    Visited it today while on business- walked out with a Mill Hill Creations Clean White Boost pedal...and wanted the R7 Goldtop, very nice. Felt real nice to me.

    Among an amazing array of gear I was particularly drawn to a CS SG, a CS White SG Secial w/ wraptail, and (never seen one in person before)- an ultra cool colored Oxblood 54 reissue w/ wraptail bridge. COuld have used a little bridge lowering and the strings were tuned about a step lower than std tuning, but I liked it. That place is a great shop. Wall to wall Fenders and an amazing room of AMPS!!!!

    Very cool part of what normally would be a boring work day + travel!!

    That's a really great store. They kept the store open for me too so I could come in after work and buy the Strat I wanted. They do carry an excellent array of amps, and have a pretty good effects case too.

    I like it a lot.

    I dig that store too. I've been to most of the boutique stores in the area, and that one is one of the better ones. You feel like you're walking into a dungeon full of guitars. Lots of vibe there.

    I stop there every time I'm in Atlanta. Great folks, lots of cool gear and some of the best prices I've ever found. Highly recommended.

    I bought my Victoria 45410 Bassman there a while back and I was admiring, along with David Wilson of ToneQuest Report, an amazing CS Strat, and in walked Peter Stroud, of 65Amps (not to mention Sheryl Crow Band:AOK). We talked about a half an hour (I was a little embarrassed that I had just bought the Vic!) and that was some conversation! Two uber cool guys (and me:eek:) talking guitars and amps and Crossroads Festivals. It was definitely a Kodak moment for me.

    Disclaimer: I don't work for Kodak. (Or anyone else but myself...) I will, however, watch your guitar collection for food. Just name it. I can cook...

    Great shop, great gear and great guys!

    I've done a lot of business with them over the years...my R8 and my 1982 Moderne both came from Midtown!
