I've been going to Gordon's for a couple years now, and I have nothing but great things to say about them. They have been open for twenty-five years now, and they are certainly the home for traditional music in Tallahassee.
I've purchased instruments, strings, stands, you name it from Gordon. They certainly beat the hell out of Guitar Center, and they don't mind if you stay for hours at a time just playing the banjos. They offer lessons in any traditional instrument you can think of, including banjo, guitar, mandolin, and fiddle.
They don't always have the parts or instrument you're looking for, but they can always order it in. I'd much rather support these guys than go to a giant chain.
Gordon's String Music is located at 1903 North Monroe Street in Tallahassee, Florida 32303, south of I-10 and north of the capital building
