A new guitar for Gretsch and us, the G9511 Style 1 "Parlour" Appalachia Cloudburst:

With it's sold spruce top, laminate mahogany back and sides and 24-3/4" scale length the G9511 will feel like your favorite old fingerstyle/blues/folk/songwriter guitar but with modern playability and function. And with a list price of $499 you can bet it won't hang on our hook for long in the shop!

How about this wonderful Kala mahogany uke:
Just in this KA-CEM concert size uke. Here's what Kala has to say about it:

Measurements:
Scale Length: 14.875 inches, Overall Instrument Length: 24.125 inches, Body Length: 11.125 inches, Number of frets: 18, Width at upper bout: 6 inches, Width at lower bout: 8.25 inches, Width at waist: 4.875 inches, Body Depth: 2.75 inches, Fingerboard width at nut: 1.39 inches, Fingerboard width at neck/body joint: 1.73 inches
Attractively priced as well as attractive to behold!

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!

Can't say we've encountered a string 'save' quite like this:

As they say, 'Necessity is the mother of invention'...or you could just stop by
for a new banjo string or set of strings. ;)

IN OTHER NEWS:

Coming up, 
our 2017 Martin Guitars order will be trickling in.
If you have something in mind and thinking this is

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

The new Taylor 150e has all the goods in one affordable package!






'For years, Taylor’s sleek, ultra-playable necks have helped define a great 12-string experience. The 12-string Dreadnought 150e fits that signature playability and tonal clarity into an affordable package, making a quality 12-string more accessible to budget-minded players looking to broaden their musical palette. The Dreadnought body’s strong low-end response balances well with the crisp octave shimmer, producing a tone that’s lush and articulate, with lots of dynamic range. Features include layered walnut back and sides, a solid Sitka spruce top, 1-7/8-inch neck, matte-finish body, black binding and pickguard, and natural-sounding Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup.'
