Since relocating to the heart of the Downtown Arts District, Cowtown Guitars has gotten bigger and better—and its reputation as a classic six-string seller remains unmatched. Everything you desire is here: 1965 Fender Jazzmaster, 1970 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop—need we go on? Just like he does on Pawn Stars, Cowtown co-owner Jesse Amoroso (whose new band, Crazy Chief, is worth checking out) will appraise your vintage ax gratis. More than just a music-gear paradise, Cowtown is deeply involved in our community, as evidenced by the fact Amoroso is collecting guitars for a philanthropic auction to help families impacted by autism. In sum, Cowtown possesses real rock ’n’ roll heart.
