McCabe’s Guitar Shop has been strumming along since 1958. The store specializes in acoustic and folk instruments and you can drop in and pluck a guitar, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, bouzouki or sitar. But they’re not hidebound – you can also plug into an amp and go electric if that’s your preference. The store has rentals, lessons, repairs – even free coffee.
A rich parade of artists have performed live in the shop, including such luminaries as Lucinda Williams, Jackson Browne and Gil Scott-Heron.
