An Ipswich music shop owner has spoken of his excitement at becoming the only one in Suffolk selling new Ed Sheeran guitars. 

John Fender, owner of Music World in Queen Street, says the Sheeran by Lowden guitars "have definitely brought people into the town" since going on sale on Friday.

The guitars range from £549 to £899, and can also be used by younger musicians. Mr Fender said: “We're excited to have them.”

The Framlingham-raised musician, who has recorded a comeback gig at Snape Maltings, also started the Ed Sheeran Suffolk Music Foundation, ESSMF, as a way to help young people in Suffolk get small grants for instruments and studying music.
