Come experience the Mojo's Music Advantage
At Mojo's Music, we are focused on you, the musician. Large chain stores have the volume but they can't compete on individual attention, expert service, and customer experience.
Price - They rarely beat us on price. There is a thing in this industry called MAP. It is the Minimum Advertised Price that we can list an item for sale. We are free to sell at any price we like but cannot advertise a lower price. You will find our in-store pricing and final deal pricing to be among the most competitive in the business. One additional thought, if you are buying from a place that mails you a catalog, you are paying too much. Those catalogs are not free.
Financing - yes, we have that too. We can offer you anywhere from 6 months to 36 months 0% Interest (in-store only) depending on the item.
Small store/Big Stock - Just because we don't stock it does not mean we cannot get it for you. In many cases, we can have an item here almost as quickly as you can get it shipped to you. We have access to hundreds of brands, just ask.
Service after the sale - We have a great team of skilled repair and service people. Should something happen to your gear, we can usually get you back up and running in very short order. Every guitar purchased at Mojo's Music comes with free restrings and health checks. You buy the strings, we put them on for you. Try that with a mail-order place.
Lessons - We offer 2-4 free lessons with instrument purchase here at Mojo's. That can save you between $40 and $80 right there. Before you buy that item from Amazon, come see what we have to offer.

Store It In A Cool Dry Place (Spoiler Alert: DON'T)
Let's Call this "Store It In A Comfortable, Humidity Controlled Space".
Back in 1990, Muddy Wilbury (Tom Petty) sang those words about his Guitars, Basses, Amplifiers, and Drums; Accordions and Mandolins and Things That Sometimes Hum. While it makes for a really great song, it is an epically bad idea. Anything made of wood needs moisture to stay in good condition. Acoustic Tops will start to pull up, Frets on all instruments will start feeling sharp along the edge of the neck (something we call Fret Sprout). Humidity is your friend.
Bob Taylor (from Taylor Guitars fame) suggests anywhere between 45-55% as being ideal for a guitar. If you can't quite manage that, he says 40-60% is acceptable. You can read more here.
We have yet to find a whole house humidifier that will do the trick once the heat kicks on. If you have a room in your house dedicated to your gear, go grab a small humidifier and keep that room humidified. Better yet, if you keep your guitars in their cases, D'Addario (Planet Waves) makes a great little product to put in your case that keeps everything at a perfect humidity. We sell them here in the store. Call us or drop by and grab one. Gear is an expensive investment. Don't let a little thing like humidity ruin it for you.
