   Welcome to our Web site
What you can’t see on our web site is the incredible world class service you’ll receive by owners George and Inda Janis. The Janis family has been serving musicians and families in Manteca and surrounding communities for over 50 years and are continuing that tradition today. We are more than  just a guitar shop. We carry a full line of musical products and accessories.

we wish to thank everyone for their understanding this past few months  for our store hours. Let me explain. In July of 2013 I was diagnosed with liver cancer. I was referred to California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco for treatment and was treated with an R.F. Ablation procedure. That stopped the cancer, but I still required a transplant and was put on the National Registry. With weekly blood tests and monthly scans, I waited for an organ. Last December 21st at 3:00pm I received a call that an organ may be available and to start driving. We arrived in San Francisco at 9:00pm driving through the worst storm of the year. We were told that paperwork and more test needed to be done. At about 2:00am on the 22nd we were told that we had a match and the surgery would be at 4:00am. I was to spend approximately 30 days in or near the hospital where they could monitor the new organ. My recovery went fairly smooth and I was home in late January to continue my recovery. In mid-April, I came down with pneumonia and had to return to San Francisco for a week. Again thank you for your understanding while we struggle through this first year. The Music Business is  more than our friends it’s our family. To all those who were aware, thank you so much for all your prayers!
