On a recent trip to Scarborough I was introduced by my brother to this wonderful guitar shop called Guitar Galleries. It was closed when we got there but the £10,000 price tag on the Duesenberg guitar hanging up in the window piqued my curiosity.
So the following day I headed back with my brother in tow (to make sure I didn’t spend anything) and asked the friendly proprietor if I could have a look round and takes some photographs. No problem.
Inside the spacious emporium there were walls dedicated to all the major brands. In the electric department alongside Fender, Gretsch, Rickenbacker etc were less popular brands such as Godin and Crimson. The other department featured top of the range Taylor guitars and some tasty Fender acoustic amplifiers.
I was curious who bought these guitars and it seems they have a healthy on-line presence and export around the world. What a wonderful way to spend an hour browsing in a place like this. Magic!
