Positive Communication, Professionalism & Quality

Friendly and knowledgeable people near me who seem to go the extra mile to help you. Bought an acoustic guitar there 2017. It's unbelievable that something so affordable could last a lifetime, sounding better with age. Thanks Ian and Tully.



Awesome customer service and fantastic craftsmanship from Ian!
