I will admit I did not buy anything, and I only went to look around and see what they had.

Granted Simon and Ripley's is a relatively new store, but I can guarantee that they are top notch as I normally never review a business without doing business with them first.

For the past several weeks I have been looking into the music side of the next step in my Mac production based workflow. Among the things I plan on saving up to invest in are a new MacBook Pro with Adobe CS5, Final Cut Studio, an Apogee Duet, two additional Blue Microphone mics, some multimedia grade hard drives, and some additional hardware.

Well, you are asking why did I then visit a guitar store? The answer is that an Electric Guitar can be inexpensively set up to record directly into a computer. So I am now wanting to get a guitar, a Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin II Archtop to be exact. This guitar I chose because of the sheer flexibility it would allow me to have in playing and recording into Logic. Don't get me wrong, Logic is a great piece of audio production software; however, when combined with a quality modeling amp, like the line6 amp they sell, it takes a huge load off my computer by pre-producing the sound I need before it is recorded.

That aside, the staff there is very nice and knowledgeable. They strive to be helpful in every way as they answered all my questions without hesitation or trying to steer me to some other product. More importantly, they even sell music, equipment and supplies for instruments other than piano and guitar; which in a town like Nashville, where guitar shops can be a dime a dozen, really shows how much they care about the entire music community. So it is with great pleasure that I give Simon and Ripley's 5 full stars, though really they deserve 10 just for how helpful they were. I will definitely be returning there when I am ready to buy my Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin II, and that is a guarantee.
