FEATURED SHOP OF THE MONTH
10 Chequers Court
Huntingdon. Cambs. PE29 3LJ
Musicstreet in Huntingdon, England is the dream of Tony Rawson, who started playing guitar at the age of 14. After learning from his uncle, a finger style player, and Rob Harris, an in demand session guitar player in the UK, Tony became a guitar teacher himself, while also playing in various bands and working at his favorite guitar store, Machinehead Music, as a demonstrator. (Fun fact -- Jeff Pumfrett, the owner of Machinehead Music, went on to open World Guitars, which was a Guitar Shop Tees featured shop in 2015!)
In January 2014, Tony took the leap to open his own shop, and named it Musicstreet “in anticipation of taking up more units in the street when we eventually expand... making the street a 'music' street.”
The team at Musicstreet are all working musicians who bring their first-hand experience of how the gear works in the real world to the shop, providing valuable knowledge and information to customers when they’re looking to buy the right gear.
The shop is the flagship store for Duesenberg and is one of the largest dealers of PRS. They also carry Musicman, Gretsch, Eastman, EVH, Ibanez, Fender, Collings, Martin, Maton, Larrivee, Yamaha, Lowden, Huss & Dalton. New York-based Hahn Guitars and the UK’s own Patrick James Eggle Guitars are always in high demand and always on order.
Best, of all, every guitar is meticulously setup in store, as the guys are super fussy about how everything plays and want to make sure every customer is happy!
