And on the bottom right a brand new ROOTS COLLECTION Gretsch G9521 slot head acoustic in 'Cloudburst' finish with a solid spruce top.

For the uke minded we just received an infusion of more Kala brand ukes for the budget minded as well as the aspiring player.

YAMAHA - MADE IN JAPAN

Yamaha has always been a worldwide import brand but to us their 'true' roots harken back to their early days with the renowned 'red label' guitars reading 'Nippon Gakki', designating that Yamaha guitars were made in Japan.

Over the years Yamaha has maintained a smaller production house in Japan designated for the production of these meticulously crafted instruments featuring exacting manufacturing techniques with advanced materials processing. Check out the L-series guitars page for more: 

http://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical-instruments/guitars-basses/ac-guitars/l/?mode=series#tab=feature


From Yamaha: 


'This model offers a bit more of a vintage look. Ornaments have been left off to reduce weight. Among the "L"Series guitars, this simple design offers even greater response.
      •  Jumbo Body and Vintage Look
      •  Solid Engelman Spruce Top Treated with A.R.E.
      •  Solid Rosewood Back & Sides
      •  Mahogany and Padauk 5ply Neck

The vintage style brass tuners found on all #26 model guitars present these instruments with a classic look.'


WMC is proud to have one the nicest Yamaha acoustic guitars on the market in stock!

The K&K took my Baby Taylor away...eh...um...

Classic songs aside, we've got'em and it's official: 
WMC is now an authorized K&K pickup dealer! 

We haven't been excited enough about a new line of pickups for the shop in years. As luck would have it, there's a very nice Larrivee on our floor with a 'Pure Pickup' already installed should you want a listen. Find out why so many pickups on the market just don't have what the K&K's do by checking out their site here. http://www.kksound.com/instruments/acousticguitar.php
