Our seats were under the overhang near home plate, so we just hung out in our seats during the delay. The concert was super!

The wife and I walked over on the off day Sunday. What an awesome shop! We stayed at the Zachary and had a magical weekend at PJ with everyone! Although waiting in line for 10 hours on Monday only to be evacuated for the rain delay to lose our 2nd row spots hurt ;)

Been to CME numerous times, including purchase of guitars and pedals. Incredible selection and helpful, knowledgeable staff. Also appreciate the multiple rooms to plug and play. A must visit if you are in Chicago.

I have never been to your shop but I have bought several parts from you and these two Fender CS beauties. If anyone is unfamiliar with CME, they are top-notch people.

To me that is just a whole lot of great guitars not being played which is a total shame...

My favorite guitar store I've ever been to. I make it to Chicago 2 or 3 times a year, and each time includes a visit to CME. It is overwhelming in there, and I always see things I'd love to take with me as my one carry-on item. I fell in love with an early 70's ES-335 on one trip, and have regretted not bringing that one home ever since.

I appreciate you making it a point to visit us! Next time you're in give me a heads up! Davida@chicagomusicexchange.com

I just had a very good experience buying a couple acoustic guitars from CME during the Taylor Buy One Add One Spring Break Sale. (still going on btw)

My on-line purchases was not discounting the Mini GS so I stopped and waited to the next morning. Geoff (on-line texting on the CME website) from "electrics" helped me and was unaware of the sale OR if CME honored that Taylor sale.

He came back and with some strokes of his keyboard was able (through Reverb) to make it happen. Very impressed and very grateful.

I received my two guitars in good shape and glad to report to the motley MLP crew
that all is well and CME is customer service oriented and efficient as hell.

Thanks again Geoff from 'electrics' who never skipped a beat while helping me.

I will write this up on the Reverb site as well. Most impressed.
