About Old Hat GuitarsI can’t really describe what it’s like to own a vintage guitar shop, especially if you have an affliction called G.A.S. – guitar acquistion syndrome. Conventional therapy i.e. guitars on show to be played, displayed, bought and sold, swopped from new to covered in cobwebs from age.

The shop as it is actually takes it a stage further with a large and varied stock of amplifiers, both US and UK origin dating back to the early 40s, often with matching guitars.

We have a very experienced guitar tech, and cover everything from setups to resprays. Also an excellent amptech for repairing or servicing any amp.

The shop is open Thursday to Saturday 11.30 am to 5.00 pm, or otherwise by appointment. Telephone 01507 525327 or mobile 07882681911 or 07850 802219. If you are calling from outside the UK the numbers are 00441507 525327 and 00447850 802219. Ask for John Jnr, John Snr, Dave or Norman – and remember we like a swindle or a swop.

We consistently pay good cash prices for used or vintage guitars and amplifiers in any condition, just call us we cover the country.
