I had a blast picking with Danny Knicely at Drum & Strum Music last Friday for the Gallagher Guitar Company Showcase!
Don’t miss the Gallagher Guitar Company Showcase tomorrow at Drum & Strum Music!
This is happening Friday! Super excited to geek out about Gallagher Guitars with Danny Knicely, David Mathis and Tim Dingus at the Drum & Strum Music Center!
As I take stock of what I’m grateful for I’ve got to say that I’m pretty tickled with all that’s occurred. Two song nominations, a few Paramount+ , CMT Hot 20 Countdown placements with , met the fabulous Peter Keys of Lynyrd Skynyrd and starting collaborating for sync and landed two, Hashtag Blessed The Movie and . Had the pleasure of working with Linda Palmer on Civil Disobedience Series (flew out to LA for filming in early Spring). Wrote a ton of songs for Martina Webster and Dalea Faulkner’s movie (coming 2022), including Sir Earl Toon of Kool & the Gang where I wrote with Dalea (scriptwriter of film), collaborated with Nashville Music and Justine Blazer (artist and producer too) and the song made it on the ballot!! Patty Reese Music and I wrote a fun one that’s in - as did David Norris Ava Paige Music Nate Cornell produced a fabulous song co-written with Joel Christopher Payne and Donna De Sopo. The Sweet Spot Studio -Nicolas Laget and Samir Moussa produced incredible songs including Fallin’ For You which was just signed to Washington Street Pub -thanks and Queenie. Oh yes and my 12 year old student at Drum & Strum Music, Avery has released 4 songs written in our songwriting masterclass (all available where you listen to music), she landed a part in the movie and our song with was licensed for and the film producers StephanieMcBain produced a music video for her!! The Movie is out in 2022😍🎵 many thanks to Martina and hubbie Darren for believing in the song “Candy Canes & Christmas”

All songs are available on all platforms— I’m feeling so grateful as I write this and thank all of my co-writers and industry friends who make all of this possible.

Everyone knows it’s always better with more bass and we have a beautiful 1972 Precision fresh out of the repair shop that’s just hit the floor. Featuring the early 70s A neck this one has a slimmer profile and feel of a Jazz Bass and bottom end for days. Coming to the website very soon!

Listed just in time for our favorite day of the week, ! This is a gently used 2022 12 fret D Model handmade in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Built to vintage D18 specifications, this guitar features a Torrefied Adirondack Spruce Top, Hand-Carved Adirondack Spruce scalloped advanced X-bracing with complete hot hide glue assembly, Honduran Mahogany back and sides, Aged Granadillo peghead overlay, Ebony fingerboard & bridge, 1 3/4" bone nut & saddle, 2 5/16" bridge spacing, nickel vintage tuners, Iced-T Burst Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish, distress level 2, dual-action adjustable truss rod, Tortis binding, Ebony bridge pins, and Harptone hardshell case. This D Model is a wonderful tribute to the Golden Era instruments of yesteryear. It is featherweight and roars like a lion. No one but the guys at Pre-War can build a modern instrument with an old soul, and this is a perfect example. It has a tremendous voice with crystal clear highs and a thundering low end. Check it out today, it won’t last long!

Paying tribute to the greatest to ever pick up the instrument, this Tony Rice model from Santa Cruz Guitar is, like it’s namesake, the pinnacle of tone in an acoustic guitar. The pairing of an Adirondack top and Cocobolo back and sides give this guitar control over virtually every frequency on the spectrum, making playing a breeze and enjoyable for hours at a time. One strum of this guitar and you won’t want to put it down. Check it out today!

A classic style Jazzmaster with a '60s Surf Green nitrocellulose finish. This beautiful instrument is practically new, with only one previous owner. It has a small nick on one of the horns, but otherwise it is in pristine condition. The P90's have great tone that pair well with the music of the era.
Visit us online or in-store to get your hands on it today.

Thieves are abound in Warrenton again and our beloved custom Ovation dog bowl holder has been stolen. Theft is low enough, but a crime against the pups that walk Main Street is a whole new low. We’ll be reviewing security camera footage to see who’s responsible but anyone knowing would be greatly appreciated to come forward and let us know.

A student of Mr. Mike’s, Adrian is an impressive young man all around, and this was his first time on stage. He can be seen helping out in the shop most weekends and afternoons.

It’s a Sunday afternoon. If you’re not in the club we invite you to join with this exquisite example of their exemplary craftsmanship. This example features a beautifully figured set of Bubinga back & sides, bearclaw European Spruce top, 1 3/4” nut, Adirondack bracing with hot hide glue assembly, cowboy rope purfling, buttered toast finish, tortoise binding, through saddle, Cocobolo appointments, and 24.75” short scale which makes it play as dreamy as it looks. Link in bio!


The weekend is always off to a great start when it begins with a visit from bluegrass royalty. Mr. Jimmy Gaudreau, our friend & mandolin picker extraordinaire stopped in for a visit and to wish everyone a happy holiday weekend as he and his wife Gloria were passing through Warrenton. It’s another great day in the music business, and it never gets old seeing one of your lifelong musical hero’s waking through the door. Great seeing you, Jimmy!


Brendan is a guitarist and songwriter from Hampton, Virginia. He and his wife Faith made the trip up when they heard about our extensive selection of acoustic guitars. After putting several guitars he’d been considering through their paces, they each decided the OG model was the winner. We had a wonderful time meeting them both and trust this guitar is now in good hands where endless amounts of of great music will be made. Thanks for the visit, we hope to see you again soon!
