I had a very satisfying experience when I bought my new Taylor guitar from Zach Smith. I arrived that afternoon with my Guild guitar, planning to trade it in for a new guitar. I did not have a specific guitar in mind and Zach was especially skilled at drawing my musical goals out of me for my new guitar experience. After talking with me about my experience over the years and my goals, he brought three guitars to me to try out, He then played them himself so I could hear how each one sounded as he played it facing me directly. The Taylor that I chose from those offerings has turned out to be just right for my folkie playing style and the guitar-picking sound I like. When I play it, to this day, I always think of how enjoyable that shopping experience was, and how well Zach listened to and heard the specifics of my goals with this purchase. He gave me a good trade-in value for my Guild, Zach himself is a fine musician. He so enjoys playing music as well as helping his customers get the most enjoyment they can when they play their music. Do stop by at his new business for your musical needs! Thanks Zach!


Zach is a renaissance man - he can do it all when it comes to all things guitars!

I first met him when I signed up for guitar lessons. He is a great teacher - so patient and very good at teaching all styles of play. He has given me the confidence to go much further in developing my skills and who knows, play out some day. I have bought several instruments from him and trust his judgment completely. He also has provided phenomenal service whenever I need a guitar repair or instrument re-strung. I will always come back to him whenever I need anything for my guitars. 


I've been bringing my gear and questions to Zach for about 5 years now. I'm absolutely honored to have someone like him within driving distance. He is so knowledgeable and honest. My 12 year old son recently got a brand new Jagstang from Fender and the bridge alignment was off when it arrived. Zach fixed it within a week, explained everything, gave us some great care tips and charged me a super reasonable rate. I will never go anywhere else. He's absolutely phenomenal. Top notch!
