound quality. Builders also use less internal bracing to keep the top more percussively resonant.

Each of the flamenco guitars in our range are extensively played and checked by our resident flamenco expert Cuffy – Cuffy’s name is synonymous with flamenco guitar in Bristol and far beyond! He regularly performs, teaches and is in much demand accompanying dancers and singers. He studied flamenco under Tito Heredia, Paco Serrano and Gerardo Nunez (to find out more check Cuffy’s full profile under Tuition).

Electro acoustic

We also stock a limited range of electro acoustic guitars. These offer the best of both worlds – the tone of an acoustic with the power, volume and capabilities of an electric. They are especially ideal on stage where they can be plugged straight into an amp without the need for mics.
