New in Geneva!

Hey there,

I'm an English student living in Geneva for a few months to do some work for a shipping company, and I'm really struggling to find people my own age! Hopefully someone on here will take pity and come for drinks. If not, I look forward to talking to you guys on these forums

Re: New in Geneva!

Also, I'm trying to find a place to buy a guitar after leaving mine in England, any suggestions?

Re: New in Geneva!

I seem to recall from elsewhere that you're in Carouge?
There's a wonderful shop (according to hubbie) specialising in guitars on Rue Jaques-Dalphin, number 51.... called The Works.

Re: New in Geneva!

Welcome!!
I bought my sons guitar in a shop in servette, called servette music. They even have a website (google servette music). I liked the shop and the service. My son's guitar teacher recommended this shop.

Re: New in Geneva!

We looked everywhere in Geneva for an electric guitar, in the end, it was a lot cheaper to buy one from the UK via Guitarbiz and pay the import duty.

I believe there are a couple of music shops in Annemasse, French side of the border, but you'll have to search on the web where exactly. Bound to be cheaper.
