Dream Guitars® was started by Paul Heumiller and fingerstyle guitarist extraordinaire Martin Simpson. The idea was to gather together the finest guitars in the world and to offer them in an honorable fashion with real expertise and guidance.

Players Say: "Dream Guitars is a fantastic place! I’ve never been to a shop that had so many exquisite instruments available. It’s so important to know all of your options when it’s time to purchase a high-end instrument. The staff is friendly to work with, and their insight about the inventory is extensive. This is one of the best places in the country to buy a guitar. The repair services are fantastic as well. I’ve had electronics installed on high-end instruments and minor tweaks made as well; each service made the instruments even better."
