Featured Guitar Links...

If you have come to this page from a search engine or another website...

From time to time we all come across websites we weren't expecting to find.

Here are some I'd like to share, for no other reason that you might enjoy them.
I've not necessarily done business with those that are have items to sell.

Most recent first...
