Here at WMC we can say with almost complete certainty there are only a handful of situations that merit the term 'musical crisis'. Normally it's a band member with something broken on their guitar and no backup instrument, an impending performance/jury/audition that a musician needs the music for and has either put off ordering until the eleventh hour or through a series of pitfalls lost the piece, etc. but not always so. Lastly, funerals are oftentimes a flurry of people and plans coming together for the service with small details like music to play or musicians to hire that we see harried customers stop by for assistance. Being sympathetic to their situations as we've all lost someone and had to plan for the wake or service in a short amount of time, we are always willing to go the extra mile for those in mourning. Case in point, the guitar pictured below that came into the store today for a much needed sprucing up after having sat idle in an attic for thirty years or so. The customer is going to use it in the service as a kind of tribute to the deceased (as it may have been their guitar). We were pleased to discover that with just a moderate amount of tic, new strings and adjustments this Japan made 70's era steel string came to life quite nicely with a full, resonant sound. We send our condolences to the family and hope that our small contribution eases their grieving.
