About Us


Guitars4You is owned lock stock and barrel by Mark Hopkin. I have a lifetime’s experience in the retail guitar business, going all the way back to 1978. Straight from school, I joined the family business, Wisher (Derby) Ltd. My grandfather and father spent a lifetime in the music business, whilst my father was practically born in a music shop. Over the years, three generations helped to establish Wisher’s as a successful, popular and knowledgeable music shop within the Midlands. Following the sale of Wisher’s to Carlsbro Retail in 1987, I spent a number of years working at Play It Again Sam, Academy of Sound and Mark Hopkin Guitar Gallery. In the summer of 2004, 2 years after the birth of my daughter, Guitars4You was born and now I do what I like and know best

Over 40 years spent in the guitar business ensures that I have acquired a considerable wealth of knowledge and experience, to give me the ability to run my business in the manner that I believe is important to the customer. Key ingredients include the quality of stock, customer service, integrity, a vast product knowledge, along with a competitive price. I live, eat and sleep guitars. Contact Guitars4You and  you are dealing directly with me, my reputation and everything that goes with it

Guitars4You is not another corporate high street music shop, with a showroom, that only offers a selection of new best selling brands. Browse this website and you’ll soon appreciate my passion for cool, classic and vintage guitars. Quality not quantity is a phrase I often use and feel it is very apt with regards to my stock profile

My website is designed to easily allow you to view current stock, with detailed information and pictures of each instrument. This product information is not generated by a computer stock list, or copied directly from the manufacturer’s website, but from my passion, plus vast knowledge and years of experience.  If you require further information then simply give me a call or send an email. The website is updated on a regular basis.
