The Best Guitar Shop in Bristol
Professional Music Technology is renowned for its esteemed reputation as a premier guitar shop, and you’ll find nowhere better than PMT Bristol to satisfy your 6-stringed cravings or get your first guitar.

Alongside the axes, there is a massive range of guitar amplifiers, guitar accessories, guitar pedals, straps, guitar strings and anything else you might need to keep your creative juices flowing. There are also plenty of used and pre-loved guitars to choose from our part exchange service, so if you’d like to paw over someone’s old gear or even come in to the shop and swap your old equipment for something new and shiny, give us a call.
