The party will be here at the store (211 Lambert Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94301) and we’ll have live music, cake, giveaways from some of our favorite builders (t-shirts, instruments(!), strings, picks and other swag), cake, fun and cake. We’d love too see you there.

Our Story>



Frank and Richard in 1978 with a few reminders of why we still come in to work every day after half a century of doing this.


Our current location around 1983. It was much nicer inside.


The interior of the store around 1984. Those guitars were almost every model of Martin available at the time.
