  • READ THE ARTICLE BELOW: Crossroads Guitar Shop has tried to live by this philosophy, since we began operations here at CGS. Gabriel O’Brien, Sales Manager at Larry’s Music Center, describes it so well in this article. It has been VERY DIFFICULT to be successful. Thank-you to all of our open minded customer's who "get it" !!! Thanks to all of our friendly "competitors" who makeup the other INDEPENDENT shops in our area. (We don't really compete. We help each other) A special thanks to Aaron Keener, Rich Delos Reyes, Jim Jacobs and many of our CGS friends, who have always stepped up with 110% effort and needed skills that enhanced our efforts. All of us at CGS hope, and with your continued support, we can continue to stay here and provide the best customer service and experience possible. Come see us! Vince Nettuno, Owner Note: Fender makes great products. We all know this

    Gabriel O’Brien, Sales Manager at Larry’s Music Center, addresses the broader issues behind Fender's decision to sell products direct to consumers online.

  • I just had my 60's classic player MIM Strat fitted with David Allen 60s Rock & Blues pickups - incredible! What a great improvement in tone from the crappy stock pickups. Thanks to CGS for recommending these. They have a full-sounding warm vintage tone, like I remember from pre-CBS 1960s strats. Thanks also to Aaron for wiring the tone knob to the bridge and middle pickups for no extra labor charge. Now I can dial down the extra treble in the bridge pickup and get nice Sultans of Swing and Sweet Home Alabama tones without the excess "quack" in the in-between bridge/middle position. Aaron, you're a class act! Crossroads Guitar Shop is the best!

  • Hello All! As a local, privately-owned business there are times in which we incur unexpected operations costs to run the business. In our shopping center, ALL of the businesses here have just received a letter, announcing a 14% increase in monthly rent, effective July 1st. Unfortunately, when this happens we have to raise pricing of our services and products, It's just the nature of the beast. Regardless, Crossroads Guitar Shop will never compromise in providing you the best service and quality guitars and basses. We apologize in advance for the raise in price but to be competitive, it's sometimes necessary to follow the herd. Ya' heard? Love, Vince, Aaron, Rich and David.
