We strive to carry quality instruments at a wide range of price points as well as a variety of accessories and hardware.
Whether you want to spend hours exploring our new guitar inventory or are just stopping in for a pack of strings before rushing off to your next gig, we'll respect your time and your needs — no hassles or annoying upsells. And of course, you're free to try out anything in our store for as long as you like.
