About Mass Street Music

Store front view from the outside at Mass Street MusicWe're an independent music instrument store located in the heart of Lawrence, Kansas - just a stone's throw from Kansas City and Topeka. You'll find us at the corner of 14th & Massachusetts Street – known locally as 'Mass Street'. For 30 years, we've been the quality resource for musicians to find great guitars and gear and get exceptional repair work done. Whether it's a guitar for your child, your first banjo or your dream guitar (at last!), we strive to provide the best instruments and best service around. What sets us apart from other stores is our excellent customer service, unique gear, our knowledgeable staff, and our dedication to helping you get what you're looking for.

We have a well-considered collection of gear in our store, at many different price levels – the introductory 'starter guitar' is treated with as much care and consideration as the 'cadillac' electric or acoustic, or that prized, out-of-this-world vintage Martin. Every new instrument gets a free set up from one of our four luthiers too. All used and consignment gear is carefully assessed by our staff and luthiers, before it ever goes on the floor or online. We are happy to do custom and special orders and our Repair Shop is second to none - from strap buttons to mods to full restorations. Lawrence has a vibrant music community – and has for decades. We're proud to be part of it. We love playing music and we want you to too!

Stay in touch with us by checking our News, attending one of our Events, checking out our deals on Facebook or Twitter, or just stop by the store and say hello. More on the unique history of Mass Street Music can be found on our blog.
