Will be going to Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Miami soon and would like to hear if there are any cool stores worth visiting? Boutique, regular and vintage- everything is interesting :)

Florida is controlled by Guitar Center and Sam Ash. All the best independants I knew of have closed.

yup

nothing cool that i've seen. I usually drive to tampa to get second hand gear though. All the cool stuff I find on CL is usually in Tampa or Wh0relando

if you decide to go to Pensacola, go to Blues Angel music and say hi to Jim for me...

There was a cool shop with lots of vintage somewhere in Tampa and they had a satillite in downtown ST Pete that just closed. they were better than nothing. He always had a few blackface mid 60's fenders and some nice 70's Pauls on the wall.

What about the Guitar Factory in Orlando? I'm pretty sure Doug and Billy are still in business and they usually have a few cool things. If you don't mind driving to Holly Hill there's a pretty cool hole in the wall called the Guitar Attic. They usually have some nice guitars used and some decent amps.

MAE Music in Ft Lauderdale is one of the best in So FL. There's also a place called Extreme Guitar or something like that, they had some real high end stuff (Private Stocks, etc)

The GC is Hallandale has some nice high end gear. Not a ton, but high quality stuff...

Given all the people and wealth there, there's not much at all. I have way better stores here in the Raleigh area than they do in South Florida.
