Who We Are?


Southside Guitars is a literally a shop full of guitars, which is somewhat eccentrically curated by Vince, its founder and owner, who is now joined by Amy, Sinead, and Laura!

Southside Guitars was established in 2013, and was formerly called Southside Secondhand, back when Vince in his naivety thought that general second-hand goods was going to be his calling. My, how things have changed...

The shop is home to many unusual guitars and basses in many brands (plenty you may never have heard of before) from all over the world and if you are in the market something different they may something that fits the bill or might know where to find one.

We have onsite technicians who handle everything from a simple restring to pickup replacements, rewiring, re-fretting and structural repairs.


Our Mission

We try our best to provide a safe environment where questions and enquiry are encouraged. There truly is no such thing as a stupid question. We aim to create an inclusive, comfortable space that encourages creativity and self-expression.

Our Promise

We specialise in the unusual here. If you're looking for wild and wacky instruments, we've got you covered. We strive to to assist our customers in understanding and choosing the right instruments and equipment for the job. We're not your traditional salesmen here at Southside Guitars; no up-selling or haggling.
