As from 31 March 2020, Guitars Rock is owned and operated by Conway Paton from Auckland. Conway is semi-retired and a keen amateur guitarist who has been playing (on and off) for 50 years.
Conway is also co-editor of thefall.org, a website dedicated to the English post-punk group The Fall, and a consultant to The Fall’s record label, Cherry Red Records in London.
Conway has taken over Guitars Rock from its founder, Malcolm Kirk, who has decided it’s time to retire. Conway has been a long term customer of Guitars Rock and is dedicated to continuing Malcolm’s outstanding attention to customer service in sourcing and supplying quality high-end guitars and amplifiers to kiwi musicians.
