30 Years and Still Going Strong!

July 1982. This date may seem insignificant to most people. For some it’s just another month of summer 30 years ago. For some people, like me, it seems like an arbitrary date before we were born when people had crazy hair and wore crazier clothes. Still, for some it marks the beginning of a journey into rock and roll that isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

Dave Rogers knew one thing: he liked guitars. Growing up in Marshfield Wi, Dave played in bands and fell in love with the world of guitars early. When it came time to figure out what he wanted to do for the rest of his life he went back to the one thing he knew the best: Guitars. Having been turned down by other music shops for his lack of knowledge in other areas of musical instruments he finally listened to the chiding of some of his buddies and just started selling his own guitars and replacing them as he sold them.

That was 30 years ago. Today Dave’s Guitar Shop stands as the Mecca of guitar shops. While there are countless other great guitar shops out there today, few offer the expansive selection and huge show room that we do and none offer the museum of nearly 500 vintage guitars and amps featuring such perfect examples of early Fender and Gibson guitars that the companies themselves envy them. Year after year we stand as a top 10 dealer in all of the Major brands and continue to enjoy the opportunity of bringing you the latest and greatest guitars from your favorite company.

It has been a great 30 years and we have no plans of slowing down. A big Thank You to all of you who have made the last 30 years possible! We look forward to many more years of the same!
