Hey, I ran across Mike Risko Music in Ossining NY the other day and was happy to see some boutique lines (two rock, fano, tone king, john page) alongside the mom and pop store gear. He also has a good selection of Eastman and Music Man. He is hosting upcoming in store clinics including PBG guys and Eric Gales (which I will try to attend). And to top it off, Mike is a super nice and knowledgeable guy. He let me play his personal high end Benson Ibanez and the Andy Timmons sig model. Oh, and if you are a tele guy, you will want to play the black John Page AJ in the store. I almost whipped out the cc, but I have amp stuff I need right now. I try to patronize folks like Mike as much as I can. I spent about 45 minutes trying gear and chatting and during that time about a dozen kids came in and out for their music lessons. I told Mike it reminded me of my childhood at Charlie Byrd's Music House in DC where I would play and lust after the Aria Pro II's on the wall. Not many people like Mike left out there providing this kind of service to their communities AND trying to keep higher end gear in stock for us gear hounds. Let's try to keep the brick and motor good guys around as much as possible.
