Wild Guitars

393 Archway Road Highgate London N6 4ER

Owner Dave Wild says he will sell anything with strings on. But what makes this a pilgrimage for guitar aficionados is the hand-picked selection of vintage axes: beautiful Fenders and Rickenbackers from the 1960s and 70s, rare Gibsons and the odd cast-off that once belonged to a star or celebrity, all set up perfectly by Wild, whose services as a guitar-fixer and repairman have been hired by rock royalty such as Pink Floyd and Coldplay. Other bygone gems include valve amps and effects pedals, plus a small selection of new guitars and basses, ukuleles and mandolins, quality guaranteed. One of Highgate’s unique shopping experiences.
