ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Update for Nov. 7
Frank Gross, proprietor of Thunder Road Guitars who has until now been working out of a live-work space on Harbor Ave S.W. and plying his trade on the web, shared the news that his vintage and used guitar business has found a brick and mortar home in West Seattle.

Thunder Road Guitars hopes to open up mid-November at 3916 California Ave S.W. (the old Olivia's Consignment for Kids shop), according to Gross.

A grand opening celebration is set for Nov. 23 and 24 (please see the flyer link above for more details).

Their hours will be Wednesday - Saturday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and by appointment Sunday - Tuesday.

"The idea behind our By Appointment days is to offer customers the opportunity to have the shop to themselves to test drive their dream guitar and have our undivided attention," Gross said in an email.

Thunder Road intends to offer vintage amps and effects pedals along with the basic necessities of a "gigging musician" including strings, picks, cables and the like, according to Gross.
