Oasis Guitar Humidifier

It's That Time of the Year Again

When your central heat is on, it can make an unsafe environment for your guitar - especially for a guitar made of solid wood. The Oasis Guitar Humidifier Plus is a simple yet effective way to keep your guitar protected. Don't be afraid to come in or give us a call with any humidity related question reguarding your guitar. Better safe than sorry! More >>>

Furch Indigo Plus D-CY

Solid Gloss Cedar Top - Only $949

We've been talking about Furch guitars for a couple of years now. Made in the Czech Republic in a historic family workshop, these acoustics represent careful workmanship and deliver remarkable value.

We just received another shipment of Furch guitars, including some at a really attractive lower price point. Customers love them, and some have sold already.

This Indigo Plus-level Dreadnaught features a solid Western red cedar top with a gloss top and layered mahogany back and sides. The combination of the cedar top and the Dreadnaught size delivers tons of low end.

Like all the Furch instruments, this is a lot of guitar for only $949 including a sturdy padded Furch gig bag. More >>>

Martin OO-15M Lefty

A Mahogany Small-body Martin - Lefty!

We ordered a batch of C. F. Martin guitars way back last spring, just in time for their Pennsylvania factory to be shut down by COVID-19. The factory has reopened, but of course they're way behind with their production. So far, only a few of the guitars from our order have arrived, including this left-handed all-solid-mahogany OO-15M.

Standard guitars are in short supply this season, but lefty models are even more so. We were fortunate to get this guitar since even the national chains seem to be out of stock. This is one of Martin's best values at $1,299 with a hardshell case. If you play lefty and are looking for a moderately-priced small-body Martin with tons of tone, call or come in soon!

Here's the entire list of our in-stock and on-order Martins. If you're interested in any of the on-order instruments, contact us to get on our waiting list.

An online lesson in progress

Yes, We Teach Online Lessons

In fact, we teach lots of them! Our teachers are delivering nearly 100 online private lessons each week. Parents thank us for continuing their children's music education despite the pandemic. And adult students are using their free time to work on musical skills.

Our online platform works with lots of devices, and it's secure because each student gets a personal lesson access code that's dedicated to their specific lesson time. Students don't have to create any accounts and never log in with personal identifying information.

Want to give online lessons a try? Give us a call or send us a message via our Ask Us! page. Our teachers offer free no-obligation trial lessons, and we'd be happy to walk you through testing your device.
