Martin guitars are the premier acoustic guitar brand on the planet, and along with our 2 year servicing warranty that we offer, it’s a great combination.

Feel free to visit our first floor acoustic guitar area and we’d be happy to show you the range of Martin guitars on display.

New Stock

Some new stock arriving this week includes the new range of guitar effects pedals by Fender. New pedals include the Pugilist Distortion £87, Santa Ana Overdrive £160 and the Marine Layer Reverb £110. They look great and sound amazing.

Also arriving are some new Squier strat and tele models by Fender. Forward-thinking and progressive, Squier Contemporary Series models are modern through and through – from the aesthetics to the contemporary features. Premium styling cues include chrome pickup covers, eye-catching matching painted headstocks and zebra pickup bobbins on select models. The series also features metallic finishes in Dark Metallic Red, Black Metallic and Ocean Blue Metallic, among other colours.

More new stock arriving next week.

Shop Opening

We’re excited to announce that our new shop at 49 Church Street will open on Friday the 23rd of February.

This will follow on from our current shop at 27 Church Street being closed on Wednesday and Thursday, to allow us to move. We hope this doesn’t cause too much inconvenience.

We’re all hoping for a dry day, although it’s not too far between shops!

We look forward to welcoming customers old and new on the 23rd, and in the future.

We’re on the move

It is with great excitement that we can announce our move into new premises, at 49 Church Street, Inverness ( formerly The Music Station).

Having been in our current shop since 1992, we see this as a fantastic opportunity to expand our business, and improve customer experience.

We look forward to welcoming all customers old and new when we open our doors at the beginning of February ( exact date to be finalised).

We’d like to thank Brian for his support over the last few months, and wish him well with his future plans.

From all the staff at The Music Shop

Squier by Fender Stockist

We are pleased to announce that we are now the stockist of Squier by Fender Guitars and Basses. The range is slowly building up in store, so why not pop in and see what’s new.

Here’s a little bit of history of the brand.

Fender acquired U.S. guitar string manufacturer the V.C. Squier Company in 1965; by 1982 the Squier name had resurfaced as a low-cost “value brand” alternative initially manufactured and distributed in the Japanese domestic market and soon offered to Europe, North America and the rest of the world.

At the time, many other established brands offered affordable copies of classic Fender models including the Stratocaster®, Telecaster®, Precision Bass® and Jazz Bass® guitars. When Squier versions of these instruments appeared, demand for them as the “official” cost-conscious alternatives was immediate, and a brand name was reborn.

To maintain and control costs over the years, Squier instruments have been produced in several nations, including Japan, Korea, India, China, Indonesia and Mexico. While the brand has produced its share of innovative designs over the past 25 years, its main focus and most successful approach has always been to be the “value brand” alternative to its big brother, Fender.
