01/27/19: We still ‘plugn along things take longer than expected sometimes, but we are not disuaded we will always aspire to complete the mission, which is to bring music to all life.

This is our progress thus far (& not pictured, but our laboratory is all squared away ha ha):

Nice fresh paint “No VOC”! New (…well updated) instrument and microphone display board.

01/09/19: We put out a Facebook (& short Twitter) on the following- Free to a ‘Ridge guitarist!!! We have a used left handed “2005 Cort Earth 100 F“ acoustic guitar with Fishman pre-amp setup. It was donated to us by an awesome person who lives near the coast. We do need to repair the Fishman’s battery cable connector and re-glue the pick guard (the pick guard coming unglued & I’ve checked the pre-amp and it works fine …just one battery connector is broke). Once we fix these two things up we will no doubt consider this guitar to be without any issues & to be such caliber that even a ‘working musician can perform with it. If you or anyone you know of is from the ‘Ridge/impacted by the Camp Fire, please contact GGG. We’d like to hear the person play this guitar jus-a-lil for us. As long as they are a guitarist, we will donate it.

01/06/19: Chuggin’ along we are striving to reopen soon as possible. The faux-brick two panels in picture will have the packs of strings for guitar and other stringed instruments we carry. After this long weekend of remodeling we wanted see at end of the day how some groovy lighting ‘sets the stage.

01/05/19: Just before Christmas (2018) a customer made us aware of a adolescent child staying in a local shelter due to Camp Fire. Childs mother asked the boy what he needs & child said a guitar. We had what we think was just about the right guitar so we set it up & put on new strings, donated it before Christmas. We wanna say ‘play on young lad, play on…

01/01/19: GGG has been open since 09/01/17. All along it has been a struggle to develop a decent customer base. If it wasn’t for the love of music GGG would have surely closed its doors indefinitely. All along it has been a challenge with supplying and manning the shop where only a few customers entered the doors when it was open. Our ‘hats are off to those that have supported our shop through thier purchases. So for the love of music we continue to remodel GGG. The paint has dried and we roughly set up the shop and we will continue to set up to reopening. See pictures below from today.
Please stay tune for the Grand Reopening date soon to announce. When we do open please stop by and buy a guitar pick, a guitar amp, a guitar or any of our guitar and other music instruments or gear or music related merchandise. Thanks a bunch!

12/31/18: Time For Renewal…
On 11/08/2018 the devastating fires in Butte County California named “Camp Fire” ravaged around GGG. We we fortunate that the fires ‘grip didn’t squeeze the building to pulp. Faced with the dilemma of great loss of potential customers or closing shop we decided to ‘keep on keeping on. Well, albeit that GGG is practically speaking —-only a hobby versus a viable businesswe, we will not let that deter us. There’s always at least ‘two sides to everything so we will dwell on the possibility of business picking up at some point making it not just a “hobby”. We are now remodeling with plans to reopen very soon after this new year.

Cool John, tanks, …using camera instead of cell cam did the trick… I’ve retaken and replaced bunch those small pics.

FYI- The three below performances from Chuck, Emiko and Steven I am still working on trying to convert files to acceptable format for this site… So far no dice though, but I’ll continue to try… I bet though I need to purchase some type of software to do it as the free one I tried doesn’t seem to work. Sorry for this-

08/19/17 GGG pre-opening featuring Emiko Wilson here performing “Stairway to Heaven”.

8/22/17… still trying to get these three above vids to load here, but still no ‘dice.

 

Video test (vid taken w/ camera instead of cell phone lets see if it loads right here):… I’ve found vid taken w/ camera came out “AVI” and it too won’t load on this BLOG … well, I wonder what works anyhow to do it… back to drawing board.

 

Never did get those vids figured out… well, I got em’ saved on my hard drive so if I ever do figure out I’ll put em’ up on this site.

 

9/1/17: a great Grand Opening with Da Hotpots they arrived right as scheduled and played their hearts out right till closing time for 3 solid hours! Those guys are so good together! Many guests arrived all with warm heartfelt encouragement for GGG. Some comments were Magalia is for the better with such a music shop, the prices are reasonable, and the shop has a nice warm feeling. We learned allot from our guests and we for certain to apply those teachings to the running of GGG. We thank everyone encouraging and supporting us from bottom of our hearts. We very much appreciate all those coming to the event on 9/1 and also all those who couldn’t make it, but who just as well fully been supporting us in this enterprise.

 

We kept so busy all day and we didn’t even think of taking pics… But please checkout this site’s Product page are pics of the shop taken from the early part of the day right after doing the initial final set up.

 

Regards to the drawing:  Chad won the drawing and got a brand new Himalayan Natural Salt Lamp. To honorably mention is Dustin was  the fourth customer on 9/1 and he received a free Himalayan Natural Salt Lamp (outta the box slightly used on day one of GGG).  A new drawing held for the other new in box lamp on the 2nd!
