Macca Guitars – About Us
Macca Guitars evolved from the adventures and experiences of two successful independent businessmen, Paul Onslow Carey and Piers McBride.
That’s us. Having been members of touring and recording bands since the late 1980s, our passion for the tools of our trade – and our enduring contacts in the USA – enabled us to collect and play many of the guitars we could only dream of as young musicians. Now resigned to the grudging acceptance that 7 nights at the O2 is possibly one ambition too many, we decided instead to turn our passion and experiences into a lifestyle. Our simple goal is to connect other musicians with their dream guitar.
We are based in Clevedon, near Bristol, in the South West of the UK. Our Mission Statement is to buy and sell superb vintage guitars and related items in an ethical fashion, focusing on our customers needs and wants.
What we enjoy most is scouring the world for great guitars. The hunt, the thrill of the chase, the meetings with new people, the missed international flights and the eventual buzz of ownership (albeit temporary). After all, we are merely custodians until the guitar finds you. The playing, the music making, the gigs, the drugs, the groupies – well, we will leave all of that ancillary business to our customers. A fair exchange.
