Merchant City Music Ltd

Merchant City Music was incorporated in November 1992 and started trading soon after. There was two sides to the company when it was formed. There was a recording studio, Apollo Recording, situated in the basement and a ground level shop, selling strings and second hand guitars.

The first Merchant City Music website went live under the guitarstrings.co.uk domain and was one of the first to offer guitar strings to buy online in the UK.

In 2001, the shop, Merchant City Music and website, guitarstrings.co.uk, separated from Apollo Recording which moved to the South Side of Glasgow. The increased space allowed for expansion in the mail order division. The mail order department grew again in 2004 when it introduced a warehouse for holding and sending out stock.

Merchant City Music has always gone that little bit extra for our customers. Not only do we offer the cheapest prices consitently across the board, we also back this up with exceptionally friendly and helpful service that has to be experienced to be believed!

Our extra attention to detail means that every single guitar that we sell has been lovingly set up to the highest possible standards. If its not right well fix it.

In 2006, we have a new website and offer more choice of stock than ever. Through all the changes that have occurred to Merchant City Music over the years, one thing still remains the same: our staff are friendly, approachable and always willing to help.
