"I brought in my Epiphone Korina Flying V and Buck did a great job installing 2 new pickups and cleaning out the guitars volume pots. Buddy was also very helpful and let me test drive everything after installation through a Orange half stack. Awesome place, I'll be back again soon." - Steve Shannon


"Buddy is an expert musician. His advice, insights, and customer service are worth the visit. I support this local shop because they offer value that I can't get from the web or a large chain." - Kenneth Sweinberg


"My kids love going to their music lessons. Buddy and Alex are great teachers, very knowledgeable, and they have a great selection of guitars and drums." - Steve Adams
