Saturday Feb 3, West Music, in partnership with D’Addario Strings will be providing a FREE RESTRING on your acoustic or electric guitar from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.!

Staff will be on-hand to help with restrings and will also be available to provide advice on any additional repairs or sets. This offer is limited to one 6-string acoustic steel-string guitar or one 6-string electric guitar per customer. No locking tremolo systems. Guitars will be restrung with appropriate gauge D’Addario guitar strings. Special gauges will not be available.
