Come on over to the new

So fellow travellers, this is the end of the blog here – we’ve set up shop at our brand new site –

We’re adding new stock by the minute, but there’s a pretty good selection to peruse now, so come on over!

Thanks a ton to all the folks who have followed us here, and see you at the new place….

Left to right we have a 1978 Precision Bass, a 1968 Coronado II, and a 1979 Stratocaster.
