Curated by James Gascoigne, the 'Home of Tone' is my humble collection of guitars, parts & accessories that have been individually selected to be represented here for their quality, design and the brand in question's shared passion for the guitar.
I certainly don't consider the Home of Tone as re-writing the book on guitar store approach, but instead see this venture as writing my own book about what I love about the guitar; the instrument that has provided inspiration in numerous facets of my life from an early age.
All I hope, is that you find the Home of Tone a place share your passion for guitars with me. The stores name is a bit of fun ultimately, but the intention is from the heart and since the humble beginnings in 2015 it seems there are so many of you that can relate to the approach.
Although I don't have a walk in, high street shop for you to visit, I am 110% driven on making sure you have an enjoyable visit to my webstore and try to be as informative about each of the products as I can be.
I do however also have a small office located in Stourbridge, West Midlands which I am more than happy to offer viewings of guitars or other items by appointment only. So if there is something you're particularly interested in trying out drop me a message and I'll be happy to help.
I also want to share that I set up a monthly donation on behalf of James' Home of Tone and my supportive customers, to 'Blueprint for all' charity. They offer support, guidance and opportunities to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to create a fairer society in which everyone can succeed. Formally known as the Stephen Lawrence Trust, Blueprint for all take off from there really with further help for younger people from disadvantaged backgrounds. I hope that in coming months & years, I can also run fundraising events in further support of this great charity. Thank you for supporting me, James' Home of Tone, and helping making the monthly donation possible.
