30th Street Guitars — 234 West 27th Street

As a kid, Matt Brewster loved to take guitars apart and rebuild them. He is one of the lucky few who never had to grow up; he turned his hobby and passion into a profession at his own repair shop. 30th Street Guitars sells used and vintage guitars, from beginner level to upper-echelon. Most are electric, but a few are acoustic, and there are a some basses hoping to find new owners as well.
