Where to begin...
Well it started with my Brother-in-Law and Niece both buying guitars from Richard.. They visited the shop, and left feeling confident enough to have their purchases set up and delivered at a later date. For the record, I said they were crazy to buy a guitar 'unseen' as I viewed this as musical Russian Roulette.!
Ok.. I then visited them at Xmas, and found 2 beautiful, perfect guitars: A Faith Neptune Hi Gloss, and a Stonebridge. Both were amazing to play, sounded perfect and were set up to perfection... but I fell in love with the Faith Neptune.. I WANTED ONE!! I then Chatted to Richard on line several times- he is always available, heaven knows when he ever sleeps!?? we discussed guitars and the nature of the universe appertaining to 'Hi-Gloss' versus 'Natural' finishes. The upshot was that I decided on the Faith Neptune Hi-Gloss Electric Cutaway.. and was awarded a 'family' discount (thanks Richard!) My favoured setup was discussed, and I payed online using Paypal, and was given an ETA of 7-10 days.. (don't expect next day from Richard, his guitars are set up before dispatch) I received notification 9 days later, and the guitar was delivered the next day. It was well packaged, and was in perfect condition - It was even STILL IN TUNE!! The sound, finish and action was even better than I hoped for.. and I am now a Richards Guitars convert :-] Do not hesitate to buy from Richard, he has a genuine love of guitars and will delight you with his service and attitude.

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!
