“Dear Mr Jeff (….and Mr Smith)I would like to thank you very much for your personal attention and helping to sort out my purchase of the ES 335.The guitar arrived yesterday and I am thrilled. It is a wonderful instrument and I can really appreciate the time you have taken to prepare the guitar. It looks tremendous, it sounds amazing and it plays effortlessly……Which is quite an achievement for a sausage fingered git like me. Attention to detail and the obvious fact that you LOVE what you do really comes across in your videos, talking with you on the phone and most importantly in the instruments you prepare. I am very glad you came out of retirement and one day I hope to visit your establishment in person…..Although that might be very dangerous for my bank balance!I wish you continued success and a Merry Christmas.Best regards,Lorenzo Stella” - Lorenzo Stella, UK

Hi Jeff,

I just wanted to thank you for the gold top. It arrived safely yesterday and it’s absolutely stunning.

It’s immaculate, the setup is perfect and it looks and sounds way beyond my expectations.

Thanks for being a pleasure to deal with. I’m sure you get it all the time but it was a truly unique and refreshing experience compared to dealing with the nationwide retailers. If I’m ever allowed to buy another guitar (I really need to buy the wife something nice now) I’ll certainly be looking to World Guitars in the first instance and hopefully next time I can come down to visit in person.

All the best

Dear Jeff,just a quick email to say that the Dave Gilmour Custom Shop Strat. has just arrived by courier. Thank you and your team for a Rolls Royce customer service experience. The guitar is in immaculate condition as is the case. The set up is spot on, what more can I add? Highly recommended.

Cheers,

” - Paul, UK

Jeff,

not a query but a thankyou for my most memorable guitar buying experience yet. I’m not an experienced musician by any stretch of the imagination but you were brilliant today and i can’t thank you enough for putting my most wanted guitar in my hands in the form of the tremonti custom.

I don’t know whether you have a “testimonial” section to your website but i can honestly say i will be visiting again when i need equipment and that i would highly recommend you and your store to anyone looking for high end guitars and great no pressure service which was informed and honest.

Once again my sincerest thanks and i look forward to seeing you and the store again in the future.

Best regards

Hi Jeff,

The Raven has landed…..! Just delivered by UPS and it’s absolutely stunning. I’m delighted with it.

My 4th Anderson guitar and they never disappoint. As a new model the Raven is just sensational and this sexy sunburst number has blown me away. I can’t wait to plug it in and get playing.

Thanks for your first class, personal service. (Great set-up by the way - just as I had requested). Keep doing what you do because nobody else comes close to providing such a specialised service - focusing purely on the very best, high-end instruments for the serious, discerning buyer. All backed up with an unparalleled level of knowledge, expertise and personal commitment.

Until next time…..!

Best regards,

” - Steve, UK

Hello Jeff.Want to thank you again for for helping me acquire three of the best guitars I have ever owned. (You could probably guess I’ve had a few good’ens). The pleasure I will get from playing these in the coming years is almost sad & perverse. They are definite keepers.

THANK YOU.Wishing you & yours all the very best……..

Jeff - many thanks for your help/service with my order for the Vigier G.V. Wood. World Guitars = a great company to deal with! Nice surprise/bonus getting the USB in the post too! And I received the spares :-) This sort of service is definitely what makes people come back to you I’m sure.

Best regards,

I’m very proud to own two stunning guitars from the magnificent WORLD GUITARS catalog :)

I love my free gift too, absolutely delighted to receive such a cool unexpected surprise … your customer service is as excellent as your guitars ….

Until the next time ,

Carlsberg don`t do guitar shops,but if they did they would struggle to better World Guitars.

Let`s face it, World Guitars is not your regular High street music shop.

Jeff runs a business for the discerning player or collector who after years of experience beginning with learner instruments and then onto intermediate levels have developed a deep appreciation of what makes their ultimate/dream guitar and/or amplifier.

