This is the first year that the public has been able to vote in the Best Independent Retailer category and the winners will be announced at the MIA Music Awards in association with NAMM, on Wednesday 30 November at The London Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel.
Founder, James Oliver said "It has taken time, and we are trying a different, more modern approach to guitar sales in the UK, and it is great to be recognised."
Guitarbitz, based near Frome in Somerset was created in early 2004 to cater for the UK’s 3 million guitarists, with a view to creating an internet guitar shop that could cater for guitar players of all levels, but with particular help for beginners and intermediate players, with clear product descriptions and photographs, easy navigation and no techno babble! As well as the shop, Guitarbitz has dedicated mail order facilities and large stocks of products. The shop, in Frome opened in the Autumn of 2007, giving customers the opportunity to visit us and try out our large range of guitars, amplifiers and accessories.
