Why are you called Shoreline Music if you're in the mountains?
For our first 10 years, we were located on the Southern California coastline, first in Santa Barbara and then in San Diego. When we moved to Durango in 2004, 'Durango Music' and 'Mountain Music' were already taken. Plus with all the lakes around here, there are still plenty of shorelines.
What is the swoop in your logo?
It's the hint of a guitar—the "O" in "shoreline" forms the soundhole. Or a wave. Or whatever you want it to be.
From the New Oxford American Dictionary: Complement : verb | ˈkämpləmənt | : to add to (something) in a way that enhances or improves it; make perfect.When you buy better guitar strings, a more comfortable strap, or a more accurate tuner, you're not merely replacing an old part—you're enhancing and improving your music-making experience.

What guitar should I get?
Give us a call or drop us a line and let's chat. We've learned after decades of selling nice guitars that there's no one correct answer, there's no single builder or tonewood combination or body shape that is necessarily best.
What pickup should I get?
Same story. You're probably fine just grabbing a K&K Pure Mini, but let's chat just to be sure.
What strings should I get?
This one's easy: John Pearse.
What is Affirm?
Affirm is a means to finance your purchase from our store. There are, of course, lots of credit providers who offer a similar service—in fact, because we offer Paypal as a checkout option, you can always pay with Paypal Credit. But I chose to offer Affirm because it is by far the easiest to use, it's incredibly mobile-friendly, and it offers reasonable and transparent rates to most buyers.
