Whitstable Guitars are based in Kent, South East England
The site is intended to show a selection of good quality used guitars, mainly from Japan & USA that I own but are also for sale.
I set up the website after becoming increasingly frustrated with Ebay as they now only seem to be interested in shops & commercial businesses & by charging ever increasing fees, are trying to squeeze out people like myself for whom guitars are a hobby & who try to offer a good service.
Factoid: Sell something on ebay & they will charge you for the listing & photos, a 10% final value fee & if your buyer uses Paypal you pay an additional 3.4% !! That's a total of nearly 15% & you do all the work !!! Sell a guitar for £400 & say goodbye to over £50 !
I do still use use Ebay UK to sell some guitar parts & accessories & the occasional guitar and can be found under the ebay I/D of "whitstableguitars"
I also spend time restoring, fixing and building the odd guitar and I have documented some of my work here too. Unfortunately I am not able to undertake any customer work at present other than setup, servicing & pickup replacement but look at my "links" where I am now able to point you to a fine guitar tech.All guitars and other items can now be purchased securely & quickly using Paypal
