About The Music Locker

At The Music Locker we love vintage and rare instruments. Whether you’re after a guitar, amp, accessories or drums you’ll find all the names and brands you’d expect here at The Music Locker – Marshall, Vox, Hiwatt, Watkins, Simms-Watt, Sound City, Vampower, Fender, Gibson, Hofner, Rickenbacker, Tokai, Ludwig and Premier.

All our instruments come to you ready to be played. We clean and service all our instruments and if they need some love and attention, our expert craftspeople restore them to be the very best they can be. We pack and deliver them to you with all the care and consideration these beautiful instruments deserve.

We’re all about the music. The second half of the 20th century was a golden age of music. The instruments from this rock n roll era deserve to be played and cherished into the 21st century. We want to keep that history alive and thriving.

Our story

The Music Locker was formed in 2014 out of an unlikely friendship between veteran business brain Martin and young musician and guitar enthusiast Jono.

Despite their age difference, the two bonded over their love for the history and significance of beautiful instruments. Old mod Martin brings years of seasoned business experience along with a passion for vintage and rare items. Jono started his first eBay business aged just 13 and is an expert on the golden era of guitars and amps (and a pretty good guitar player himself).

Their combined skills, knowledge and sheer love of the instruments is what makes The Music Locker tick.

Our prices and deals

We price our items fairly and realistically. As players and collectors ourselves we don’t put up prices we wouldn’t be prepared to pay ourselves. In a marketplace where silly money can change hands we aim to make all our items as affordable as possible, through discounted prices, part-exchanges, trades or whatever else we can work into the deal.

Whether you’re a novice, expert or collector, we’ve got something to suit your budget. We can stock or source the items on your wishlists through our connections worldwide.
