1973 Fender Jazz Bass Pair

This pair of 1973 Jazz Basses captures the era perfectly, but perhaps what we love most about them is the way they're carbon copies of one another. The Black J Bass, with its maple fingerboard and black block markers, contrasts perfectly with the Olympic White J Bass and its rosewood fingerboard and pearl block markers.

"There are a lot of things to like about The Music Emporium, but first and foremost is how it has embraced innovative, independent builders."

“What sets The Music Emporium apart from other stores? The staff. Unsurpassed.”

TJ Thompson

“Right from the beginning, The Music Emporium has always been the center where music, players, and instruments come together.”

If you're looking to purchase a quality instrument, this is the place. When you enter, it feels as such, comfortable rugs and sofas and a crew ready to assist. And if you aren't aware, it's one of the few such places in the U.S. Do yourself a favor and stop by, even if you're just browsing.

S. Rule

One of the most beautiful music shops I have visited. Each guitar on their four walls is meticulously selected and/or custom built by leading luthiers/companies. Thank you Music Emporium for a seamless purchase and service. You deliver best-in-class across the board.

C. Jones

This is one of the best guitar shops in the country - period. Their selection is insanely good - across all price points - and they are honest, great people who treat everyone well. They’re also very fair and straightforward with trade-in values - better than any other shop I’ve dealt with - and don’t try to upsell you.

M. Cohn

The Music Emporium offers musicians a superior retail instruments and gear experience, both as a walk-in and online store. Living on the opposite side of the country from TME, I was amazed at the ease of the purchasing and delivery process.

G. Matthews

A truly outstanding guitar buying experience! The selection at the ME is unmatched, particularly in their showcasing of up-and-coming builders. The knowledge of the staff and their willingness to take the time to listen to my needs was appreciated.
