Happy Customers

The guys there were nice and super helpful. Bought a fender p-bass and had two guitars worked on. Fair price and timely. I would highly recommend them.

“Mike and Joe are simply the most knowledgable and helpful guys around; I specifically needed help with parts and the setup for my 1964 Gretsche White Falcon. It plays better than ever."

Took my Les Paul and Strat to them to have them 'gone through' and setup. They were really easy to work with and I got them back the next day. Both guitars play better than brand new. Don't hesitate, they do good work. —

Top-notch establishment. Inventory, employees, vibe and whatever else you come across in the place. Someone told me the guy that runs the joint can play a little.....

Recently purchased my first electric after being an acoustic guy for 30 years. Mike and Joey spent the right amount time over a few visits to ensure that I selected the right guitar for my playing style, expectations, and budget. I appreciated very much the variety of the used guitars in excellent condition that were professionally setup and ready to play and handle. This place is made for exploration! In the end I selected a much different guitar than I anticipated because I found what was exactly best suited to me. Without Mike and his guys I would have made the wrong choice. Highly recommended!
