Great Guitars Since 1992.
On October 4, 1992, Pete Oakley opened up his first music store in two spare rooms on the high street in Burton. As a collector, recording artist and performer, Pete has always offered a wealth of valuable advise and guidance to cater for guitarists and acoustic musicians at every level, from beginner to full professional.
Above. Here's Pete in 1992.

"I've always tried to do right by people, and hopefully that has come across"
"One of the key factors to Guitar Superstore's longevity is that the businesses has embraced the internet - and embraced it early on around the advent of the internet. We have reacted to people's expectations of what our business can do the internet has become a really important part of the business now."
"We estimate that the store holds around 1,000 different electric and acoustic guitars at any one time."
