World Guitars is not your average guitar store.
We would 100% not offer this guitar for sale at WG if it was not up to our standard in terms of quality, tone and playability. All guitars are set up by Jeff the boss to perfection and to your specification!! We are not 'box shifters' and we are NOT like a 'supermarket' type guitar store. World Guitars is set in a converted Victorian Magistrates Courthouse - it’s a showroom stocking the best of the best!!
