In 2012 we welcomed Alec Rafferty to our team. Alec was a time served joiner for 26 years but had a real passion for guitars.
With Alec's experience of repairing guitars we were able to offer services which previously would have to go to the "City" repairers. We are able to offer neck resets, Re-frets, Complete rewires and rebuilds.
John Douglas Music has been supplying musical instruments to the south west of Scotland since 1983. From humble beginnings the shop has grown to become one of the largest and longest running in Dumfries and Galloway, stocking a wide range of instruments and accessories with many more available to order.
The shop is now managed by John Douglas Jnr who along with his friendly and knowledgeable staff will be on hand to help in any way they can to make your shopping experience an enjoyable one. Our website shows just a small selection of product we have to offer so if you do not find what you are looking for please contact us and we will do our very best to source it for you.
It is very rare for a guitar to come in to the shop which is set up as you would expect it to be.
It doesn't matter whether it is a beginner’s guitar or a flagship model from any manufacturer they will all need varying levels of attention.
When you purchase a guitar from us it will be thoroughly examined and set up by our professional team to make sure it meets our customers expectations.
Whether it is a budget entry level instrument, or a prestige work of art, every instrument goes through the same setup process. This unfortunately is not the case with many of the larger "box shifting" members of our industry where a box is sealed in the manufacturers factory and never opened until it has landed on your doorstep.
We have had customers bring in guitars costing upwards of £3000 which required a full fret dress and setup which is, in our opinion, unacceptable.
