In 1857 the Forsyth brothers settled in Manchester to help Charles Hallé set up the Hallé orchestra having learned their trade with their father - the factory manager for Messrs Broadwood in Golden Square, described by Beethoven as the “prince of piano makers”. After initially specialising only in Pianos Forsyth soon diversified into supplying Sheet music and all other instruments. Forsyth is still run by the same family (4th and 5th generation) over 150 years later. Forsyth’s reputation for finding and stocking the greatest guitars is unparalleled. From your first guitar to those of a professional standard; we offer a diverse selection each with their own special feel and sound for you to investigate. If you know guitars, you will know we have chosen the best. Lead Guitar Makes and Specialist Models Classicals, acoustics, steel strings, electrics and specialist and vintage models from many of different makers are available here at Forsyth. Our range includes major manufacturers like Martin and Fender through to specialists in high-end handmade guitars such as Lowden and Fylde. Trust our expert staff to find the right choice of guitars to suit your style of playing and budget. Guitar Accessories, Repairs and Servicing Beyond the instruments themselves we also stock a comprehensive range high-quality amps, effects pedals and guitar accessories. If you are having problems with your guitar, our on site repairer can help from basic set ups though refrets to major structural repairs. Call us on 0161 956 2052 ext. 606 now for advice.
