    I'm in New Orleans for a few days as part of my vaca.

    Are there any particular guitar shops that carry used anyone could recommend I check out while I'm in town?

    I always look for a cheap lefty project with solid bones as a souvenier of sorts when I'm on vaca.

    I wish I could.

    The shops we had in the 70s never were so great, then a GC opened in Harahan and the opportunity for a really remarkable shop kinda fizzled out. The price of crude oil would tank and business types could see the market wouldn't be kind to them.

    Then, Katrina came along and wiped out a massive percentage of the guitars in the community (including all but 1 of mine) and you're just not going to find the treasures many other older towns might have. So, we have a few mediocre shops; not worth allocating time to - better to spend the time at meals, museums, shows, festivals.
