The only one I've visited is the Sound Control under Virging Megastores (which is now Zavvi I'm guessing). I can't remember what it was like, but I just rememeber a sign saying 'People who play Sweet Child O' Mine will be ejected from the premises' or something like that...

carefull with denmark street. they tried to sell me an ibanez s470dxqm for like £1300 pounds. when the guitar is only £500 maximum. so just a little warning.

I went there just after christmas, quite good shop i must add. Got a decent selection of guitars, not enough amps though IMO in my opinion.

PMT in Romforf(not really london but what the heck, might as well say it anyway) is pretty good, not big though, but still quite good.

I bought my S470 there for £420 :P

Zavvi on Oxford Street is like a minute's walk from there so you can visit both. Turnkey (or 'Soho Soundhouse') just down the road has some great amps and nice guitars too. Sound Control is the best for amps and high-end guitars (Only shop around there that stock PRS as far as I know), Rockers is the best for guitars all-round and Turnkey has a nice mix.
Wembley Guitar Center has a really nice selection of amps but a piss-poor range of guitars. If you go to Wembley Stadium, its right near there.
