I regularly get requests from people asking if I have a particular guitar coming in and asking for notification should one arrive.

Actually, I'm never really sure what will arrive as my guitar stock is made up from part exchanges, purchases I have made from players who are giving up . Guitars that have been left to family members in wills. The list goes on !

Anyway, the best way to keep in touch is to become a site member. It's free & it just keeps you on a mailing list when I send out a message once a month (or two) to tell you about any new or interesting stock I may have .

Please don't worry that I will bombard you with messages as it's me that has to type them all with one finger !! 

Here's a link to the sign up page & a warm welcome to any new members.

Thanks Rob
