We began our journey as a music retailer in the simplest of ways: In a spare bedroom in Milwaukee as one of the earliest online sellers of used guitars, basses, amps, and effects. From that humble beginning we found our true calling serving the needs of musicians the world over, quickly growing into one of the largest independent guitar shops in the world. Since 1999 we've grown into an industry leader and trusted authority on fretted instruments, amps, and effects, serving hundreds of thousands of customers throughout the United States.

We’re a passionate group of musicians dedicated to helping our fellow musicians find sound you're looking for. We focus on specialization and have exceptional team members who each have their area of knowledge to share with you. We can help you find the gear that brings out the very best in your creative expression.

We're a team of fifteen good-hearted people who want to offer you some of the best deals on gear you'll find and a level of customer service that is second to none. We are committed to making every experience with us an exceptional one.
