Get your name on the want list!

A number of high quality consignment guitars are heading to the shop from every corner of the U.S.A. and beyond. Some recent arrivals have been sold or put on hold before they even make it to the website listing. I am continuing to keep keep a want list for those players that want to get in line for something very specific in very nice playing condition. Please email or call to discuss your particular requirements.
