Music shop like they used to be when I were t'lad...
Review by confirmed purchaser
Steven James Guitar and Amp was recommended to me by a friend. I'd be perfectly happy recommending them to anyone on the same basis. As a shop their prices are fine, but it's their customer service which stands out. You won't be rushed into any sales, and lets face it, some of our purchases can be big so you most certainly DON'T want to be rushed! I recently acquired a new PRS Mira S2 to replace my 10 year old Strat. Steven James helped immensely - initially I was looking at the latest Studio Les Pauls for their workmanlike build and sensible prices (given the number of gigs I do, paying £2-4k for a decent Les Paul can't be justified). After spending an hour or two in the shop talking, playing, listening, it became obvious that the Gibbo's just don't cut the mustard. I'd read reviews in Guitartise of the new S2's and they were in stock, so it was a chance to have a look at them. There was also a fab second hand < a href='http://www.gordonsmithguitars.com/'>Gordon Smith> Les Paul in which I missed out on but that's another story. Anyhoo, I liked the Mira and ordered it, and it's a great guitar which I could have missed out on without time spent at Steven James. Now I'm looking for a new amp, and I think it's time for another visit...
