SOMETIMES GIFT CERTIFICATES are the best Christmas presents, especially for fussy musicians. We are picky about picks, strung out about strings, and stuck on certain drum sticks. It's never a good idea to buy a guitar without seeing and playing it, though a beginner guitar is often a good choice for a child even if they haven't played it.
We sell a lot of Second String Music gift certificates at Christmas and we encourage them for people who aren't sure what to get. You can't go wrong. The person gets what he or she needs and everybody is happy.
At Christmas we get a lot of "This is a really dumb question" and "I have no idea what I'm doing." There are no dumb questions and we'll get you steered in the right direction. One of the best things we hear this time of year is, "Wow. That was easy!" It's what we do. Shopping for music stuff can be very intimidating.
Not only would Easy Peazy be a great band name, it's a slogan for us at Fifth and Maine. Merry Christmas! We'll make it fun for you to find that perfect gift for your particular musician or music lover.
