“I have just bought a Vigier GV Wood from World Guitars.  A pleasure to deal with.  If you want professionalism, quality, great service and the very best guitars it’s the only gig in town!” - John, UK

Hi Jeff,

The guitar landed just over an hour ago and is superb in every respect, including an immaculate setup job  Many thanks for your service. I shall be heartily recommending you to all my guitar playing friends, of whom there are many!

Best Regards as always

” - Dave Millington, UK
“Hi Jeff The strat has arrived all safe and sound. Simply put, it’s perfect. Thanks for setting it up exactly how I like it, it’s incredible to play. From now on World Guitars is the only place I’ll do my “one last guitar” purchasing. Cheers again Jeff, have a great weekend.“” - Craig, UK

Hi Jeff & Smithy

Just a quick note to let you know my guitar arrived safely.

I just wanted to say that I’m absolutely blown away with the guitar.

It plays, sounds and looks fabulous & I’m totally over the moon!

The set-up was excellent (& I really liked your fingerboard cover - never seen one of these anywhere else before!)

This was a significant purchase for me and it was very reassuring to find every aspect of your service and quality exceptional.

Sincere thanks for a great instrument

” - Kyran, UK

Well Jeff,

You have done it again, another beauty that sounds so lovely and with loads of sustain, the Gibson tone is superb and the single coil sounds so nice with Apache and Wonderful tonight.

Theses collectors must want to play them– I could not collect them and never hear their tones.

That’s four guitars we have purchased from you and there all beauties, love your store– it’s just the best.

Thank you once again my friend for looking after us.

Warmest Wishes

” - Ron Summerill - UK

Hi Jeff,

just a quick note to say a huge thanks for the Gibson ES-335 Rich Robinson I received by courier this morning and as well as looking amazing it feels perfectly set up and sounding wonderful.

I get the feeling that although this is the first guitar I’ve bought from you it certainly won’t be the last and I can’t be happier with my purchase.

All the best,

” - Jason, UK

Hi Jeff

Just a quick note to say thank you for my Gibson es-335. This is the third guitar I’ve bought from World Guitars and as usual the service from day one was exemplary. I understand that you must trade to some big name stars and well heeled collectors, but even so as soon as you guys pick the phone up you’re made to feel like an old mate and that you’re in safe hands. Perfectly set up straight out the box, it’s a delight and I’m thrilled with it.

Now all I need is a tasty Les Paul R9 or perhaps a Frank Hartung and I’ll be set!

All the very best,

” - Perry, UK

So happy I made the trip from Hertfordshire to World of Guitars in Gloucester. There I found the best of the best with stunning tops and experienced the relaxed service from Jeff and his staff. I love my new Artist PRS and the very fair price he offered me for my Gibson trade in.

Thank you guys,

” - David Kreeger, UK
“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

” - Iain, UK
“Hi Jeff, Just a few words to thank you for making my recent Tom Anderson purchase so special. I am over the moon with my Hollow Drop Top Classic, it is absolutely awesome. The time and advice you gave me was priceless and I would 100% recommend the World Guitar experience to anyone looking to purchase their dream guitar. Best Regards” - Colin, UK
“Great bunch of blokes helpful and knowledgeable they are down to earth and don’t just shift units they love guitars as well. WG after sales is awesome I know from personal experience. Thanks Jeff” - Stephen, UK
“Definitely an experience walking into World Guitars! WOW! Was made to feel right at home tho and Jeff and the boys were friendly and helpful and made my buying experience an absolute pleasure. Thanks chaps, the guitar is AMAZING! :-)” - Philip, UK

Hi Jeff,

the guitar arrived , WOW it plays amazing straight out the box, set up to perfection, glad I took the day off to play it. Thanks again for such great service , I’m looking forward to my next purchase with you guys and one day I hope to drop by and see the place in person, cheers again Jeff…

” - Johnathan, UK

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.


” - Paul, UK


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

” - Chris, UK

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……..

” - Andrew, UK

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,

” - Mark, UK

Hi Jeff Recieved it yesterday and I have been playing it since :-)

Terrific looks, sound, mojo and not to mention really excellent service on your behalf.

I´m very happy that I chose Worldguitars.

Thanks again. Best regards,

” - Kresten, Denmark
