Introducing "STRUMAWAY" service from Main Street Music Short term rentals of fine acoustic guitars.

Today, with the airlines charging an average of $35 in each direction for checking a second bag, it has become prohibitively expensive to travel with your guitar.  Imagine instead if you could have a hassle-free quality instrument provided to you for your stay in the Hudson Valley.

We’re not telemarketers, we’re musicians, and we know what musician’s need.  We will deliver a quality  acoustic guitar, freshly strung, with comfortable action, in either a hard shell case or padded back-packable gig bag, together with everything you might need including strap, capo, tuner, picks and an extra set of strings just in case, all for a low cost that is comparable, and in many cases, lower that traveling with your own guitar.
To make it truly hassle-free, we'll even deliver your guitar to you and pick it up from you wherever it’s most convenient for you; at the airport or train station, at the place where you are staying, or anywhere else you choose, all for a reasonable delivery fee.  You can also avoid the delivery fee by picking up your guitar from out store location at 393 Main Street in Beacon, NY.
No more lugging your instrument through crowded airports or train stations; no more worrying what the airline might do to your precious guitar.  Simply call STRUMAWAY (serviced by Main Street Music) at 845-765-8548 to reserve your instrument now.

For a list of guitars and prices, see examples below: (additional guitars also available at similar pricing).

Note: Not all guitars are available at all times. Some electric guitars and other instruments may also be available upon inquiry.   We also have significantly reduced monthly rental rates for students taking lessons at our store)

A "000" size cutaway acoustic-electric featuring a solid Spruce top and Mahogany sides and back.

From the Blueridge website: “Many players consider the 000 14-fret guitar to be the ideal body size. With its relatively wide lower bout and shallow depth it gives the most tone & volume in an easy-handling package. Blueridge™ Contemporary Series guitars feature tops of select, solid spruce with parabolic, forward X-bracing. A popular new option is the cutaway model with on-board electronics by Fishman®.”
