Testimonials

See what folks have to say about us.

Great to deal with. Got a really good deal, so much better than expected. Would return to buy stuff from these guys for sure!

Isaac Teo

What an overwhelming experience of guitars and drums! Super nice crew and a really clean, well organized place. Never have I seen so many Gibsons on one wall! Awesome experience and prices are comparable to the other stores.

Traveling with Turk (Local Guide)

Very cool store with a great selection. I like that they either make you use headphones or an isolation room to try out electric guitars or amps.

Stephon Wasio

Absolutely outstanding and incredible guitar shop. Best I've ever been to. Unreal selection of every kind of guitar you can imagine. Super helpful, friendly, and patient staff.

Mark Huber

Husband bought guitar of his dreams. Prices are competitive even with eBay. Lots of assistance if you need it but they mostly leave you be. Gave us a great deal on this Taylor.
