The Guitar Studio is situated in the historic market town of Hertford and is a specialist shop and music school dedicated to promoting the world's greatest musical instrument - the guitar!
THE SHOP
Founded in 2012 by guitarists Neil and Jessica Drummond, the Guitar Studio was created to provide a relaxed and friendly setting supplying new, used and vintage electric and acoustic string instruments. Alongside being main dealers for exclusive brands as Larrivée, Stonebridge and Washburn, we also stock authentic 19th century guitars (also known as early romantic!). All of our new and used instruments carry a one year repair & set-up guarantee which is handled by our 'in-house' repair shop.

Not wanting to neglect other stringed instruments, we also sell mandolins, ukuleles and violins.
Neil and Jess are always so helpful and friendly. It's like dropping in on old mates!
We have a passion for vintage valve guitar amps which you'll occasionally find in our stock list (generally not for long!), but we also 'speak well' of the current and used range of Randall valve amplification. We're a Marshall Approved Repair Centre and Dave, our in-house repairman will always do his utmost to sort out any 'valve' problem.
LUTHIERY & FINISHING COURSES
Our luthiery (guitar building) course is run at our Dicker Mill workshop in Hertford by Nick Blishen, Course Leader for Musical Instruments at the London Metropolitan University and author of 'Acoustic Guitar Making: the Steel String Guitar'.

The course is currently taught on Saturday and Sunday mornings in 3 hour sessions, the ultimate aim being to build an acoustic guitar from 'scratch' using hand tools. All skill levels are welcome, no experience is necessary.
