Why Johnny Guitar's?

Rockin' Murfreesboro since 2007

Definitely NOT Your Pappy's Guitar Store, and here's why...

You're welcome to come in anytime and try out as many guitars as you like. Plug-in and play! We've even got a PA equipped stage waiting for you to come in and perform, if you like.

Why is that so important to us? Because we remember being kids and getting chased out of our local guitar store because all we could afford to do was stand there and drool at our dream guitars and try to imagine what they sounded like. Occasionally we could try them out, but not without some grumpy old salesman breathing down our necks during our entire two minute limit. That's no fun, and we think fun and music is what guitars are all about.
