G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-hollow

Latest G&L ASAT Bluesboy Arrivals

G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semihollow electrics are very popular with our customers. Versatile guitars with a range of tones from bite and growl to laid-back and bluesy, they have more tricks than a standard Tele-style guitar.

We just received two of these instruments - this one in classic Two-Tone Sunburst with an upgraded Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucker in the neck position, and another in a super-cool Blonde finish.

See lots more info and photos on our G&L page. Click HERE for the Two-Tone Sunburst, and HERE for the Blonde.

Larrivee OM-03R guitar

Larrivee OM / Bearclaw Spruce

Have you discovered Larrivée acoustics? Made in Jean Larrivée's California workshops, these guitars have their own style and voice. Jean was trained as a classical luthier, and his steel-string instruments incorporate some of those same design elements.

We just received this OM-03R with a beautiful bearclaw-patterned solid Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides.   More >>>

New and Vintage Martins

Martin guitars never fail to impress and our new D-18 is no exception. This iconic guitar has just arrived from the Martin workshops in Pennsylvania and it demands to be played! We also have a vintage 1975 D-35 with the full-bodied tone that only a vintage guitar can produce. Click here to watch Zach's video comparing three legendary Martins. (Unfortunately, the Martin HD-28 in the video has been sold and is no longer available.)

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 popular pedal types you might want to add to your rig.   More >>>

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.

You Can Listen To Our Guitars

The sound character of an acoustic guitar is really impossible to convey with just words. The best way to appreciate a guitar is to hear it in person.

To help you decide whether it's worth the trip to try a guitar in person, we've made short recordings of some of our best instruments. more >>>
