"I needed a stack storer for my 7 guitars. The product was very stable and easy to assemble."
"I bought a Brunswick BT200 3/4 length steel string guitar to travel with. These guys delivered it quickly and safely in time for my departure and I have loved having it with me for the last 4 months on the road. It is a brilliant guitar and excellent value at the price that Giggear sold it for (cheaper than anywhere else I could find it). Would thoroughly recommend both GigGear and the guitar!"
"Excellent prompt service and they dealt with all my enquiries professionally. Highly recommended."

"Great staff. Wide range of quality products."
"Excellent products, price and service!"
"The bass arrived well packaged and ready to play after tuning. I had to remove the tone knobs and loosen some screws to remove all of the film on the pickguard. It's there for protection, so I can't really fault it."
"My wife and I have been customers for a number of years. We have purchased many high end guitars and various accessories. You cannot fault the extensive range at GigGears showroom but more importantly the customer service and after sales service is second to none."
"Staff were very helpful and patient with my 9yr old grandson who we were buying an electric guitar for. Would definately recommend Giggear."
