Buying Your Guitar

I'VE SPENT A lot of time the past few days showing students and customers guitars.

Some are more concerned with feel and color. Some want tone. Some want higher end, some want a cheap banger.

Ahh ... the first guitar I ever bought!
Here's your big advantage at a small retail store - you can play the guitar. That's right, pick it up, strum it, look at it very closely.

I've owned a lot of guitars over the years. Some have been traded or sold. Some were impulse buys I immediately regretted. A few I wish I kept.

I finally found the perfect marriage of form, style and tone when I bought a Reverend Flatroc earlier this year. And I finally found the perfect acoustic/electric with the Pro Series Takamine. 

It only took four decades. Hey, you gotta keep trying, right?

So. Come on down to Fifth and Maine and see us at Second String Music. Take your jacket off, plug in and play. Here's to hoping you find your sound, style and comfort level, and we'll do everything we can to make it happen.

By the way, I'm in the market for a new 12-string .... GUH.
