A wall of @eastmanguitars and @officialgretsch guitars, you say? Ok then! Our refurb job is coming along very nicely, and it's safe to say we can show off these beauties in a much more inviting atmosphere. Gonna be getting more work done (I'm trying to get us a business hammock but I don't think the boss is all that interested) and it's not quite finished yet but things are definitely looking better. #eastmanguitars #gretschguitars #gretsch #eastman #guitars #guitar #shop #shopfitting #classic #vintage #manchester #manchesteruk #uk #england

It's that time of year again, so we're off to exhibit at GNUF - a Grand Northern Ukulele Festival in Huddersfield this weekend. We'll be taking some amazing uke's of all sizes and shapes, plus loads of accessories and sheet music so the attendees can take some goodies home. We've got some tempting offers:
- 15% off our fab range of Lani uke's
- 10% off all uke-ish sheet music when you spend over £15
- 10% off Aquila uke strings.
We're looking forward to seeing all the crazy outfits, old friends and hopefully finding time to hear some amazing uke playing as well. Yes, we won't stop 'till we get 'GNUF!
