As it had been recommended to me by a friend, I walked into The Guitar Shop nearly four years ago. I owned a nylon-string guitar I'd bought at a silent auction for my choir, but had never been able to play, despite years of trying. After a few minutes talking to The Guitar Shop owner, Steve, an investment of $100 and a trade, I walked out with a beautiful, warm-sounding little guitar I could play right away. Steve knew it was the exact right guitar for me at the time. I still have it as a beach guitar, but am now on my second nylon string guitar from The Guitar Shop - a 7/8 size Saez, a much "better" guitar, but still relatively inexpensive. I go there for weekly lessons and enjoy hanging out awhile afterwards in the Harry Potter-esq ambience and listen to the conversations flying around me. I always learn interesting and useful facts about guitars..or music...or life.
A few weeks ago The Guitar Shop gave me the fun of getting to seriously try a 1864 Martin nylon string parlor guitar. For an hour I got to hold it, look at it and play that very vintage guitar myself, then I handed it to better players so I could listen to the different types of sounds they were able to get out of the instrument. I reluctantly decided that I really want my next guitar to be a steel string, so I didn't buy it, but I felt it would have been worth the money.
When I'm ready to purchase a steel-string guitar, I trust that Steve will also find the best sounding guitar for me in my price range...whatever it is. If new, possibly it will be one that Steve himself helped design, or that was made from his own store of tonewoods. If vintage, it will be one appropriate for me, a beginner/intermediate player to be able to play now and grow into, but still one I can afford.

As a graduation gift, one of my close friends decided to buy me a guitar and send it to me! To my great misfortune however, I snapped the G-string on it almost immediately and had to go in search of another. Enter the Guitar Shop.

Although the web site may look a bit sketchy and the actual shop is hard to find, the shop served its purpose.

The shop looks like something from Santa's Workshop rather than a full fledged guitar store and this is definitely a far cry from the clean and pristine stores that we are so accustomed to these days. On the other hand, the owner was very helpful and attentive.
