Scotland's Leading Pre-owned &
Vintage Guitar Specialists

We Know Our Lemon-Bursts

At The Guitar Trade Centre, we are passionate about guitars. Our team has extensive knowledge and experience with all types of guitars, from vintage to rare, and we are always happy to share that expertise with our customers.

Why Pre-Owned?

Glasgow and Scotland as a whole has always had a thriving music scene. From the hordes of musicians that live here, to muscians from all over the world who visit, or all of the bands that play here from individual singer songwriters up to the big bands touring and playing the Hydro etc.

Glasgow has the usual big guitar retailers selling all of the big branded, new products but what it has been missing until now is The Guitar Trade Centre. A thriving business that are specialists in the Pre-owned market.

An "Old School" guitar shop that loves to build rapport with its customers and hear the stories of old. The personal touch AND a vast array of quality, pre-owned guitars as well as the vintage and rare. (We currently have 8 PAFS in the shop at the time of writing this AND a fair few 50s Gibsons to boot). To coin a phrase from a recent customer "You don't get gear like this in the shops in the other shops!"

Lots of players have fallen out of love with the experience of buying a big brand from the bigger shops and the continual price increases, as well as the low prices they get for trading in their previously loved guitar related gear at the bigger retailers.

Whats the solution? Dont buy from a big retailer a "Box shifter as our customers call them". Come to a family run, independent guitar shop who care about its customers, who will strive to give you the best possible deal on your deal, or aim to find out about you, your needs and get the right guitar in your hands. New Guitar Day should be good experience and we aim to make it the best we can.

Wide Selection
