“Friendly Customer Service”

Written on: 31/01/2014 by aridnexus (1 review written)

Recently had a problem with my guitar and I was told they offer a repair service so I contacted them on Facebook and the reply was quick and friendly. Went into the store the next day and it turns out the problem was a really simple fix so he didn't charge me. He even cut the excess sting off for me as I'd just had them changed. I would definitely recommend using these guys… Read Full Review

“New Sheraton II”

Written on: 14/01/2014 by CraigBoyack (1 review written)

I ordered my new Epiphone Sheraton II on Monday morning and by Tuesday it was wth me in Aberdeen. Aswell as a great delivery service, the guitar was professionally set-up for me by the gentleman himself at no extra cost. After looking at countless numbers of on-line stores (as my local store was not competitive), i'm very pleased I went with him and North East… Read Full Review

Recently bought a PRS custom 25th anniversary from the store, my first big purchase, but before that it was my go to for restringing, setups, info and just about everything else even vaguely guitar related. It seems to me that I have spent more time in the shop than out, something that i bet the staff will all agree on! The customer service is brilliant, the guys are very friendly, even as a beginner ive felt perfectly comfortable sitting and playing on the beauty amps and guitars, of which… Read Full Review

“Best deal just down the road!”

Written on: 04/11/2013 by nwheldon (1 review written)

Spent weeks searching for a Rickenbacker on ebay. Why take chances driving to London or Southampton to find out its not how it looks in the photos? Do I trust getting it delivered by a parcel company and having the hassle of sending it back if it's not quite right? No chance! Went into the shop and got best deal in the world! No pressure, staff who knew what they were talking about. "Take it upstairs, try it out and if you don't buy it you can still have one of my fresh olives!"… Read Full Review

“Buying Guitars at North East Guitar & Amp Centre.”

Written on: 09/06/2013

I have only been to Steven James' Guitar and Amp Centre twice now and I have got to say that the service there is fantastic. First of all; The staff are fantastic. Really friendly and also really helpful. If you don't know that much about guitars wether it is because you are a beginner or just never really took that much notice, the staff have no problem explaining the key parts to a guitar and also giving a demonstration of the instrument you wish to buy. Infact, they will even let YOU have a… Read Full Review

“Only popped in for strings...”

Written on: 28/05/2013 by benlace (1 review written)

but now I know where I'll be popping in for my next purchase. There's a proper music shop vibe where there's no pressure to buy, the staff were all really cool and they're eager to talk kit and the gear they have blew my socks off. It was my first visit to the shop but it won't be my last, I'm really tempted by a PRS SE Tremonti that I had great fun playing and sounded wonderful through a Blackstar amp. I've now found a new favourite place to visit on a Saturday afternoon… Read Full Review

“Great Guitar, Great Price, Great Service”

Written on: 25/02/2013 by PeterS1 (1 review written)

Rang the store on Thursday, looking to buy a new Les Paul. I got really friendly and professional advice and service, so ordered a Gibson Les Paul 60's Tribute with min-e-tune system. Guitar arrived on Monday, as promised, professionally set up and in immaculate condition. Really chuffed to bits with the guitar and the service I received. This will be one of the first places I look, when next in the market for more gear. Many thanks… Read Full Review
