    Default Guitar Stores Online-US

    Is there a guitar equivalent of Mims or HMS? Our local store is rude and I refuse to give them business and we also have Guitar Center so meh. Thanks y'all!

    Elderly is good if you don't mind paying shipping costs (can be really high for a guitar and case).

    I agree with Peter, Elderly is very good. Another one is Sweetwater, they have a massive facility excellent sales people on the phone that really know their stuff. They are all musicians extremely well trained and customer service is second to none.

    I heartily agree that Elderly is great! They did me a very big favor with one of my banjos. Their shipping is high, it’s true, but I use them anyway.

    I highly recommend them.
    Kala "Spalted" baritone - Lo D GBE - Finger style
    Gold Tone “Mini” Travel banjo - Steel GCEA - Noodling
    Luna “Peace” concert - CGBD Plectrum music

    Kala tenor eight string - gGcCEEAA Strum ‘n Sing

    Flea "Red" concert - Hi-G CEA - Wall hanger
    Kala "Exotic Mahogany" soprano - Hi-A DF#B Wall hanger
    Mahalo yellow "Smiley" soprano - Wall hanger
    Ka-Lai Pineapple soprano (old) gift - Bookshelf

    God gave us old age so we wouldn't mind dying so much.

    FWIW, I'm pretty sure Sweetwater owns Guitar Center (and therefore Musicians Friend)....

    I second Maury's Music - an excellent site - especially if you are looking for a Martin guitar.

    Two others I like are:

    Artisan Guitars

    and

    Gruhn Guitars

    The last two are in Nashville.

    Happy hunting!

    I've bought a few instruments from Spruce Tree Music, decent new & used selection, and nice folks.

    Do yourself and others a favour and deal with Sweetwater on the phone before lumping them in with GC & MF. I am a member of Acoustic Guitar Forum, these people are as crazy and knowledgeable about all things guitar as we are about ukes on UU. Huge support and positive feedback from the members buying guitars for Sweetwater.

    I have not bought a guitar from them (live in Canada) but many other smaller items. I turned Luis who builds LfdM ukes onto them and he loves how knowledgeable they are and they excellent service.
