We're an independent music store located in the heart of Lawrence, Kansas - just a stone's throw from Kansas City and Topeka. You'll find us at the corner of 14th & Mass. Street. For over 40 years, we've been the quality resource for musicians to find great gear and get exceptional repair work done. Whether it's a guitar for your child, your first banjo or your dream guitar, we strive to provide the best electric and acoustic guitars, amps, folk instruments, pedals, pickups and more - plus the best service around. What sets us apart from other stores is our unique selection of gear, knowledgeable staff, and our dedication to helping you get what you're looking for - and you'll always get a free set up on new gear from one our luthiers.

We are happy to do custom and special orders (it's a specialty of ours actually) and our Repair department is second to none - from strap buttons and pickup installations to mods to full restorations. We have a well-considered collection of gear in our store, at many different price levels – a 'starter guitar' is treated with as much care and consideration as boutique electric or acoustic, or a prized vintage Martin. Every new instrument gets a free set up from one of our four luthiers too. All used gear is carefully assessed by our staff and luthiers, before it ever goes on the floor or online. Lawrence has a vibrant music community – and has for decades. We're proud to be part of it. We love playing music and we want you to too!

All our gear comes with a 7-day evaluation period. An extra 24 hours is added on for acoustic instruments during the winter season, to allow the contents to reach room temperature before you open the box. If you are not completely satisfied with the instrument, just return it via your preferred common carrier. Also, we do not send out instruments for evaluation without payment in full. *All B-Stock sale items are in working condition, and are sold as is. All B-Stock sales are final. To return an item please give us a call, or email to receive a return authorization. We ask that you very carefully pack the gear up in its original carton, with all the accessories and paper work included, and ship it back to us via a common carrier (not Uncle Al's Pony Express) to us. Please insure it for the full retail amount. If the item is damaged while in transit, we'll notify you and ask that you file a claim with your preferred shipper. Once the item arrives back to us and we unpack it, we will issue a full credit for the item, less the shipping charges. (A return voids any free shipping offers and the customer is liable for shipping charges both ways.) If the item is not in its original condition, or is returned after the normal evaluation period has expired without prior arrangement with us, re-stocking fees and other charges may apply.
