The Guitar Shack

Guitars and amps of all styles and prices

We are delighted to be an Aria Pro Dealer and can now offer this great range of super quality guitars, basses, acoustics, Pignose travel guitars, Rat effects pedals and accessories all backed by a full manufacturer warranty


For 40 years I have played and loved guitars. I’ve bought and sold many along the way. Plenty of amps and pedals as well. You may be thinking that sounds a bit familiar - it is a bit of a guitarist’s curse I believe. So, I’ve embraced the “disease” and decided to have some fun with it.


Hence The Guitar Shack was formed.


Anyway, alongside our Aria products, I only buy stuff that I would play and keep myself, so you won’t find any rubbish guitars or kit on this site. If I wouldn’t buy it to keep, then I won’t sell it to anyone else.


Take a look at what I’ve got for sale and if you are looking for something in particular, I’ll try to help you find it.


All guitars are set up before sale so you can just get it and play!


You are welcome to come and try everything out, message me first to arrange a convenient time. I can also post items - guitars are normally £25 by insured courier. Amps will vary by weight and size, but £35 covers most.


I’m also interested in buying guitars, amps and pedals if you have any to sell.


If you might be worried about buying on-line, but here's some testimonials from recent customers that will hopefully give you some confidence.


Superb build and service...
Regular photo updates and very easy to chat with.

I will be back with another idea..

Just got the lady 😁

Man, first impressions... The pictures didn't make her justice! Your work is just amazing!

Now to spend a few hours with her!

Again, thank you so much for all your time  patience and attention to this beautiful work.





I highly recommend ordering a custom build guitar from Jes. 

Your guitar will be built exactly how you want it, with regular updates and photographs as the build progresses, so you always get the opportunity to give input and instruction on your build.



Morning Jes,


The guitar arrived yesterday but I was travelling on business so just got to try it out this morning.


Absolutely lovely to play (the main thing!) and also still in excellent condition (a bonus!)


Thank you so much for preparing it so perfectly for me and for taking such care to protect it in transit. I didn't get a proper Martin case with my first D28 and so I didn't realise the cases they do are so nice!

Basically, delighted with it. A little "brighter" than my existing D28 which I think I'm going to prefer very quickly.


Many thanks and I'd be very happy to buy from you again in the future :)


Best Regards,


Jamie H




Hi Jes,


It's arrived and it's a thing of golden beauty!


Great set up and those p90s sound fantastic...where have they been all my life!


Great guitar.


Thank you.





Hello Jes,


As you probably already know through tracking, I received the Ibanez this morning.


Everything has gone like a great dream.


The guitar has arrived in perfect condition thanks to your packaging.


It only needed a slight tune up and it plays, feels and sounds just right for the kind of things I do with a guitar.


I’m very happy with the Ibanez and all the help and info you have given me.


Thank you very much Jes.


Kindest Regards.






Hello Jes...


I received the custom tele today....most excellent bit of kit..plays beautifully...can't wait to fire up those P90's tomorrow in the studio.


Thank you for the great will be used again I'm sure.


Kind regards
