From The Music Emporium.
One of the country's oldest fretted instrument shops, The Music Emporium has its roots in the burgeoning Cambridge folk scene of the late 60's, when the vintage and fine acoustic instrument market had its first renaissance. For the over 40 years TME has seen thousands of instruments pass through its doors and has been privileged to both witness and influence the work of many of today's finest builders.
