Vintage & Rare Guitars

11 Queen Street, Bath BA1 1HE

Perhaps more a place for wannabe rock gods than serious shoppers (most guitars start at £1500), V&R is still worth a visit for its mouthwatering selection of limited-edition electric guitars, acoustics, basses and lap steels. Big guns vying for attention include Fender, Gibson, Rickenbacker and Gretsch, but there are also plenty of effects, plus a cool range of vintage 50s and 60s amplifiers. And if the stripped 1964 Fender Stratocaster is a little out of your league at £6000, then you can always settle for one of the store’s own Vintage Kit Ts for a mite more manageable £25.
