Start at 1 and count up...

Taylor Guitar's 100 Series is a great place to start:

I great place to experience all the features and tone these guitars possess with walnut layered back and asides, 12-strings, and that well-known ES2 Expression System. Yes, they always come with a quality Taylor gig bag!

The Guitar That Never Was

Sometimes you think you saw a guitar in our shop but you weren't sure so you come back to see if it's still here and it's gone.

Case in point the Gretsch 9511 Style 1 'Single-O' parlor guitar from their excellent 'Roots Collection' of guitars, ukuleles, and banjos. 

We've had two of these instruments in stock that gathered no dust on our hooks! In fact, one person heard the first one we sold and ordered their guitar immediately! 

The difference when you buy from us rather than some online 'giant' that third party ships your guitar 'as-is' in the box is that we inspect & adjust every guitar we sell. You can also request your favorite strings and setup-good luck asking Amazon to do that for you. ;)

We're inundated with mandolins from $99-$695! Brands from Savannah, Rogue, Kentucky, Loar, and Eastman for every style and budget-lots of 'A-Models' and one 'F' to explore here. Plus, you're buying an instrument that has been professionally set up for easy, beginner friendly action as well as the option of a 'pro' setup with different strings if desired. We never take an instrument out of the box and just hang it up for sale!

We currently have two Gretsch 'Jim Dandy' models in stock but they rarely stick around long at < $170!
Also pictured to the left of our Eastman parlor guitar, a Gretsch G9531 'Style 3'
If you have't played one of these mid-priced 'Roots Series' Gretsch guitars you're in for a surprise: classic sound and looks with modern feel-astounding value!

We have two reasonably priced used classicals on consignment this week along with a nice steel string acoustic if your tax return has been kind to you...

Or 'tax return be damned!' a gorgeous Taylor 712ce 12-fret 
has just revisited our hangers. 



Thanks to all of you for supporting the brand with us! 
As our remaining stock is whittled away
we'll begin sourcing another brand or two 
to fill in the showroom-stay tuned.
