Does anyone remember what the name was of that GREAT old guitar shop which use to be on the east side of 19th ave./Broadway ave.
Approx 1 block south of Lake st.? I bought my very first electric bass there. The owner was older and cool. I remember that he had a brother in the business too.
There use to be a jewelry store just south of the guitar store too.
My wife and I were just there on 19th trying to remember which location it was..but my memory of the exact building location does not help -LOL.
I HOPE someone can provide an answer to this..thanks all

You being a present-day Melrose Park retard wouldn't have any such higher interests I'm sure.
