33 YEARS THIS YEAR

Guitars Plus is 33 years this year and are now into our 34th year of guitar selling. (8th November 1982 we opened as Musical Repair & Trading Co.) Chris Voce and Ross Nicol along with Ray Luckhurst a friend of Chris's also from London, started it all up and changed the name in about 1991 to Guitars Plus. Arriva Derci Ross - who has returned to his native New Zealand. This is a shot of Chris playing his Edwards Strat (an Eric Clapton Blackie copy) at a Two Dogs gig. Chris and Ross played in the Davey Bros band back in the eighties when this business was established, and Chris continues to gig around the Bayside area today, together with John Benfield, John worked for Roland in the 1980s and was the first rep to visit our store. I can't remember the first guitar we sold, but I can remember the first Gibson - a 1975 Les Paul Special, and the first Fender was a 1968 Candy Apple Red Strat. Thanks to all our many local - and not so local - regular clients and customers, and there isn't a day goes by without meeting a new customer, with a guitar problem, or to come and buy one. We have three generations of customers in the one family around this neck of the woods 33 years is a long time, so our appreciation goes out to all of you. Thanks too to all our many suppliers over the years, especially Sid West, Lamberti Brothers, Jade Sound and Maton Guitars, and also to past employees - too many to name but stand out contributions from Paul Howett, Ray Luckurst, Dan's Hobson, Zylinski, and Hawley and Neale Farnelle Thanks to one and all,
