Best Guitar-and-Gear Repair For Girls (2008)

SARAH'S GUITARS

Actually, Sarah and her staff at SARAH'S GUITARS don't discriminate by sex; they provide great rock music gear and repair for everyone. But while such places often exude a thick cloud of old-fashioned macho even in 2002, a woman musician can breathe freely here. Sarah knows her stuff (she's the kickass lead guitarist of the band Slut 'Em Go) and has a comfortable personal approach. Customers may have to step over parts of disemboweled amps to get a gander at the axes for sale; she keeps a small selection in the squarefootagely challenged workshop that also serves as storefront. But if you don't find what you're looking for, you can bet Sarah will find it for you.
