    Impressive spread there... but I spotted Waldo immediately! ;-)

    Been to your shop a handful of times over the years and always been impressed with the depth and variety. One of the few places I could go and compare several vintage acoustic archtops or see how a guitar of mine might stack up to something I'm considering by grabbing the same model from your wall. Nice job.

    Re: THE Les Paul Wall at Chicago Music Exchange❤️🔥

    I visited last June when I was in town , and even though I did not play her at the time , I snagged a 1969 Dan Armstrong Plexiglass guitar with the Rock Treble pickup which just sounds amazing and plays amazing . I did not expect the booming screaming glorious tone coming from the Rock Treble pickup , but it makes sense as this guitar has a rich and glorious sound . Thanks CME !

    Look at this fine shop with such a warm and inviting Atmosphere with several big size couches and books and several rooms to plug in and try out an instrument . Guess what the best part of this is ? The no hassle environment where you can play and think without someone nagging you ! This place Rocks . Thanks CME !

    Seriously the best part of my visit last year to the Windy City was CME , no stress , no fuss , and CME is loaded to the gills, rafters and everywhere in between with many varieties of instruments , amps , pedals , and everything else !

    I have been there and seen that wall. It is glorious!!!

    I get up to Chicago occasionally on business and try to make it to CME when I can. One time I got to play multiple vintage J45s! Another time multiple vintage ES-335s! I have bought a vintage Marshall amp from CME. The service has always been top notch!

    I like the honest descriptions of your vintage guitars for sale. Even the smallest change to original state is mentioned, nothing left out. We have a shop here where always "Everything is original" even when the pictures show things are not.

    Oh yeah, my vintage team is no joke! Those guys have been doing it a long time and we're at almost every vintage show across the country so the knowledge runs deep. Plus, no one wants to get a guitar that isn't what its supposed to be! I appreciate the kinds words and will pass this one to them! David A

    Purchased a 60th anniversary 1960 (V3) from David and received it on Friday. I can't put this thing down! The best feel and sounding guitar that I've owned. Gibson has done an amazing job with these. Thanks so much for your help David A!

    I am going to have to visit the store in person some day. Iíve bought four guitars from your store through the years, but by mail. The wall of LPís would defiantly be worth the trip!

    Amazing LP selection, just not able to get that amount of choice in a single shop here in the UK!

    ...noticed the amps too. Trying one out through one of those mini JCM800s or the silver jubilees - would be very hard not to pull the trigger on a purchase!

    Thanks for the post - fun thread!
