NYC guitar store(5 posts)
for a jazz guitar I am gonna go out on a limb and say that New York is not a good place to shop because the prices are going to be outrageous. It depends on how much you want to spend, though, and on what kind of axe you're looking for. Steer clear of the whole of 48th st. I would say. 30th st. guitars has always done a good job setting up my stuff, but i have never bought anything other than a few pedals from them.
I watched Ari's last 2 Smalls gigs online and they were both awesome. Gilad is playing with Mark Turner on there tonight for everyone thats interested. Whoever originally posted the topic about watching Smalls gigs online is a god.
my favorite stores out here are actually in new jersey:
lark street music
golden age fretted instruments
also, do yourself a favor and check out sadowsky guitars in brooklyn. it's right under the bridge and really easy to get to by train
Thanks so much for ur responses guys! Not looking for anything in particular, jazz gtr or maybe strat. Pedals are cheap here! I love this global community thing. Thanks again
