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.
Our Appointment Policy
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.
Willie’s is known for selling professional and investment-grade equipment. A tool of the trade, yet luxury items for most.
We also remind everyone that we musicians are usually the first to answer the call to help.
We will endeavor to offer a few impromptu free micro concerts on Facebook live.
It is our hope that these little “treats” remind us all to offer help to those that struggle.
The pandemic hit lower-wage earners the hardest. Please support you local food shelves wherever you live. Locally we support 2harvest.org We’ll offer up some more musical treats as a thanks.
