Noel Gallagher makes first visit to Cheltenham to make a purchase at ATB Guitars
Many people in Cheltenham might not be aware of ATB Guitars that opened mid-2018, but Noel Gallagher is perfectly aware and he travelled up from Hampshire especially to visit the shop and purchase a new guitar on Tuesday 3rd December 2019!
The ATB Guitars shop is appointment only store selling high-end vintage guitars from the 50's and 60's. "We have worked our way up over the years and most people would probably say we are number one in the UK for this niche market. We sell all over the world and have had our Regent St base for around 18 months, which has helped us to grow and expand to its current size," said Mike Long, company owner.
"Noel Gallagher was a charming and down to earth guy who could talk to you about anything, which he did. He chose to have a cup of tea while he was here and left in his chauffeur-driven Mercedes S550 back to his home in Hampshire. It was also his very first ever visit to Cheltenham but he said now he knows we are here, he will be back."
Noel Gallagher bought a 1963 Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins guitar, all original and in near mint condition, finished in orange. So if you are going to see him perform with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds any time soon, do look out for the guitar that came from Cheltenham.
If you would like to work for ATB Guitars, they are currently recruiting a General Assistant. Duties will involve lots of different tasks so you are unlikely to be bored but we are ideally seeking someone who can give us a hand on the social media front as well as taking lots of pics, videos and generally helping out in the day to day running of a comprehensively stocked showroom full of some of the most desirable guitars, amplifiers and pedals around. More details and apply here.
