Anyone know where to find a guitar/music shop?
« on: April 29, 2012, 03:10:11 pm »
I just moved to Korea and I am looking to buy a guitar soon (when I get money). Does anyone know where I could find a place that has a decent selection of instruments and lets customers play before buying? I am in living in Busan, so I would prefer suggestions in this area. Thanks

There is a place called Shine Guitar in Busan. I have been there and the owner is a great guy, They fixed my acoustic after which had a really nasty crack in the headstock.

A great selection of guitars and music books.

This is a map & the phone number. Sorry but I lost the English directions. I took the bus there, hopped on the subway, switched trains and went a couple of more stops, took exit 4 I think and it was about a 10 minute walk.

Ask a CT to translate if you don't know. It's easy to find.

Go to Nakwon Arcade in Seoul.

It is the single largest collection of instrument retailers I have ever seen. I went up from Yeosu to buy my guitar there, and it was well worth the travel. You'll probably have more choice in Busan than I did in Yeosu, but it's worth the journey just to see the place, and it's more than likely they'll have whatever guitar you might be looking for.
