About

This store specializes in high-end vintage guitars, banjos and mandolins. It was featured in a New York Times article, on 11/11/12 at p. NJ3, on how the shop survived Superstorm Sandy. According to the article, "The building ... originally housed the first Brooklyn branch of the American Society for the Prevention of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and the organization's seal - a carriage horse protected by an angel - is visible above the front door."

Extraordinary banjo player Dom Flemons shops here, he said, on an episode of Fresh Air with Terry Gross on NPR last week.
