We buy and sell second hand instruments. We aim to keep broken guitars out of landfill,so we fix and restore them and make them play better than ever.

This Christmas we have decided to plant a Tree for every guitar you buy.So the timber used in your Guitar will be replaced by young, fresh Trees in 2020.

We offer a lovely range of second hand guitars, all of which have unique characters and stories and each sounds and feels so different. All of them are given a Curvy Sounds service when they arrive,so they are fixed and set up to play like a dream.

If you can, come in and test them out,see what suits you!

If you are from further afield and can't come to the shop,but are interested in a second hand guitar,email us at curvysounds@yahoo.com and we will give you an in depth, description of the instrument .
