Furch Blue DLXGc-CM acoustic guitar

Finally! We Have More Furch Acoustics

We discovered Furch acoustic guitars several years ago. These instruments, made in the Furch family workshop in the Czech Republic, deliver impressive quality and value.

We just received a new shipment of six Furch acoustics, and one is sold already! If you're looking at some of the better-known acoustic brands, you really need to see and play these fantastic guitars before you buy. Come check them out before they're gone!   More >>>

Pre-owned Fender Custom Shop Strat

Wow! A Pristine Pre-owned
Custom Shop Classic Strat

Here's a stand-out Custom Classic Strat with ash body in Sunset Orange Transparent finish. This is not a common finish to find, and the transparent orange nicely highlights the grain of the ash wood.

Beautiful flamed maple neck with a large 'C' profile that sits nicely in the hand in first position and plays great all the way up the neck. The Custom Shop single coil pickups sound bright, snappy, and clear as a Strat should. If you've been thinking of a sweet and unique Stratocaster, don't hesitate on this one!

Excellent condition; just a few small marks. Certificate of Authenticity and original spec sheet included. $2,199.00 in original Fender Custom Shop hardshell case.   More >>>

MXR Tremolo Pedal

Is It Time To Try an Effects Pedal?

The sound of an electric guitar or bass is created not just by the instrument itself, but by the entire electronic chain between the instrument and the listener.

The most important electronic component, of course, is the amplifier. But amps can't do everything. If you're looking for that special distinctive sound, you will need to look at standalone effects pedals.

Inserted between your instrument and your amp, these pedals can deliver effects - even during a live performance - that would otherwise require post-production tweaking in a recording studio.

Here are some of the most common pedal types you might want to add to your rig.   More >>>

Little Amp, Big Sound

The new VOX Mini GO 10 is an amazing 10-watt portable amp. Not only is it a great sounding, easy to use practice amp, but it's also packed full of effects and features that will enhance your playing experience.

The Mini GO 10 is equipped with many popular amp sounds, guitar effects, reverb, a looper, and many other features that seperate it from the crowd of small practice amps. All of this for $279! Definitely check out the Mini GO 10 if you are looking for a portable, user friendly, all in one practice amp.

Don't need 10 watts? There's also the VOX Mini GO 3, a 3-watt version that includes many of the same features (but not the looper) for $199.

An online lesson in progress

In-Person Lessons Are Back

We have been offering only online lessons since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. But beginning in September, some of our teachers are offering in-person lessons again. Masks are required, and we ask you to wait in your car instead of our waiting room.

We completely understand if you're not comfortable yet with in-person lessons, so our teachers are still offering online lessons as well.

Either way, give us a call or send us a message via our Ask Us! page. Don't forget, all our teachers offer free no-obligation trial lessons.

Is Rusty Rushing the Season?

In a word, NOPE! If you want to give the gift of music this year, you should start shopping NOW. The supply issues that are in the news have hit the music industry hard. We already have waiting lists for some popular items, and further shipments look uncertain.
