Well its all getting very exciting for me now - nearly there! But not quite!
So I have all the hangers up and have a lot of the stock on display and will have this completed by Friday evening.
We have the workshop all set up - we just need to fix a few things to walls here and there.
The sign writer has started work on the front of the shop and fingers crossed this will be largely completed by Friday night too.
Also on Friday I have some cleaners contracted to clean the in and outside of the windows and exterior walls which are filthy from the grime off the road.
So by Saturday I should possibly resemble a working operation! Hoooraaa! But I will keep you posted.
I have this idea for stacking guitar boxes around the perimiter of the rooms and hiding them behind curtains (its hard to describe!) but that will take a little while to get arranged - can't do everything at once however much I try.
IF you were considering visiting on Saturday I would just warn you that the private parking is literally being "block paved" and landscaped ( I kid you not!!!!!) and is full of workmen etc.
I will certainly give you another update and some pictures when its all done but as of Monday I am certainly back to being operational in store.
Ohhh its all exciting stuff and really looking forward to giving you all the green light - but don't visit until I feel comfortable ok? Well.... its up to you of course. Just dont moan at me if the signs arent up, or prices arent on the guitars or you cant park your car.... do I worry too much?

To ensure anyone can benefit from this highly personalized service we subsidize the delivery costs from our pocket - not yours, resulting in the following delivery charges*
Any delivery to Western Europe £15.
Eastern Europe £25
Every guitar is packed personally by Richard. We purchase especially strengthened outer cartons and pack each guitar in a way that guarantees the guitar will come out the box as it went in - perfect.
If you bought your guitar from an alternate source it would cost you at least £50 to have it play to the standard that we set our guitars AS standard.
Why would you want to buy from a faceless online store if you can buy from someone who values every customer and their personal needs?
I do hope we can help you further as we provide the service you wish you could find locally!
