House of Strings is an acoustic guitarist's dream. You can purchase your guitar, have it serviced regularly and repaired, tuned, and take lessons all in one building! House of Strings really stands behind their products, and often I've brought my guitar in for repairs (I purchased it there) and they didn't even charge me, as they felt the problem shouldn't have happened so soon after purchase. They also host local and national musicians, who perform mostly on weekends, and at no charge. This is just a great music store. The staff is friendly and great lovers of their work.
