Hi Everyone! Just got in the the 2nd order of Rivolta Guitars and the Friedman JEL head and cab! Jake E. was cool enough to sign the head since they only made 50 of them and we have the 2nd. cab on the way to complete the stack so Jon Faulkner will stop calling me names! lol


Hey Everyone! Just got in our first shipment of the new Danelectro Guitars! They blew us away at NAMM and we have been patiently waiting to get them in the store. These modern versions of the classics have gotten some serious upgrades in craftsmanship and hardware while still maintaining that classic lipstick pickup tone!

Lee Signature Friedman hand wired head with Custom USA made transformers, 4 x EL34 power tubes and 5 x 12AX7 preamp tubes.

A single button foot switch for channel selections and it also has a 4, 8 and 16 ohm Impedance selector switch. We are taking pre-orders now and can't wait to rattle some windows in the store!!!!

[05/01/20]   Hi Everyone!

As you may know the State of Idaho announced today that Retail stores can open back up on May 1st under certain guidelines. So, to stay in compliance we will only be allowing 2 people in the store at a time and we will be requiring everyone who comes into the store to wear a face mask and sanitize their hands before touching anything. If you don't have a mask or don't want to wait we are still going to be offering curbside drop off/pick up. To avoid any issues we have to be very strict about following the policy's for social distancing and keeping everything in the store sanitized. The store will be open Monday - Friday 11:00am to 5:00pm and Saturday 11:00am to 4:00pm. If you need to make any special arrangements or have any questions please give us a call at 208-343-2320. Thank you all for hanging in there! Stay safe and stay healthy!



[04/15/20]   Hi Everyone!

As you may know the State of Idaho is on a lockdown for non-essential businesses until April 30th. We are going to be offering curbside drop off/pick up and we will also be allowed to let one customer in the store at a time for purchases only. As much as I would love to have everyone come in and jam or hangout, we have to be very strict about following the policy's for social distancing and keeping everything in the store sanitized. The store hours will be Monday - Friday Noon to 5:00pm. If you need to make special arrangements or have any questions please give us a call at 208-343-2320. Thank you all in advance for your understanding, love and support!! Stay safe and healthy!



[03/27/20]   Hi Everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I am healing up just fine from the surgery and I want to say thank you for all your love and support! As we all know we are on a 21 day state wide shut down for non-essential business's. Since we offer in house guitar/amp service and repair starting next week if you have anything in the store thats ready for pick up we will call and set up a time between 9am and 12pm for you to pick up your gear curbside. We will not be letting anyone in the store during this time. I hope everyone is staying safe and working on their chops because nothing is more healing than music.

[03/23/20]   Hey Everyone! Just wanted to give an update on my surgery and the store hours during the Covid-19 pandemic. The surgery went well but I need to lay low for the next week while I'm recovering (Doctors orders). The store will be closed during this time but if anyone needs anything please email me at [email protected] or message me through messenger. You can also contact me through our website 12thfretmusic.com and Steven or I will be more than happy to help with what you need. I will give updates during the week regarding our hours for next week. Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Hey Everyone!! Last day of NAMM! Got to play some of the new Gibson basses on Day 2 just forgot to post the photo. oops! Had a meeting with Yamaha to check out there new gear and just had to relax for a moment while playing this incredible new guitar we have coming into the store. After that, met with more of our reps and some new ones too. Ran into Tosin Abasi from Animals as Leaders and got to spend some time talking about his Morgan Amp set up (Yes we are a dealer for Morgan Amps!) and how he feels they are the best pedal platform amps out there. Then on my way to my last meeting I ran into Tal Wickenfeld the bass wizard and talked about her touring with her own band and working on that project. All in all another great year at NAMM and can't wait to share all the new and exciting products we have coming into the store over the next few weeks!! Thanks again to everyone who has showed us so much love and support over the last 2 years! We could not have done it without YOU!!! Cheers!


Hey Everyone! Posting late for day 2 of NAMM. We started off the day hanging with Brian Porter, at Porter Guitars!

I took Saturday off from the show and will be posting another update tomorrow after I get back from another day at NAMM! Cheers!!
