Long Beach Guitar Repair Grand Opening

Hey LBAM, you may already know that World of Strings, the Long Beach institution of 50 years, shut down last month. Well, good news is that 3 of the über talented guitar techs and luthiers are back in biz in the LBC. They invited me (and LBAM, of course) to the grand opening event at their shop next Saturday.

There will be an awesome live Jazz band playing, food, drinks, and good vibrations happening to launch off the new repair shop. Come one, come all. But fair warning the shop is small, so expect to be intimate with one another (in an innocent way). It'll be a rockin' time!

    Nice munchies, good live music, cool T-shirts, gorgeous guiars on the walls, but mostly I'm just happy that Long Beach still has a home for the luthiers from the late, lamented World of Strings!

    The new store is tiny, but wonderfully full of guitar making toolery. Best wishes on your opening, LB Guitar Repair!

    I checked it out. It's just east if the old WOS. Small place but very cool.

    Sorry to miss this event and Guillermo. I have heard a couple people state that this is at the old store when in fact the address on this site puts it farther east on 7th.

    I used to live down the street from WOS, I did not hear that they had closed. Happy to hear that there will be music back in the old space!
