About Us

We have sold to famous bands, tribute acts, local bands, home guitarists and everyone in between. Guitarsmith was founded by Olly Smith who has been collecting guitars from a young age and has had a diverse career in music, playing in bands, touring and promoting concerts.

Olly has had a lifelong passion for collecting guitars and in 2014 he formed Guitarsmith which specialises in used, rare and desirable instruments. The philosophy behind the company is that we only deal in the instruments and gear worthy of the stage with an undeniable rock ‘n’ roll attitude and sound. We hope you like what we have to offer and hopefully you will find the next bit of gear that will bring you a special bit of musical mojo!

We have a reputation for being the place to find cool guitars. All our stock is ready for immediate dispatch worldwide and are fully tracked and insured. We pack professionally and securely to ensure your order gets to you with the utmost care.

The guy you see in the demo videos is Olly Smith, the lead singer, guitarist and chief songwriter from the Alt Rock band The Vigil. They have enjoyed a storied career to date touring and supporting notable bands such as Puddle of Mudd, Everclear, Therapy?, Anvil, The Datsuns, The Answer,  Unzucht, Toseland and many more. In 2016, The Vigil released their debut album ‘Save Our Souls’ produced by Nigel Pulsford from the band Bush to positive reviews and yielded three singles. Most notably ‘All You’ve Done’ which spent 12 weeks on the Planet Rock play list and the music video was directed by esteemed rock photographer Steve Gullick. They were the first act to play the Amplified festival. In 2019, they recorded the follow-up album ‘Hypervigilance’ recored at Rock Field Studios Monmouth, where Queen recorded ‘Queen II’ and ‘A Night at the Opera’. This was followed by a summer tour with Puddle of Mudd.
