Guitar Shopping S1E1: Bartees Strange

In this first episode of Guitar Shopping, we head down to guitarguitar’s store in the heart of London’s Camden Town with US indie-rocker Bartees Strange. Ahead of his show that evening we spent a few hours casing the store’s well-stocked guitar racks, with Bartees pulling out a variety of cool guitars that caught his eye.

Along the way we meet the stripped-back Epiphone he used to channel his inner Hendrix in front of the mirror when he was a kid, the model that he’s become wedded to for life, the ‘hammer’ design that he thinks might just be the greatest and most versatile electric guitar ever made – and the iconic instrument he uses to noodle on the sofa while watching Antiques Roadshow.

With each new find, you’ll learn more about this unique and inspirational guitar player – and check out some fine and fun guitars along the way.
