5 Star shout-out to Andrew for being professionally helpful and pleasant during a long-distance call/search for a certain Start.

This store made me wish I was a better guitar player. I mean to say, craftsmanship is right on the square in downtown Garland at Jimmy Wallace. Good grief!!! I saw the very best in amps and guitars. And parts and pickups were ready, as were the perfect strings. The quality is obvious. Enjoy the vibe. Save your funds up and shop here for the perfect guitar to change your life.

To Mike and everyone at Jimmy Wallace Guitars...what can I say? Having purchased instruments from Vegas, to Nashville to Del Rio, and all places in between, you guys made me feel like family and treated me even better! You have a lifelong customer and I will send EVERYONE that I know your way. LOVE my “new” 1953 Gibson SJ....truly thrilled with this incredible instrument and incredible experience. Thank you and God Bless!
