  • 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.

  • Crossroads Guitar Shop is the kind of music store you enjoy going to. The staff knows what their stuff and are incredibly helpful. They are willing to talk guitars without seeing their customers as dollar signs. I purchased a Reverend Club King and had them give my Taylor the Pleck treatment. I'll definitely be doing business with these guys for a long time. Keep up the outstanding work!

  • The balls in y'alls court, because we're serving this beauty up for sale. 2007 Gibson Flying V Robot. Robot you ask? Yes, robot. It automatically tunes to 440, open G, open D...etc,etc. It's been Plek'd and set up of course and just for giggles we sent it to Gibson to get everything reworked and replaced if it needed it. Technically, it's used but visually and playability wise it's brand spanking new. $1000.00 OBO and again, no phone calls please, come visit us...we don't bite. Not that much at least.
