2016 seems like a pretty good year so far to us. We are now situated at 38 Johnston St, Fitzroy in the heart of Melbourne’s most vibrant music precinct. At least half a dozen top live music venues are within walking distance of us.

We encourage you to drop in for a chat and we’ll take you through our extensive range of fine acoustic instruments. We also stock a select range of consignment instruments ranging from saxophones to Gibson Les Pauls. 



We have a couple of pedal steels on the way, a Stage One and an Encore; two Prucha open-back banjos, a couple of Prucha mandolins. There’s a wide selection of Gold Tone banjos, including the long-neck and cello varieties. We have plenty of other banjos too, from entry level to the very best available.

The height of the ukulele boom may be over but we still stock and sell a wide range of ukes, from the cheap and cheerful to high end hand-made Scott Wise ukes. We’re also the place to come if you’re after a fine Australian made guitar by the likes of Jack Spira.

Come and visit us soon – if you’re shopping for a stringed instrument there’s a very good chance we’ll have it.



Selection Of Strings


Guitar Gallery sells stringed instruments of all kinds, mostly acoustic but we do have a select range of electric guitars and even a few things without strings at all…concertinas, flageolets, melodicas, jaws harp, kazoo and nose-flute spring to mind. We stock guitars, of course, as well as banjos, mandolins, fiddles, ukuleles, charangos, autoharps, harps, dulcimers and double bass. We even have a koto in stock at the moment.

We try to stock a range of instruments that are exclusive to us or very nearly so. If you want a handmade uke by Scott Wise, a banjo or mandolin by Jaroslav Prucha or a banjo by Geoff Stelling we are the shop for you.

We have Melbourne’s biggest in store range of Blueridge guitars, amazing quality at an affordable price. We are currently offering some great deals on these fine instruments.

Cremona 3/4 size double bass

We stock Cremona double basses, a fine bass for a very reasonable price. This is the bass that is used at the Grand ‘Ol Opry.

We have many unique and collectible acoustic instruments on consignment, from Gibson mandolins and banjos to 1930’s metal bodies dobros.

Guitar Gallery is managed and owned by Gerry Hale. All staff at the shop are musicians and know all the instruments on our walls and can play most of them. All instruments are carefully chosen, well set-up and competitively priced. Most of our staff teach various instruments or can put you in touch with someone who does.

If your instrument is in need of repair, setups, pickup fitting and minor fixes are done at the shop by Gerry at very reasonable rates. If something more involved is required specialist repairer Nara Demasson picks instruments up from us twice a week. Call us, email us or inquire in store regarding your particular needs.

We also have a huge range of strings for all the instruments we stock and then some more…if you are looking for some strings for your charango, Irish bouzouki, dulcimer, guitarron or cello banjo we can sort you out. And we love a challenge.

If you are unable to visit us in person you can check our online catalogue and call us or email us to make a purchase.  Any orders over $500 we will ship free of charge. Currently we are unable to sell items less than $500 to overseas customers.
