Hello to all who are reading this. I picked up a "Main Street Guitar Company" acoustic guitar in a pawn shop a month or so ago. Got it for under $100. I own several other guitars, including a 22 year old Yamaha 12-string dread, Sigma (Martin) classical, Martin backpacker guitar, Tyler Mountain banjitar, Fender acoustic electric, and a Fender Mexican strat. I haven't been able to find any information on the web about the "Main Street Guitar Company" guitar. All I know is that it's made in China. It's a cheap guitar, but for some lucky reason, the action on the fretboard is buttery and the tone is crisp and clear (light strings used). I was wondering if anyone has any information about the company that actually makes the "Main Street Guitar Company" brand.

As to who makes them, they seem to come from China is all I know.

 

Good luck

My Main Street Guitar says 'Fort Worth Texas' on the inside label. i live in Fort Worth and actually ran into a shop on Rosedale called 'Main Street Guitars' B4 i ever bought this one or heard of the company.

 

I bought my Main Street Guitar from a pawn shop for $40 and the guitar is factory mint condition.

i cannot believe how flawless the workmanship is on this thing ! ... it sounds fabulous too ! LOL

i'm selling my $500 Fender acoustic now because the Main Street Guitar is superior in sound. flat out.

i thought there has to be a catch to this so i looked to see if it had an adjustable truss rod.... yep, it sure does...(many cheap instruments don't).

They list for around $100 new. How they can even make one for $100 is beyond my reasoning, much less sell it for $100.

 

No, you aren't the only one bewildered by the value and quality of a Main Street Acoustic Guitar. i imagine that everyone that buys one is.
