We are open at 1121 N State St Alley, in the alley behind the Farmer's Market, Wed-Sun 11-7.

Welcome to the shop.  There is always a unique selection of vintage and used guitars, mandolins, ukuleles, and more, with a price range for everybody.  Each instrument is fully set up and in prime playing condition.  I take a lot of pride in the work I do, and I love to help players find their instrument.  Whether it's an inexpensive couch guitar for a beginning strummer, or the vintage tone maker of a seasoned performer's dreams, I treat the player and the instrument with care, attention and respect.

I also offer experienced, professional repair service for most fretted stringed instruments.  Acoustic and electric guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, charango, bouzouki, you name it.  I offer the most basic restringing and setup, to intensive structural repair.  Here's a list of just some of the services I offer:
