Our Ethos

Established in 2011 WM guitars has set out to always go the extra mile - finding the right guitar for the right individual is key. We strive to create an environment where our customers feel engaged in that process. In our shop we want people to be able to explore our collection, discuss what is right for them and let the instruments speak for themselves, all without feeling pressured.


Our collection has been highly refined over the years, and all our guitars have been hand selected by us with quality in mind. We don’t aim to focus on quantity or to stock every brand we can - we look to provide you with only instruments that we believe have a high build quality, and the years of engineering behind us allow us uphold that standard.

Bringing handmade, independent brands to the South West is something we take pride in, so we aim to establish personal connections with our suppliers; visiting the workshops, speaking with the luthiers, discussing their craft - making sure that every step we take goes toward finding the best instruments we can!

Ryan at Dowina Guitars, Slovakia

Visiting manufacturers and seeing their passion is a huge part of what we believe in. You may not of heard of the brands we supply but you can be assured we've gone the extra mile to find you amazing instruments that are built by incredible people.

The days of big brand domination are coming to an end. With the quality control standards dropping from high output factories and the smaller manufacturers taking real care because of the love they have for the industry. The quality, price and playability are just unparalleled. If you don't believe us then come down to the shop and try some!
