It was 30 years ago today…....

One or Two of you may be interested to know that 30 years ago ( 28th November 1983 ) when I was so very young ( just 24 )  I opened the doors to Machinehead in Essex, feels strange, sad and crazy how time has flown!!!

5 years later Machinehead II opened in Hitchin Hertfordshire.

November 2006 I sold the company.

2008 World Guitars opens in Gloucestershire.

Many thanks to everyone I know who has made my life in music retail for all these years so amazing!!!

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,

” - Darren Nixon, UK

Hi Jeff,

Just a note to say that the 513 arrived safely, yesterday and is everything I hoped for and then some. The picture didn’t do this instrument justice, it’s simply stunning and the tonal range is exceptional.

Many thanks for your excellent service in getting me this guitar. One very happy customer!

“Wow!!!! Just want to say what a fantastic service from these guys. spotted what I wanted late Sunday night and thought I would just send a quick email to enquire.. Quick as a flash Jeff was back to me providing the information I requested, plus more. (does this guy ever sleep?) To cut a long story short I had my fantastic PRS 25th anniversary swamp ash special by Wed morning and rocking with it Wed night thank to these guys. The most wonderful customer service a “proper guitar store” run by human beings not machines. This is my first experience but I know I will be back many more times. WORLD CLASS CUSTOMER SERVICE. Thank you to Jeff and his team for the most wonderful and easy buying experience. CHEERS!!!! J :-))” - John Green, UK

O M G

It’s already here Jeff!!!

And what can I say?

It’s unbelievably awesome!

I’m so glad I went with the Artist V, the inlays and the ebony board are so beautiful. The color is absolutely beautiful. Awesome feel to the neck.

Setup is spot on, arrived here in tune!

I have not had the chance to plug it in yet, but the first dry runs unplugged already had me sold.

I’m more than happy with the guitar.Thank you so much for your help and especially for your great service and the lightning-fast delivery!

I’ll come back to you for sure for my next PRS guitar-wich won’t be far down the road.I’m looking for a popping color or fade finish next, so if you get a cool stoptail non-singlecut Artist package guitar in,or something comparable, it will be mine.

Thanks again and kind regards,

” - Oliver, Germany

Thanks for looking after me so well yesterday. It was the best guitar buying experience possible. Topped off by the chocolate biscuit.The Custom 24 is the best guitar I’ve ever owned, which unfortunately means it could be a while before I need another axe, but those Matchless amps are very tempting, so I may be back soon.

regards

“A super-duper shop run by very knowledgeable guys Jeff and Mark. Not only do they sell great guitars and amps BUT they can also sort out your old guitars too. I gave them my old Gibson 335 which was in a sorry state. I collected it today and it’s AMAZING! New 6105 frets, original pickups reinstalled and a new nut AND a lump taken out of the neck. This is like the equivalent of Simon Cowells numerous face lifts EXCEPT my guitar repair is more successful, looks better and sounds better and even talks more sense!Thank YOU!!” - Jon, UK

Hi Jeff

Just a short note to thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable experience in buying my PRS 513 last month. Its rare to find a shop with such a professional yet personal atmosphere and your encyclopaedic knowledge of your products is nothing short of remarkable and inspires tremendous confidence in spending a not inconsiderable amount of money. The guitar, of course, is a beautiful piece and plays like a dream, exactly as you said it would. But it doesn’t end there - anyone reading this should know that I also brought you my eight month old Fender Custom Shop Telecaster which cost a fortune, but has never been right since arriving from the California. However, it took you five minutes to get it on top form and it now plays beautifully. You succeeded where the Custom Shop failed and such was the transformation that it almost feels as though I got two guitars from you for the price of one!

I can’t understand why anyone in the market for a high-end guitar would not make WG their first and probably only call. Thanks again, Jeff - I’ll be down with my trusty old PRS Custom 22 Artist for you to fettle in a few weeks and no doubt will be buying more in the future.

Best,

” - Bill, UK
