Guitars, Supplies, Sheet Music
If you’re looking for quality hand crafted guitars, I highly recommend Armin Kelly of Guitars International in Shaker Heights. I’ve sent my students to him for years, and he’s always treated them well. Many of the best players in the greater Cleveland area have bought their guitars from Armin. The reason is simple: he carries the best.

You’ll find, for example, the guitar works of Aguado, Carcassi, Coste, Giuliani, Mertz, Regondi, Sor, and many others.
