Knaggs Hard Case, Certificate and Strap Loks


We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.

Hi Guys I just wanted to send an e-mail to say thank you for the excellent customer service and an amazing guitar. I ordered a John cruz designed Custom Shop Stratocaster with Julian who was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The guitar arrived the day after I ordered it and when it arrived it was set up perfectly. I have owned a few Stratocasters in the past including  Custom Shop but this guitar is by far the best. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. This is the 3rd guitar I have bought from yourselves and all of them have been amazing. Keep up the good work guys. World Guitars is second to none. Many Thanks

Gary, UK
