Gruhn Guitars

Nashville, Tenn. — Gruhn Guitars is pleased to announce its upcoming move to 2120 8th Avenue South in the up-and-coming Eighth Avenue South corridor. The company will begin renovations on the new space in early 2013 and plans to open in late spring. The store will remain open at 400 Broadway until moving to the new location.

The ground floor of the new store will feature a larger showroom allowing the store to display its full inventory of vintage, used and new instruments and providing additional space for instrument trial rooms and an appraisal inspection area. The 2nd floor will include a high-end showroom, administrative offices, and instrument case storage. The top level will house Gruhn Guitars' world renowned repair shop, shipping and receiving, and a photography studio. Ample customer parking will be available on site.

"We are looking forward to moving to a larger building with a better floor layout and ample parking to permit us to provide a better environment for our customers to view and play our fine selection of vintage, used, and new instruments," said George Gruhn. "This is an exciting time for us. We will miss being next door to the Ryman Auditorium and other downtown landmarks, but our new location puts us within minutes of all of these attractions plus much closer to Music Row and numerous other music business enterprises. It will be a great new home for Gruhn Guitars."

-----------------

George Gruhn opened his first downtown location on 4th Avenue in January 1970 and moved the store to its second location at 410 Broadway six years later. Gruhn Guitars has been doing business in its current location at 400 Broadway since 1993. 2120 8th Avenue South formerly housed the alternative weekly publication Nashville Scene and was most recently occupied by Emma, a local email marketing firm.
