If you're looking for a guitar this store is really worth checking out. Yes, it's in Langley on Whidbey Island so it's a little out of the way, but trust me, it's worth it. Anyway, a trip to Whidbey is a nice getaway. The store's owners are very friendly and provide good information without sales pressure. They let me sit in one of their lesson studios for about a half an hour and play several guitars. I ended up buying a Breedlove OM/SRe,Herringbone. I'd never heard of the Breedlove brand before seeing them at Joe's, but once I'd played it there was no turning back. It is so nice...great sound, plays easily, looks nice and comes with an awesome case. Anyway, this is the kind of store I like to support...local, family owned. You can tell they have a lot of pride in the place. Check it out.
Pros: nice instruments; knowledgeable friendly service;no pressure
