Eastman, Guild and Art & Lutherie have all recently come out with easy-to-recommend instruments in an easy-to-afford price range. We have an excellent selection in stock, with more on the way.
As always, we do a thorough set-up on each guitar before it goes out the door. And we invite you to stop back with your guitar after a couple of months. If your guitar needs a bit more tweaking after it’s been out in the real world, we’ll take care of it.
