Fine Violin

Best place to buy a classical guitar in NY?

I am going to be in Clark, NJ next week. I'd like to come back to Atlanta with a guitar. Any suggestions?

Ok - there are going to be all kinds of answers, but let me give you my .02
In NYC and the surrounding area there are tons of "big box" guitar stores - don't go there.
There are also tons of "players' " boutiques. If you were asking about electric or even steel-string acoustics my answer would be very different... but you asked about "classical guitar" specifically. That trade is a lot more like fine violins and cellos than it is like the typical guitar store.

The best classical guitar dealers are sort of tucked away (Beverly at the Guitar Salon works by herself in Greenwich Village) and you're going to have to call ahead of time to make an appointment so you will have the help you need. I wish you would have listed your price range b/c the places I'm going to list are for pro or semi-pro instruments. If you want a $300 Yamaha, you can get that at Guitar Center... but a $3000 Ramirez is a different animal. So here's a few places to get you started. I'm familiar with these and know them as reliable dealers - but I've also included a list at the end with other stores/studios you can check out.

My teacher (30 yrs ago - but we keep in touch) actually turned me on to these particular resources when I was looking for a better instrument recently.
