    Guitar Guys on 30th Street in Newark...

    Anyone been?

    It's been quite a while since I've had to go to Newark for anything (even though I live 20 minutes away). Was passing through a few nights ago and saw this place. I would have stopped but they were closed. :atoz:
     
  2. I've been there when it was in a little shop down a little access rd. off 79. They've since moved into a bigger shop and I haven't been to the new place yet. From what I know about them is that they were the old crew from Sheets and Sons over there by the mall before there was an awful deal that went down when John Sheets sold the place to the new buyer. The new buyer pretty much forced John out of the building and fired the entire crew so he could hire people for less money and get cheaper gear in there. John and a few guys started up Guitar Guys and it has since destroyed the competition between S&S. No one goes to S&S anymore except mom's buying their kids their first instrument. In fact, someone said that it had moved or closed down all together. Either or, I've got to get over to Newark and check out the new shop. They've got Fender, G&L, Ibanez, etc., at least they did in the older shop.

    I didn't see it; I think it's gone.

    I would have gone today if it weren't for the weather. I need strings. I called around to see who would have what I wanted. No one. Really, how hard is it to stock a 5-string set, nickel, light to medium-light gauge, with a taperwound B? It's not like I'm asking for anything specif...oh...wait...

    Looks like I have to go to Columbus for them. :rolleyes:
     
  4. Or you could get them online from here.

    I don't really shop online, especially when it's something I can get TODAY by walking into a store. I just didn't want to go anywhere today, i'm lazy. :p
     
  7. Hey guys, should we start planning another Cinci GTG for this March again? We started doing it last year about this time...?
     
  8. That's cool. Same place?

  13. Yeah, I'm pretty sure the old Sheets & Sons is gone now. I tried stopping by several weeks ago before a gig...

    Just fyi, it might be worth sending an e-mail to Pete Skjold. His workshop is about 25 miles from Mt. Vernon. His strings are nickel-plated steel in gauges 45-65-80-100-128 with a tapered B-string. I have them on my Hanewinckel at the moment. They seem like nice strings to me. Of course, right now, Pete is busy preparing for NAMM....
