Here’s what some of our customers are saying about Top Shelf!

Jeff (owner) has resurrected a lot of broken equipment and guitars for my family and friends over the years. He asks intelligent questions to understand your playing style and what you need so he can make suggestions. Being an incredible musician in his own right he understands these things. When you buy something from him all the years of knowledge and guidance, standing behind the gear is included in the price. He made the mistakes so you don't have to! If you want cheap cheap go see a clerk at a big box store where they employ kids who don't know products. As a wise man once told me ``buy the best and you only cry once``. You can find the best at Top Shelf!- Dan
Nice little shop with different selections of new acoustics, ukeleles, used electric guitars and amps of all sizes. Great selection of parts, strings and accessories not seen in many other stores! Very approachable and kind staff, good small business.- Chris
I called at about 5:45 p.m. and they close at 6, I was in dire need of getting my electronic drum fixed. As I have read previous reviews they had stayed open late for other customers, so i figured I'd give it a shot. Long story short, he said come on in. He had me all fixed up ready to go in less than 5 minutes. A++++++ not to many stand up businesses around anymore, but I would recommend them all day long. And that was my first time in the shop. It's not like I'm a regular customers. Thank you guys!!!- Al
Great guitar shop. I mostly go there for small parts and strings however, I took my Les Paul for a set up and the result was great and service was pretty quick.- Jose
