And another one is biting the dust - Sounds Great Music in Heald Green. I’ve bought over a dozen guitars there over the years and, although it’s had its ups and downs (losing the Taylor franchise, stopping doing Collings when the prices went up) it’s always been, for me, the epitome of the small independent shop that was worth supporting. The owner is retiring and it’s closing at the end of the year. geddarby did you know?

In recent years Ivor's has also specialised in Santa Cruz and there have been some fabulous guitars there. They concentrated on the more affordable models where TNAG seems to go for the collector's end.
I've been going in there ever since I was a teenager.

Ivor's had some good budget/mid range guitars in there as well, 'Vintage' (the brand), Eastman & Guild with guitars over a few grand as well (eg Brook, Santa Cruz etc). Some very well priced electrics as well.
