    My name is Frank Gross and I am the owner of Thunder Road Guitars. Welcome to my store. I have worked in the instrument retail field for almost a decade and finally have decided to open my own shop. The last 10 years of my life has been spent playing in successful bands, touring every corner of the beautiful United States and many parts of the world playing rock-n-roll. Being a musician myself, I have a strong love and passion for music and instruments. As a business owner I want to give you the same experience that I would expect from a guitar store.  I look forward to doing business with you.
