    Hey All,

    Thank you very much for such amazing support over the last several years. We owe players such as yourselves an enormous amount of gratitude for kind words, helpful opinions and repeat business.

    Here is a little shop tour for those of you that don't know us yet. We carry an enormous amount of boutique brands and rare/collectible used pieces from Fender, Gibson and PRS.

    We are proud to say that we are dealer of the year for Knaggs guitars the last two years running, and are also one of the largest Suhr Dealers, Tom Anderson Dealers, Grosh, Mcinturff, Fibenare, and many, many more.

    Thank you - and now for some shop photos!!

    Just got this beautiful Roger Giffin TT Model in with Kent Armstrong Custom P90 and Tele Pickup.

    We chose a killer piece of Old Growth Brazilian from Roger's stash and this guitar sounds even better than it looks finished in Trans Black Dog Hair.

    Wow, what a beautiful shop you have! Its so nice to see this, an important reminder that a brick and mortar small business can survive and thrive in the age of online mega-merchants and Guitar Center.

    Cheers to you!

    I'll step up as I have purchased gear from DG.

    Great to work with. No hesitation to go back again.

    Love the shots of the shop.

    I dig the "Revered Room".

    Thank you MangoMango and GenDAWG for the kind words! I tried to create a higher end gallery experience that compliments the work of the amazing builders we carry. We did some custom walls and hangers, custom furniture and pedal cabinet. It's a great place to come to work every morning!!

    Great opportunity to highlight a KILLER QUILT Knaggs Chena Hollowbody we just got in.

    Mix it up on this fine Tuesday. Going to go NON GUITAR today.

    How about this 1926 Gibson Pointsettia Ukulele? This is considered the Holy Grail of Ukulele's. It's the 59 Burst, Pre War Martin, 50 Broadcaster, it is the one you want. Less than 10 exist, all hand painted, all different. This one is the more rare earlier version.

    Holy crap I think that's the prettiest top I've ever seen - looks like flowing water.

    Very nice, inviting shop you have there; looks to be in a residential area. Wish we had something with that good a selection here in the 4th largest city in the country (Houston). Instead we have five Guitar Centers now that I can't stand to enter; shredder magnets.

    How about one of our limited edition Don Grosh Tie Dye NOS Guitars? This cult classic finish was discontinued but we convinced Don to bring it back exclusively for us!
