I've owned Tom Anderson Crowdsters in the past but have always wanted one without the electric pickups when I happened to see this one on the Shoreline Music site. My wife and I dropped by to take a look at it and give it a strum or two. It turned out to be just what I was looking for and John was a great guy to deal with. All in all a great purchase experience and a real hidden gem of a guitar shop in Durango. I highly recommend dropping by to check out Johns inventory.
