Yup, that's the one! I bought a Squire Bullet with one humbucker and a tiny Marshall amp 3 days after arriving. I couldn't take not having a guitar any longer!

Gladesville Guitar factory - they may seem overpriced, but they always give you massive discounts if you go in and ask.

I'm in Casula! (Liverpool) And don't go to Bava's. They know nothing about guitar or music equipment in general other than keyboards.

Wow, so many Sydneysiders here! Awesome.

Most of the better guitar stores are in and around the city and parramatta, some are:
Gallins Guitars
Guitar Factory (awesome shop)
Venue Music
Global Vintage (great shop next to QVB for boutique pedals and nonsense)
Billy Hyde (good range, but I hate Billy Hyde and their arrogant workers)
Allan's Music (see Billy Hyde)

My local is Maxx Music in Castle Hill though, i'm within walking distance. Also, go to Parramatta Rd near Annandale. Gallins is there, plus there are 4 other guitar shops in a row in that vacinity. Plus, Annandale and Agincourt Hotels are there, great live venues for local bands.

I don't really like bavas that much, and in my experience the only twats i've encountered in a music shop was at guitar factory in parramatta.

I also love billy hyde because i get a student discount :P

I'd say that rings fairly true, but i know one of the guys who works there who knows his shit about guitars, so maybe you got the wrong people at the wrong time.

Just on another topic, is there anyone here that goes to AIM?

Yeah all the good stores have basically been mentioned. Although if you're ever in the Windsor/Hawkesbury area you should check out River Music. That's my local store and although they don't have the greatest range of stuff, the staff are awesome.

I went to Liverpool Westfield at the begining on this year.. Scary place..

The only music shop I've ever been to in Sydney was Mall Music at Warringah mall... I thought it was pretty good, but as I said, it's the only one I've been to in Sydney..

Agree. I used to go there some days after school, not that good.

Also in Liverpool, there's Anthonys' Music, which is just down another road from bavas. (But still just as rubbish) :p

drummer's dream in campsie/belmore.

they sell esp's and gibsons and stuff.

edit: to stratpat: i agree, the annandale staff are way more friendly than the parramatta people.
Sincerely,

Okay, well I thought Parra were friendly.
Then Annandale must be super doooooper friendly, so go there.
Either way, Billy hyde owns.
