The shop will open its virtual doors on 13 October. You can sign up to be notified when the shop goes live at reverb.com.

Recently, Frampton discussed how he takes a mindful, improvised approach to playing. Speaking to Guitar World, he said: “I don’t really think about or even want to know what I’m going to play,” he said. “I blank my mind out and let it happen.”

“There’s no guitar on the Miles Davis records I listen to, but it doesn’t matter because I’m listening to his choice of notes. And he’ll play one note over seven chord changes, but it’s the right note. It’s so important to me – not how many notes I play but which ones. Some people have told me I never play the same thing twice and I always say, ‘I hope I never do!’ That’s what I want to achieve as a guitarist.”
