Here are some to consider.

Warning...there is a lot of construction in the city.

Folkway Music...a lot of interesting and typically expensive, primarily acoustic instruments. It is small.
Great breakfast, coffee and baked goodies place across the street called Seven Shores

L&M ...5 minutes walk from Folkway

Guitar Corner...not far. Small but it might be interesting

Sherwood Music...not in Waterloo, but a change from L&M.

I'd be happy to meet with you, have a coffee and drive you to these stores.

Where are you staying in Waterloo?

Yes, I am retired and usually available during the day.

I'll likely be in Ottawa (Glebe area) in October. I'm not planning on going to music stores as I have been to most of them in Ottawa. We always stay at a hotel (next to the Canadian Museum of Nature) that is very near to Spaceman.

However, I hope to meet with @amagras and @mhammer at that time. Maybe you could join us?

Cheers

Dave

Re: Guitar Corner, I've been twice to see the Gretschs. They have an unusually large number of them. But no experience buying. I've never quite 'figured out' the owner.

I've been in Sherwood a few times for amp repair in the back by Rich(amplifiersplus.com).
He does fabulous work.
The store is well stocked with a nice layout too.

@1SweetRide and @greco
Depending on what day you're in Waterloo, do you mind if I join you boys for coffee and your guitar shop field trip?

@laristotle I'm fine with that.

I'm assuming that @1SweetRide will want to meet such a charming, intelligent, skilled musician and esteemed GC forum member (How am I doing with the convincing?).

It will be next Wednesday, September 27th
Establishing an exact meeting time might be a bit tough.
Do you know Folkway Music? We could meet you there at AROUND 4:00 pm.
There is coffee place across the street.

If Folkway is not easy for you, we can meet at Sherwood (again, around 4:15 PM). There is a coffee place about a block away (City Cafe).