As one would expect, none of these items will ever be considered a casual purchase as for most people in the `real world` they represent a considerable investment.That the buying experience should prove so rewarding and the level of customer service so unrivalled I would not even consider another retailer.I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting Jeff or Mark in person but already we are each greeted like old friends.

Become part of the World Guitars family and join the long list of Jeff`s happy and indeed repeat customers.

Jeff, thank you and wishing you continued success..

Hi Jeff,

Just wanted to thank you for the memory stick photos, which are the “icing on the cake” of the perfect experience I had, from start to finish, in buying my PRS guitar from World Guitars. I’m very appreciative of the time and consideration given to assist me in making the best possible choice. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Very many thanks to you and your team.

Kind Regards,

” - Henry, UK

Hi there Jeff , just to let you know the guitar did arrive on Tuesday , just managed to collect it from the carrieras I was heading out the door to work at 5.30pm

Got the parcel opened up at midnight that night and nearly fell over when I opened the special 25th anniversary caseThe guitar is absolutely stunning , the maple 10 top looks fantastic in real life , much better than in the photos.

You had advertised the guitar as virtually unplayed , but you certainly undersold this as it is in pristine condition and I doubt if I could tell it from a new model .

Finally got it fired up yesterday and spent all day playing and comparing to my other guitars . 1st the action was spot on , the playability and tone just amazing . Love the lightness of the guitar , don’t know why but my Les Paul weighs an absolute ton in comparison . Have to say you were right about the quality of the PRSguitars , if this is representative of their standard those artist guitars must be unbelievable .

Anyway just wanted you to know I am more than satisfied with my purchase and the whole process went very smoothlyIt was a pleasure talking to you personally and knowing you have taken such care in helping me with this purchaseI would happily recommend your company to anyone looking to purchase a quality guitar

Thanks again , the Angry Larry guitar is as Stevie Ray once said now my ” Pride and Joy ” and I’m now the envy of all my other guitar playing friends

“I took delivery of my Tom Anderson Cobra S this afternoon after waiting patiently since last October when I placed my order with Jeff from World Guitars.From my very first visit, Jeff and his team have made the buying process a delight. There was no ‘selling’ going on, just pure honesty and passion for the craft of making excellent Guitars and finding new homes for them. It is clear that Tom Anderson manufactures quality products but also cares about their customers. My build slot was agreed for March and during the process of specking the Guitar, Jeff was there for advice and guidance and was in constant email contact. I even had emails direct from Tom at the factory when we were agreeing the colour for the quilted Maple top. That is dedication to customer service and excellence in production.Testament to what Jeff and Mark say about Tom Andersons was the fact that the guitar was set to perfection and even in tune after a 5,500 mile trip from the States! Jeff plugged it in for me without any hesitation and it played like a dream. I have ordered my personal World Guitars USB with the photographs taken by Mark today, and that will be on its way to me soon.If you have never seen the stunning collection of Guitars at the shop then get down to meet Jeff and the team, you will not be disappointed. If you are an existing customer then I am sure that you know what I mean when I say thanks for making day! Now…….what’s next?” - Keith - UK

Dear Jeff,

I just wanted to send a message of thanks for looking after me yesterday and to say how pleased I am with my new guitar. Its tone, sustain and sheer liveliness are amazing; I didn’t put it down until midnight.

Your shop is amazing too, something really special and I wish you success and enjoyment in equal measure.

All the very best,

” - Mike, UK

World Guitars,

Just want to say a massive thank you for the PRS Custom 24 - Fire Red. It arrived nice and early on expected delivery date and in perfect condition too … Courtesy of UPS.

I absolutely love this guitar …. Sounds and looks stunning. The set up is perfect, I didn’t stop playing it all weekend … Really didn’t want to go back to work this morning!

The photographs on your website definitely did it justice. However, to hold the guitar in my hands … WOW!

Once again many thanks for your outstanding service and for supplying what is now my # 1 guitar.

Best regards,
