We're doing everything we can to help you make music!
A great example of the line, this SR-300E is stunning in its Navy Planet Matte finish! Playing an SR300 is comfortable and won't break your back - even after a long gig - because of its slimmer neck, lighter body, and overall sleek design. It's easy to dial in the right tone for any style with its advanced yet simple-to-use selector knobs.
We were saddened to learn that Bill Brown passed away on April 24. Bill founded The Minor Chord in 1984 and owned it until he retired in 2010, selling the business to Carl and Andrea.
Bill is widely remembered for his love of music and the way he shared that love generously with everyone. More information is available here.

As guitar bodies get smaller, we expect less volume and tone. But this Martin O-18 surprised us!
With a body almost as small as a parlor-style guitar, the O-18 is super comfortable to hold - perfect for the smaller player who can't get their arms around larger-bodied instruments. But the sound is pure Martin: rich with a satisfying low end. Fingerstyle playing, sure, but this little gem punches above its weight, even standing up to moderate strumming. More >>>
Looking for a guitar that will have that all-solid tone but want to keep it within budget? This Martin GPC-11E Road Series could be what you were looking for. At $999 this guitar comes with a solid Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides, all in a satin finish. Not convinced yet? The Fishman MX-T pickup system features an easily visible tuner in the soundhole with an auto-mute function for convenient tuning any time. With a premium soft case included this guitar can be a great choice for someone looking for an upgrade. More >>>

If you're getting tired of propping up your tablet or phone on whatever's handy, try the On Stage U-Mount clamp.

And it's only $35.99, including four different padded jaws to grip mobile devices of almost any size.
Getting started with hard rock or heavy metal? This used Epiphone G-400 SG Pro is the perfect axe. It has really high output with its iconic distorted tone from the dual humbuckers. From AC-DC to Black Sabbath this guitar excels at that classic hard rock/heavy metal look and sound at only $299.99 with a gig bag. Come in and check it out! More >>>
With a solid top and well-built construction, it is no surprise the Yamaha FS800 is super popular among beginners who want an affordable great-sounding guitar that will give them many years of happy playing. The under-$200 price you'll see online is for just the guitar, and we'll match that price. But if you want to protect your investment, we offer the FS800 plus a lightweight but sturdy backpack case for $259. More >>>
