WE HAVE THE BEST SELECTION OF QUALITY ACOUSTIC GUITARS IN SAN ANTONIO. PERIOD.

HOORAY FOR THE INTERNET! It gave us this website, wonderful ways for immediate contact with people all over the globe, and access to information we never dreamed would be so readily available.                                                               HOWEVER……………..playing the guitar is a very personal thing, and having it in your hands, hearing it for yourself, feeling it, then talking to someone who truly knows all about that instrument. You can’t get that on your laptop. So we depend on people coming in the door and playing our guitars. Talk to me or Gus, or repairman John Thurston and you’ll find 3 people who are passionate about what we do.                                                                                                                                   Gus Wanner has a wealth of knowledge about guitars, fretted instruments and their history that is unsurpassed in San Antonio. John Thurston, as I’ve said before, is the most skilled all-around guitar repair person in Texas and can offer advice to those in need. Me, I’m just a pretty decent guitar player who also has some skills in repair and has translated a love of stringed instruments into a life’s work.                                                                                                                                    So if you’d like to send an email or text, friend us on Facebook, that’s great and please do, but it would be best if you stopped in to see us in person.
