If you are taking a guitar on holiday with you or to a festival this summer then don't leave home without a guitar tuner! With prices starting at just £7.95 there's no excuse for a dodgy sounding guitar! We use the Tanglewood chromatic tuner to tune all of our guitars before sending them out because of its ease of use and longeivity. We also have an ideal festival guitar for you to take with you!

Looking for a Les Paul under £250?

The Sammick Avion has a great looking and traditional arch top design, popular with guitarists of all styles, and still brings in a style all of its own. The arch top adds weight, but the extra rigidity under the bridge improves string sustain and gives it an authentic quality. Grover tuners, covered humbuckers and a tune-o-matic bridge all bear resemblance to the features of a top quality Lea Paul - except the price, only £235 The Epiphone Les Paul Studio is the first in Epiphone?s range of Les Paul guitars to feature a set neck, giving it the classic profile and feel of a Les Paul, and contributing to its great tone. In addition to this, the Studio has open Alnico classic humbuckers, designed by Epiphone for ultimate tone and sustain. With a set of Grover tuners (the leading name in machine heads) and separate volume and tone controls for each pickup it?s clear that this is the best value and most authentic of the entry level Les Paul models. £249 The patented Aria PE Elit

What noise does a Crybaby make?

what noise does a crybaby make? If your solos need a bit more oomph to get wailing then the Dunlop Crybaby Wah effects pedals are the answer! We have selected two of them endorsed by heavy metal gods Zakk Wylde and the late Dimebag Darrell Dimebag Signature Crybaby Effects Pedal £159 Designed in conjunction with Pantera guitarist, the late Dimebag Darrell, the Dimebag Signature Crybaby from Hell is a hot rodded wah pedal combining classic Dunlop technology with practical modern features and mean looks. A rugged metal camouflage casing, top grip and rubber feet to prevent slipping during heavy footwork - this pedal has been designed with the gigging guitarist in mind. For ease of use on stage the pedal can be switched on and off by a hard push down and bright green and red LEDs give clear indication of its mode. Using the torque clutch you can control the amount of resistance the rocker has to being depressed and so the pedal can be adjusted for comfort and control.
