Neighborhood: 8th Ave.
A town known as Music City has got to have a great guitar shop right? Well, since 1970, Gruhn Guitars is that shop. Gruhn Guitars has one of the world’s premier collections of vintage, used and new fretted instruments. How does a new Martin D-28 compare to a pre-war example? Gruhn’s showroom is the place to find out for yourself.
“Since 1963, George Gruhn has distinguished himself as the one to see in Music City – or anywhere for that matter – if you’re in the market for a vintage stringed instrument . . . He categorizes his interest in guitars – like that of his staff and most of his clientele – as beyond obsession. ‘Those with a serious interest have an addiction, and we’ve got the goods,’ Gruhn says of his customers, who include the heavyweights of popular music – Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Lyle Lovett, Vince Gill, George Harrison, and Paul McCartney, just to name a handful.” – Bone Magazine”
