From the very beginning Jimmy has believed
(Jimmy Egypt’s) Guitar Repair Shop is owned and run by James Cannell. It is the largest and most specialised guitar and fretted instrument repair store in Scotland.
Jimmy Egypt is the alter ego of James Cannell, owner of Guitar Repair Shop.
James M Cannell BA Hons is a trained product and furniture designer with an Honours Design Degree from the world renowned Glasgow School of Art. Following graduation he established a guitar-making business along with his friend Maurice Bellando. Egypt Guitars were in business for 3 short years and manufactured a range of very high quality and originally styled guitars and bass guitars with suitable egyptian names which some say were ahead of their time. There’s more information on Egypt Guitars here.
After Egypt Guitars, Jimmy put his degree to use working as a designer and manager in the furniture industry before an opportunity arose to reconnect with the music industry in a modest way, by carrying out guitar repairs for a local music shop. From 2008 to 2016 Jimmy was a joint owner and co director of CC Music.He no longer has any association with this company.
