A message from Bill Thibodeau of Rick's Musical Instruments.

Hello Bluegrassers,
Unfortunately, due to COVID19, Rick's Musical Instruments will not be vending any bluegrass festivals this summer. We are as sad as you are regarding the effect COVID is having on the Bluegrass community.
We want you to know that even though the festivals are cancelled, Rick’s Music was prepared to vend
and purchased the inventory to do so... and our loss is your gain!

This inventory includes some new and amazing pieces including a VERY cool Dojo Deluxe by Gold Tone and the new VL305 Electro-Acoustic Violins by Eastman. If you haven’t seen these yet, we highly recommend you check them out! We also currently have in stock a good selection of Gold Tone Banjos, os, commend you check them out! We also currently have in stock a good selection of Gold Tone Banjos, os,
Eastman and Kentucky Mandolins, Eastman Guitars, and Gold Tone Micro Basses.

For competitive prices and “A” stock Bluegrass instruments, please consider shopping our store. We can ship any and all instruments listed here. All instruments come with a one-year free maintenance warranty. All repair work is done on-site by your friend Billy Thibodeau!y. All repair work is done on-site by your friend Billy Thibodeau!
