"I have been taking my guitars here for years, going back to when they were a part of Buffalo Bros. James is honest and very knowledgable about guitar. Turn around time is great and my guitars are always set up exactly to my liking. One time I had a gig in a couple days and he put a rush on it so I could play the guitar at my show. Great customer service. Do not look further. Take your instruments here."
