Here are some of my favorite places to buy equipment in the area.

Music Shops in Location

Here are a selection of music shops I would recommend for guitarists of all levels.

Twin Town Guitars, located at 3400 Lyndale Avenue South in Minneapolis, Twin Town Guitars carries new and used instruments, and they offer some of the best and most affordable guitar and amplifier repair in Minnesota. The staff is made up of musicians, who are in the studio and on the stage, who know how to play and what to expect, and who just plain want to help you make music.

Encore Music are located on 2407 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55405, United States. They are the leading Minneapolis store in selling and trading used music gear, this is a place I would recommend going to get a great deal on your first guitar.

Vintage Strings & Musical Instrument Co started in Bloomington, MN in September of 1994. they have re-opened in South Minneapolis located on 4309 E 54th St, Minneapolis, MN 55417. They buy, sell, repair, and consign almost all musical instruments, but they do have a special affinity for vintage guitars and other stringed instruments. If you are a musician looking to buy your dream high-quality instument, this is the place for you.
