About Us

About Us 

Overflowing with all sorts of musical goodies, all somewhat eccentrically curated by Vince the founder and owner. We are Southside Guitars, a Guitar Shop like no other.

Southside Guitars (formerly Southside Secondhand) was established in 2013, back when Vince, in his naivety, thought that general second-hand sales was his calling. But alas, miscellaneous computer parts and collectable biscuit-tins didn't hit the spot quite like Guitars do.

The shop is home to many unusual instruments and accessories from all over the world (plenty you may never have heard of before.)

If you're on the hunt for something obscure or left-of-centre we can bet we have something that fits the bill (or at least will be able to point you in the direction of where to find it.) The only thing we love more than cats is assisting our customers in finding exactly what they need, so we're looking forward to hopefully meeting you in store soon.


Mission Statement​ 

Our aim is to assist our customers in understanding and choosing the right instruments and equipment. At the core, we believe in creating and providing a safe, comfortable, and inclusive environment where questions and enquiry are encouraged; as the only way to learn is by asking questions. Nobody should be discouraged from learning.
