Thriving in Madison!

To say that the city of Madison, Wisconsin has been nice to Dave’s Guitar Shop would be an understatement by a large margin.

Wisconsin has always been a nice home for Dave’s, but it could not be much clearer that Madison has been needing a new guitar shop for some time now. We were happy to oblige, and thus, we entered the capitol’s gates June first of this year. It was a difficult start, trying to find the ideal building that featured just the right floor space to properly showcase our guitars and amplifiers and enough space for the other back-end requirements needed for running a guitar shop. Requirements such as guitar case storage, repair benches, a lesson area, and a break room for our employees, etc. We believe that we have found a good one, incorporating all of the features required and one that we are sure that you are going to love!

Enter the front of house – electrics across the board! From brands like Fender, Paul Reed Smith, Gretsch, Rickenbacker and Collings among others, Dave’s Guitar Shop Madison has much to offer in terms of the finest electric guitars available. Walking in feels warm and inviting, as the warm reds in the color scheme mix well with the hard wood floors!

Our staff is as friendly and knowledgeable as ever, so don’t hesitate to ask them about anything you need to know! David Fouts, an electric guitar aficionado, holds one of his favorite Collings guitars in the store!

Once you visit the electric room, don’t miss the relaxing and quiet acoustic room towards the back of the store. This is where Dave’s Guitar Shop Madison is truly going to shine!

This room is just stunning. Feel free to lose yourself for hours strumming or picking away with any of our guitars such as Goodall, Collings, Huss & Dalton, Taylor and Martin among others. You can play these, along with a large assortment of Rainsong, Gretsch, and the like at your leisure in the quiet confines of our acoustic room.

Since opening our doors this June, Dave’s Guitar Shop Madison has been thriving – thanks to customers like you! The support has been overwhelming and appreciated. We are looking forward to providing many years of premium service. Thank you for making this a possibility. We can’t wait to see you in our state’s capitol!
