Without question the best guitar shop I've ever been to. Great vibe, like walking into a mates living room, one filled with guitars. Great range of instruments and very welcoming people. I was encouraged to play anything, with zero pressure to buy. Was even offered a cup of tea while I was noodling away on a couple of resonators (one of which I left with). It really is a fantastic store, and the complete opposite experience of some other cooperate cookie cutter style guitar shops. It's the sort of place you could just hang out, see what's new in and not feel pressure to 'buy or leave'. These guys really get it right. It would be worth looking for cheap flights from wherever you are in NZ next time you're thinking about a new guitar.
