Pretty slim pickings but

John Bellones on York Street close to downtown
The Guitar Shop on Richmond - downtown
Matts Music - on Wellington also close to downtown.
There's also a Walters Music in Masonville Mall but their primary focus is pianos. They do carry low to mid range guitars and peavey amps.

I was in London last week on vacation and dropped into Matt's; they had a good selection of guitars and seemed to be well priced, but no "main stream" brands, just Parker and PRS and Washburn and Hagstrom and a couple of others. I had a great visit and played my first, second and third Parker Drool and a new Hagstrom swede:smile: I really enjoyed it.

I seem to remember a thread on this last year. One fellow who lived in London said he had to go to Kitchener to find a decent store.

Trust me...nothing worth going out of your way for. But every now and then Rockhouse Music has some neat stuff but it is hit and miss. Lou the owner is a great guy though! But do yourself a favour and pass on The London Guitar Shoppe unless you like crappy service and rude salespeople.

You were right about London Guitar Shoppe,...I was there for about 25 minutes, and nobody even acknowledged that I was there...........:eek:

LOL, I told you so! The sad thing is, a few years back before those jerks worked there...it was actually a great store. I don't know how they survive from being fired considering all the potential sales they have lost.

Yeah, I can't figure out how London Guitar Shoppe keeps its doors open. Ultimate classic example of all the wrong things to do in a retail environment. Both those cheeseheads need turpentine enemas.-Eric
