The risks of buying guitars online !

Almost anyone who can play the guitar would be unlikely to buy one online. A guitar is really not something you should be buying online. Shoes, hats, golf clubs, tennis racquets, crash helmets etc are other things better not bought without you trying them. Here are some reasons you should visit our store to buy your guitar….

The height of the strings from the neck is called the ‘action’. If the action is too high (see picture) then you will struggle to learn anything and you will most likely give up because it HURTS.  All our guitars (from beginner to pro) are properly adjusted to play nice and soft and easy. We only sell quality instruments that can be adjusted. You will enjoy learning and not struggle. Online sellers do not do this, they just ship you a guitar in a box and you’re on your own ! Beware.

You may also have small hands or really big hands ? Long fingers, short stubby fingers. We’re all different and so are guitars. Some necks are wider, some are narrower. You always need to try guitars in your own hand even if you can’t play well yet. If you can’t visit the store we can discuss it and ship you a properly set-up guitar.

  • What is a C neck, a D neck, a V neck...we can show you
  • Should I buy a steel string or a nylon string...we can show you
  • What is a jumbo fret...a medium jumbo....a vintage fret ?
  • Why is a vintage radius different than a modern radius ?
  • The internet is cheaper ? ...Not really, we will always look at matching online prices

    What Our Clients Say

    “Robert at the Guitar Lounge is not joking when he says he aims to beat competitors’ prices. A lot of other shops only price match but in most cases Guitar Lounge is able to beat them. Swift responses on all my tedious queries as well, highly recommended! My most recent purchase from the Guitar Lounge is a Fender Tonemaster Deluxe Reverb amp. Called up late afternoon, Robert gave me a great price, paid up and the next day I turned up at the shop – the amp was already sitting there in sealed box waiting for me to collect. You can’t beat that kind of service, and knowing I can speak to a real person face-to-face if I run into any warranty issue in the future is priceless.”
