Music Shops in Aberdeen

Find the best places in Aberdeen to buy music equipment.

Here at Guitar Lessons Aberdeen, we love a good guitar shop (although our wallets might not!) - to help you find what you are looking for we have compiled a short list of a few of the most important guitar shops in Aberdeen.

Bruce Millers, my personal favourite, sadly closed down in 2011 - a theme that has reoccurred with a number of our guitar shops - so in no particular order, he is a short review of those still standing! In no order...

GJ Guitars

GJ Guitars is a custom guitar shop located in Aberdeen, it is great if you wish to modify your guitar or buy an unusual or unique custom build. Established in 1980 by Graeme, who went full time in 1994 repairing and modify electric guitars, the shop produces some unusual and often great results. The body colour of the guitars looks fantastic, far better than some of the big guitar makes, with the shape of the guitar making them certainly unique. A great custom guitar shop - perfect for your modification needs! (Not so good if you want a cheap first guitar!).
