cheap guitars at the guitar street



Musicians are by definition cheapos – they put the starving in “starving artist” – so here’s a special feature on picking up a musical bargain in Ochanomizu’s Medai Dori or “Guitar Street”, Tokyo’s music shop district or even “The Guitar Mecca of the (cheapo) Universe”.

Joined by our resident muso extraordinaire TJ Eckleberg, hear our expert commentary on what kind of bargains to look out for. Top bargains include Japan Fender Strats, Telecasters and a plethora of made in Japan boutique effect pedals.

Guitar Street is easy to find, just head to the JR Ochanomizu station and take the Ochanomizu Bashi (bridge) exit.
