Mr. Robert Mahoney
Rockin Bobís Guitars started out in the 1981 as Used Sound, part of a Boston based chain of used TV and stereo shops. Over the years TVís were dropped and guitars and amps became a larger and larger portion of the business.
In 2001, Used Sound celebrated its 20th anniversary by renovating the store, adding significantly to its guitar inventory. In 2004, Rockin Bob renamed the store Rockin Bob's Guitars thereby making the focus even more on guitars and musicianís needs. Audio and stereo gear is still sold and serviced, though.
Our location (next to Johnny D's and across the street from the Somerville Theatre) makes us an excellent pit-stop for performers who need an extra set of guitar strings or want to check out a few cool guitars.
Rockin Bob's Guitars offers a carefully chosen selection of new, used, and vintage guitars, amps, effects, and guitar accessories. And our repair and maintenance services will help you stay in tune!
Used and vintage guitars, electric and acoustic, for sale at excellent prices. Our select and rapidly growing inventory encompasses everything from a kid's first starter guitar to vintage collector's items.
