    I'm sure I will get a flood of advice here, but I'll be in Austin for 3 days next week visiting an old friend (who won't really appreciate carting me around to guitar shops), and I need some suggestions. What are the must sees? I'm not a big vintage guy, and just want to see some unique stuff.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you are looking for new boutique gear, Guitar Resurrection has a lot of nice gear. www.guitarrez.com.
    I hope you enjoy Austin.

    There are a couple of things you might want to do like the Collings factory tour, take a little drive to hill country guitars in Wimberley. There are some places south that are in the same general area South Austin Music, Austin Vintage (used stuff not so vintage) and Ray Henning's.
