Our Appointment Policy

We ask that you make an appointment to play instruments. To relax in our acoustic room or main floor without 20 other people mingling is a joy you will want to experience. You get to really listen without the big store chaos. No appointment is necessary for strings, accessories or repairs. Quick walk-throughs are available if no appointments are in progress.
We also buy used American guitars and sometimes consign high-end collectibles. The history of American Guitars is our specialty. We are internationally known experts in vintage guitars. We will try to accommodate touring bands for repair emergencies. For online orders we have personal videos available and have safely shipped guitars all over the world for 35 years.
