The price of careless handling:

We understand you're as enthusiastic about music as we are, 
but please understand that helping yourself to our floor stock
and causing damage to an instrument comes out of our expenses.

We're not being snooty or difficult when we ask you to ask us for
assistance with a guitar, just that we know better how to avoid
accidents in our shop and ultimately that saves us both time
and trouble.

"...if somebody brings out a ukulele at a party, there are no barriers, musical or otherwise. It's like a very addictive, but very safe drug.
-Mimmo Peruffo (Aquila Strings founder) Ukulele magazine

We couldn't agree more!

We have some of the best ukes available like the Hawaiian made brands Kamaka (K&K) and Kanile'a. You don't have to travel as far to find Martin and various vintage models gracing our walls, either!

Are we seeing double? 
We've got the market cornered on 12-string acoustic guitars these days. If you're searching for 'that sound' only twelve strings produces, we may just have the guitar for you. From right to left: Taylor 555 '94 (used) *SOLD*/ Taylor 456ce / Martin J-12-16GT / Taylor 355 '06 (used) w/Fishman pickup.

Seems like great weather to play a guitar in the sunshine...
...or under your favorite tree.

A blinding selection of Yamaha acoustic guitars just in! Choose from vibrant blue, deep maroon, or natural top models-a bargain for a feature packed, quality Yamaha instrument.

Let's play 'Spot the Martin':
It's a trick! There are TWO Martin guitars in this pick but one is their brand new "Dreadnought Jr.". Talk about a huge sound in a small guitar! 
This from Martin:
"Fashioned for player comfort, clear powerful tone and easy action, the Dreadnought Junior is reduced to approximately 15/16” of the full Martin 14-fret Dreadnought dimension (14 ¼” width at the lower bout) with an expressive 24” scale length. A solid Sitka spruce top features scalloped ¼” high performance X-bracing with a single asymmetrical tone bar. The back and sides are bookmatched from sapele, and Richlite, an ebony alternative with similar hardness and appearance, is chosen for the fingerboard and bridge. The Dreadnought Junior (aka “D Jr”) comes factory-equipped with Fishman’s Sonitone sound reinforcement system and includes a nylon gig bag."
And let's not forget the old standbys:

The trusty D-28                                                     and the gorgeous M-36
