About Us

For decades Guitar Village has been assisting guitar players (from the novice to the famous household names) find their dream guitar, and we're only closed 4 days a year, giving customers every opportunity to get down to the shop for a truly unique shopping experience.

With a plethora of well over 1,200 guitars spread throughout 15 demo rooms housed in a 15th century period building, there is a special kind of ‘homey ambiance’ that tends to let the guitarist feel comfortable which ultimately allows for a more relaxed guitar demo.

The staff at Guitar Village all play guitar (a necessity to work here unlike some guitar shop salesmen!) and have an extensive in depth knowledge and ability to guide customers onto the right guitar, which has always been called for having many high profile players through the door over the years. We also fully understand how intimidating guitar shops can be so all our staff are sensitive enough to give the guitar player enough privacy to feel at one with the guitar, which is especially important when assisting new younger players.

With the restoration of 2 more 15th century period display rooms, as well as a ‘Vintage Guitar Gallery’ now open, the shop is constantly seeking ways to expand and offer our customers more.

A fantastic range of low interest finance options now help the guitarist find the correct guitar for them without the price tag being an issue by spreading the instalments into easily manageable interest free payments. There’s nothing we love more than allowing a player of the past to re-live their passion by starting up again, but this time with the guitar they always wanted but could never afford.

We sell guitars on a worldwide basis through our website but a personal visit to the shop to take all of this in is very much recommended!

Fed up with websites advertising guitars that they don't actually have? So are we! The Guitar Village website is updated in Real Time , so that means the second we sell out of a guitar, the website will say 'out of stock'. If it says 'In Stock' then we do actually have it in stock and ready to go!
Any order placed before 1pm will be dispatched for free next working day delivery (UK only). We use UPS so it's fully tracked and insured and you can follow your shipment online.
We know how much of a gamble it can be purchasing a guitar online without trying it first. That's why if you receive your order and it's not as you expected, just let us know within 14 working days and we will have it collected by UPS and refunded (or exchanged if preferred). Online only.
We have 2 in-house guitar technicians here at Guitar Village, so that means all guitars in stock are constantly checked and maintained by one of our techs for optimum playability.
As soon as a guitar is sold it will be triple checked again through our quality control and fully setup to ensure it's playing just as you like right out of the box.
We offer a fantastic range of flexible finance options to make your purchase even easier.
Upto 12 months interest free plans on all products over £350 (loan amount), as well as special 18, 24 or 36 months interest free finance offers on selected products!

Video Calls Now Available

We completely understand how daunting it can be purchasing a guitar online without seeing or trying it first. 

We already go to great lengths to ensure all stock levels are in real time so you can see exactly what we have in stock at all times, we also photograph each individual guitar for the website, plus give as much detailed information on each guitar as possible. But sometimes that just isn't enough.

Of course our sales team are always happy to talk through any product in great detail on the phone but sometimes it's better to actually see and hear it. 

This is why we're now giving customers the option of a video call so we can talk face to face to discuss a particular product and demonstrate the features of that individual product.

To request one of our sales team to give you a video call please contact us via email or on 01252 726821.
