We visited during Thanksgiving weekend. Both kids play and the experience was like letting them loose in a candy store. They had so much fun trying the different guitars. I definitely recommend checking out this Nashville gem!

I would however highly recommend a visit to Cotten Music (on Houston). They have a smaller selection of choice vintage acoustics but the...More

I'm not a guitar player, but my kids are and we visited twice during our vacation. Most impressive collection of new and vintage guitars, from affordable to crazy expensive. Just listening to the music being played was impressive.

If you are in Nashville and a player you have to visit Gruhn Guitars. Plenty of works of art to choose from $800-195,000. Staff seems chill to let you explore and play. No matter what your style is they have the tools.
