If your looking to buy a $300 guitar, this is not the place for you. If your looking to buy a Taylor, than this is the place for you. No doubt, these guys know guitars and equiptment but the impression that I got from visiting a few

I have had a long relationship with Fat Sound Guitars. It is a true boutique shop offering outstanding service, excellent products, and unparalleled knowledge and expertise on guitars and amplifiers. From my first experience with Stu

Fat sound is specialised in Guitars. I play bass. However I like to go there once in a while for maintenance or advise.

A few years ago a brought a fretless bass for a nut setup. I wanted to gradually lower the action at the nut in a way that the G string has a lower action then the E string.

The luthier did the job precisely to the specs I asked for, and the instrument played like a charm ever since.

I recommanded Fat Sound to a few friends who own some collectible gibson guitars ane they were very impressed by their professionalism.

These guys obviously know their stuff. They guided my beginner guitar player to an excellent guitar. When the neck warped slightly they discovered it and gladly fix it. They're always happy to answer questions even if it won't lead to a sale.

The guys at Fat Sound know customer service. I have not had this good an experience in customer service from any store, much less any guitar store. They provide great advice based on your needs. After the sale, if you have any issues at all, they go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your purchase. I will never buy a guitar or amp from another store, it's not worth the risk. I can leave there each time satisfied that it was money well spent, and that they will stand behind my purchase. You would be hard pressed to find a guitar store more knowledgeable about tone, and to include the excellent service with it is just the icing on the cake.

Pros: Great selections, excellent advice, great follow-up service

The guys at fat sound have always been top notch. I've been frequenting the store for the last 8 or so years, and have never had a bad experience.
The things they stock in the store are of the absolute highest quality. They stock lots of things that are very difficult to get from other places, and do lots of online business as well. Don't be misled though - there's lots of high end equipment, but it's also an appropriate place to find a guitar for a beginner, or an upgrade from a beginner's guitar. They do a good job of catering to as many people as possible.
The staff there is always a pleasure. Each one of them know me by name, and are always willing to answer any questions I've ever had - no matter how big or small of a question. They treat each customer like a member of their own family, I've never been let down by their service.

Stu, Mike A, and Mike G have always done an excellent job with the store. Do yourself a favor and visit the store, or at least their website if you ever get the chance!

Beyond just the fantastic gear in the store, I have to say that Stu, Mike, and Mike are probably the most knowledgeable, professional, and unique individuals I have ever seen running a store. You walk in and you are not assaulted by some pimple faced teenager or a "sales guy" who has no clue about anything and jsut wants to push equipment...you are greated by guys who are PASSIONATE about what they do. They ALL very genuinely care about every customer that comes in the door. Their advice is beyond reproach, they truly use the products they preach about and truly care about musicians in general. They want what is best for the entire industry, not just themselves. They ensure every instrument that leaves is as good as it can possibly be, from the 200 dollar strat packs to 5000 dollar guitars. You absolutely CANNOT go wrong in placing your trust in ANY of the employees of this store. I have talked with satisfied customers quite literally the WORLD over that rave about the service they received from FatSound. Their reputation is very hard earned, but VERY well deserved.

Also, the Luther dept and lessons are absolutely top notch also!! I have let Mark Kane work on every single one of my guitars and wouldn't trust ANYONE else except for possibly the builder to handle any repair or adjustment

In looking for some new toys I did what I ALWAYS do first. I stopped into Fat Sound Guitars and asked my stock first question... "What did you guys get in that's cool?" The great thing about Fat Sound is they KNOW their customers. They knew I was in the market for a relatively inexpensive second/backup/practice rig and a good tremolo pedal. Right away they made several suggestions. The New Vox 4w Combo Amp, The Vox Night Train and matching Cab and the latest (like very new) trem pedal from Effectrode - The Delta Trem. Having a hard time deciding what to buy I just took them all (no sales pressure by the way - that doesn't happen here.) Needless to say all the purchases were dead on for what I needed. Stu, Mike and the rest of the fellas at Fat Sound always come through and never try to sell you what you don't need. And yes after much discussion with my wife we have determined that from time to time I NEED new toys! Been a customer for many years. And I have been steered wrong. Thanks fellas!

Pros: Knowledgeable staff, no hard sells, best gear!

Cons: Not close enough to my house! :D

Fat Sound Guitars is special because they focus on what they know and they know guitars and guitar products. They always have the very best selection of guitars and the staff is extremely knowledgeable about the products they sell. They've got great pricing but it is their dedication to the customer that keeps me coming back.

Stu, Mike, and Mike ... my hat's off you to. You guys really do make that store THE place to shop.

If your child damages a guitar, they try to make you buy it....even if it costs $3000.

Cons: Expensive Guitars within reach of children

A cool guitar store with tons of high end gear. A somewhat limited supply of used or vintage gear, but they carry a great stock of great new gear. Fat Sound was an early adapter of Dr. Z, if that tells you anything. The staff seems to be a bit arrogant at first, but once you engage them, they come around.
