    I am in Las Vegas at the SHOT show convention. I would like to visit some guitar stores here. What do you recommend. I remember a rather controversial guy that has one but cannot remember his name and could not find it in the phone book. Please advise.

    I think Cowtown Guitars is in Vegas. I bought from them on-line about 7 years ago.

    Ed Roman's shop is massive. Worth a visit despite the controversy.

    Ed Roman's is a cross between a used car dealer's & GC. Hide your wallet.

    I was in Vegas in December and told a cab driver to take me to Ed Roman guitars. Dang, the place had just moved and nobody seemed to know to where... I ended up at new Guitar Centre instead. It was okay, some good amps in there, but I really wanted to go to Ed Roman's place instead - especially because of all the controversy! Be sure to call them ahead and get the correct address. I had limited time and couldn't go on another guitar shop visit while I was there.

    Ditto on Cow Town Guitars. The owner, Mark Chatfield plays in Bob Seger's band - he's a great guy.

    Cowtown is definitley the only place. Ed's new store is small.

    Yeah....Ed's new store is small, and 1 block north of the old place on Dean Martin. Haven't been in there yet. CowTown is great. AWESOME staff who's not pushy at all.

    The new GC in the Towne Center mall is cool. There's also a Sam Ass next to CowTown.

    Cowtown and Sam Ash is a brisk 40 minute walk from the Wynn.
