Cool stores in Philadelphia?

I'm going to be in Philadelphia next week for a conference, and wondering if there are any cool guitar stores in the Center City/Old City area worth checking out. I'm staying at the Sheraton Society Hill at 2nd & Walnut and not renting a car, so bonus points if it's walking distance from there. I've got some time Tuesday evening after I arrive, and a few hours free Wednesday afternoon, so I thought I'd get out and play tourist a bit.

Thanks!

There’s really nothing there. If you want to take a little trip, you can head to Roxy’s in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia. The guy has a ridiculous amount of expensive guitars, amps, and pedals. The real fun is if you try to buy something. I don’t think he really wants to sell anything.

Thanks for the recommendations. It looks like Vintage Instruments actually carries a model of mandolin I've been looking at, so I'm going to try to get there and check it out.

If they are still there, grab a cheesesteak or pizza at Gianfranco's, on Third just north of Market.

Bluebond Guitars on Fourth just north of South Street seems to still exist and you will want to check out South Street anyway.
