At the Skip’s Music guitar department, our product specialists have extensive knowledge that has been amassed by years of hands-on experience with the instruments, effects, and amplifiers used in creating some of the grandest sounds ever created.

By taking our time and sitting down with each guitar, amplifier, and effect, we can better show you the practical applications of each piece of gear, some interesting tricks, and the history and development of products as you try them out. Plus, you can hang out with a great group of people here that truly care whether you get the best piece of equipment for you!
