Welcome to Sound Affects – The Art and Soul of Guitar!

Established in 2008, our small town shop in Ormskirk, Lancashire in the UK has gradually grown to become one of the UK’s leading specialist dealers in high-end, rare and boutique electric and acoustic guitar brands and gear. Whilst the shop has changed considerably since our doors first opened, one thing certainly hasn’t: We will look after you, our customer, to the very best standards and with friendly service and no-pressure advice, we will endeavour to match you with your next perfect guitar (Because – let’s face it – Who stops at one?) – All in a relaxed atmosphere.

We believe that purchasing and acquiring a new instrument is a real occasion and is an experience that should be enjoyed from start to finish, and our goal is to make that so for customers both near, and far – We ship worldwide!

Our Showroom

In early 2014, we moved to our premier showroom in Ormskirk which has become well-known for its themed room layout, which also allows for demoing products in your own space, even when the shop is going through a busy spell. When you visit us, browse at your leisure through our themed rooms.

Our ‘Main Room’, complete with Chesterfield couch, wall-to-wall, houses our most boutique and rare guitars from some of the world’s most revered and respected builders. These include Patrick James Eggle, Joe Knaggs, James Trussart, James Tyler and Music Man as well as pre-owned gems from the likes of Gibson and Fender Custom Shop, Tom Anderson, John Suhr, Nik Huber, Frank Hartung, Collings, Duesenberg, Seth Baccus and Schecter. The room and it’s stock changes each day, so paying us a visit just to see what’s new is well worth it – It’s never the same twice!

Feel free to call in just to look around – We will never give you the hard-sell.
