New In Wicker Park: Avenue N Guitars


Yes, a nifty new guitar shop has opened up in Wicker Park- Avenue N Guitars (1823 W. North Ave.). The shop is run by some very nice folks. They buy used instruments and sell new and vintage acoustics and electrics as well as offer lessons and repairs.

Oh, and guess who bought the very first acoustic guitar they sold? Yours truly.

I picked up a spruce-top parlor-sized guitar by Art & Lutherie for a song (get it? Har.). I had two guitars I was choosing from, and it wasn’t until they rung up my sale that we noticed the serial number on the model I chose ends in “666,” which will at least save me a midnight trip to the crossroads.

The Grand Opening is being held on Saturday September 16th from 12-7 PM with music, giveaways and refreshments.

Stop by and tell ’em nikkos sent ya!
