ASHER GUITARS

You may have seen that our friend Bill Asher recently delivered a replica of Jerry Garcia's legendary Wolf to John Mayer. While we don't have a Wolf replica on offer (sadly), we do have several of Bill's guitars in stock that are worthy of your attention.

WHAT OUR FRIENDS & CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

High end selection, great environment, unpretentious...awesome!

Bill Collings, Founder of Collings Guitars

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

The Fretboard Journal
★★★★★

This is what all guitar stores should be like. Laid back sales staff ready to answer questions, but also stay out of your way to let you really play whatever guitar it is that suits you. And boy howdy do they have a great selection of instruments to choose from or what? Both electric and acoustic, if you can't find something you like, maybe you're not a guitarist in the first place.

★★★★★

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.

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.

Bought a beautiful used guitar online from here. They even checked the guitar and straightened the neck for me before shipping. The guitar was well packaged/protected and arrived quickly.

★★★★★

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.
