What is The Guitar Toss?

The Guitar Toss is a benefit for the Animal Humane Society that occurs on the last Saturday of every July. Our donation totals grow every year, thanks to the generosity of the attendees and our vendors. For only a buck a chuck, participants try to toss an unusable guitar into a dumpster(no usable instruments are harmed). Those that dunk a guitar into the bin, get to choose a prize like a t-shirt, hat, or other swag donated by our various vendors. For each dollar donated, participants receive a numbered ticket for a prize drawing on the following Monday. Prizes for the drawing are guitars, amps, effect pedals, and other cool gear donated by our vendors!

Live Music!

We always feature cool live local music for the event.  Anyone from well known local acts to newbies having their first gig, it is always a great mix!


Every year an assortment of our finest vendors donate fantastic items to be given away in our prize drawing! Paul Reed Smith, Yamaha, Tech 21, Kala, Lanikai, Hagstrom, Rocktron, Godin, Seymour Duncan, Digitech, just to name a few! Local businesses like Down In the Valley and Doolittles Woodfire Grill also donate gift cards to be given away!


Sidewalk sale and more!

In addition, we  have a sidewalk sale with all kinds of different items,  and we also mark down many items in the store with special Guitar Toss prices! Many items are still discounted post-toss!
