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

Our big announcement on February 1st

We have some exciting news which we will share with everyone on February 1st. Keep checking our website, FB or Instagram Page for more news.

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.


We are OPEN on Sundays from November 5th, 12-4, and everyday up until Christmas, so why not pay us a visit.


We’ve just taken delivery of some new products including the Boss RV500 reverb pedal, the Boss Katana Head and a range of Xvive guitar pedals. Feel free to come into the store and try them out. 

Breedlove Mandolins Back In Stock

A range of Breedlove’s Crossover mandolins have just arrived in store.

The Breedlove Crossover OF was designed to appeal to guitarists, but it will no doubt be appreciated by many experienced mandolinists too.

The switch to all-solid woods – not just a solid top, but the back and sides too – is a significant upgrade for the Crossover series. There’s a richness and complexity to the Crossover’s voice that you simply won’t hear from laminated wood mandolins, and while the small size of a mandolin’s fretboard may be a shock to some who are completely new to the instrument, the Crossover’s playability is excellent with its low action and the 12″ radiused 1 3/16″ fretboard.

These are a great range of mandolins which will just improve with age, given their all solid wood contruction.

They start from £599, come with a gigbag, and our 2 year servicing warranty.
