Wade's Guitar Shop is a small, brick and mortar shop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since 1989 we have been selling, buying, trading, and repairing guitars for the music community. Alex and Wade are your inside guys and once a month they get together in front of the cameras to talk about guitars, effects, amps, repair tips, and anything else "guitar". Each episode is less than an hour and won't bore you to tears. If you love guitar shops, this is the show for you.

Makes me want to visit Milwaukee!
It's the next best thing to hanging out in your local guitar shop, learning about gear and how to take care of it. I usually listen to the podcast first and then go back to scan the video for anything I need to see. Well-produced and always interesting - the planning and editing that goes into this really shows. If Wade's Guitar Shop was in my town, I'd probably move in.
Love the Shop, Love the Podcast
