"Although I've been a player for 30+ years, buying a Blueridge Br-160A was a major purchase for me. I went with Maury's because of the superior amount of objective information they provide about their products, the fact that they only sell lines they believe in, and I knew exactly what I was getting before it was shipped.
Oh yeah, the guitar: its a beauty, sounds like a dream and plays like butter- I never imagined I could own an instrument of this quality at this price.
These guys care about what they send out and exemplify integrity in the marketplace. Keep it up and I'll be back when I'm ready for a new baby."

"I received my new Martin CEO-7 two weeks ago. The guitar was perfectly set-up and despite the trip across the country during the winter, it was just about in tune. I chose to order from Maury's because I trusted that the instrument would be handled with care, and set-up correctly. I also received great pricing and exceptional point-to-point customer service.
Thank you Angelo and Maury for your dedication to a quality buying experience. I appreciate the quick replies to my emails and the time that you spent making sure my new guitar was set-up perfectly. I am looking forward to doing business with you again and wish you the best in the New Year. "

"Maury's Music is by far the BEST music store that I've ever shopped. They have an awesome, wide selection of items, especially the hard to find items like Martin Saddles, available in a wide variety of materials. They also have bridge pins in materials that are difficult to find. Maury's prices are fantastic and their customer service is unmatched."

"I just wanted to take the time out to thank Angelo@ Maury's Music for helping me replace a part for my Martin Guitar. The staff at Maury's Music go out of their way to please the customer. All I can say is if you are thinking about buying guitar ,look no further. You have not only found the best price for that new Guitar but also customer service. Thanks again. Randall"

"Maury's customer service is outstanding! Placed the order on the Blueridge 240-A.
I asked Angelo when I could expect to receive it. He said he would call the supplier and let me know.
He got back with me (I think that day), and let me know it would be on back order for over a month.
Angelo let me know I could cancel the order if I did not want to wait that long.
After all their help with the set up, and all the good reviews I wanted to do business with them. I'm glad I did, and look forward to doing business with them again in the future."

"I had never heard of Maury's when I started looking to buy a Martin guitar. I found them by chance when reading reviews online about the guitar I was looking for. Right away I was impressed with the customization options offered, and the positive reviews about them. I cancelled my order with Sweetwater and went with Maury's. They shipped out my guitar the same day, with all of my customization done. I got the guitar and it was set up perfectly, and my upgrades were done professionally. No hassle, no long waits. Just great business done in a professional and timely matter. If you want a Martin, order from Maury's Music-you'll be glad you did. I will definitely be doing business with them again. Thanks Maury!"

"Had been talking with another dealer about a Blueridge BR-73 who had a great price but I was not comfortable with them.. Very poor communications and just seemed very elusive to me.. I decided to talk with Maury's because I had heard many good comments about him.. It was the best thing that I could do. He met the competerors price and was always there to immediately answer my e-mail questions even though he was on the road. I did call the store prior to ordering and Angelo immediately answered and was great and actually knew what he was talking about...I placed the order and it was here on the third day.. They actually had pictures of the exact guitar that I would be getting and they really gave me the old feeling that the customer was still important... Would I deal with them again???, absolutely, no question about it...They may be a small business but they are certainly big in their customer care.... Hope they continue that way.....Thanks Maury and Angelo"

I ordered a Martin OMJM, DSS John Sebastian and D-28 Authentic 1941. All the guitars that I chose to pick were just fantastic.. they sounded like it's aged already but it's new guitars! I can tell Maury's music give you not only the best price andservice also quality guitars! I am happy to be back again and get a new toy from here. Maury's Music deserves 5 stars! "

"I couldn't find the guitar I wanted at any of the music shops near my home. A good friend of mine told me about a trustworthy online dealer called Maurysmusic. I checked out the website and found the guitar I wanted. To my surprise, Maurysmusic even had options for upgrades (saddles, bridge pins, etc.) and an option for a setup! I have never purchased an expensive guitar online before, so I had many concerns and questions for the Maurymusic staff. They were all very helpful and patient with me. My order shipped to my house quickly and safely, once they were able to set the guitar up. The guitar turned out even nicer than I expected. The staff was able to set up my guitar perfectly, according to my requests. I am extremely thankful for their great service, and will be buying from them again. Maurysmusic is a trustworthy merchant for aspiring musicians."

"I contacted Maury's to purchase a new Martin due to Maury's exceptional reviews from past customers in the guitar world. I discussed my purchase and needs with Angelo who was extremely helpful and more than generous with his time. Although I was looking at several different models Angelo helped me make the purchase that was right for me. He forwarded me pictures of different models and overall gave me confidence in selecting and purchasing a D-18 sight unseen. Maury's gave me a great price and the guitar arrived halfway across the country two days later in great condition and sounds beautiful. I highly recommend Maury's."

"I have spent the past 3 years building my "Guitar Fund" and have spent countless hours playing a wide variety of different guitars; Gibsons, Taylors, Martins, Breedloves, Seagulls, LAGs...... the long list of quality guitars. I was looking for a guitar under $2,800.00. I played dozens of guitars and finally determined that the OM 21 was the Perfect Guitar for me..... when the "Guitar Fund" was flush, I seriously began pricing the best deal. I didin't find it in my home state of Washington, nor in Oregon, Idaho, California, Texas, New Mexico, Flordia or Wisconsin and I checked them out very thoroughly!!!! But when I checked with Angelo at Maury's Music.... he was professional in his answers to my questions and gave me the best deal that could be found! Maybe Angelo wouldn't have been able to do this with every guitar, maybe it was the OM 21, BUT....maybe it was just Maury's way of doing business? I don't know, but I'll back for more!"

"Angelo was very informative and helpful in reviewing my choices of buying either a Martin D-16GT, D-15m or DCPA4. All were in stock and ready to ship. Since I play many different styles and sounds, my buying choice was the D-16GT. Maury was quick to reply with the best lowest price and the best safe shipping among all the other dealers, big and small, that I contacted. I love playing the D-16GT every day and I thank Maury's Music for making me an owner of a Martin guitar."

"I mostly dealt with Angelo at Maury's Music. He was very helpful and knowledgable. He answered any and all questions thoroughly and, more importantly, honestly. The first guitar I ordered was backordered. When they finally got one in, Angelo called me and told me that there was an issue with it and they couldn't in good conscience send it to me. We discussed my options and, with Angelo's input, I decided to order a different guitar. I saw pics of the actual guitar on Maury's website before I ordered it. I had Maury install a pickup and when the guitar arrived, I had a small issue with the pickup. I contacted Maury and he addressed the problem immediately and offered me a couple of options as a solution. That's great customer service- before and after the sale!
Before I ordered, I read a lot of rave reviews regarding Maury's Music and Maury himself on some of the guitar forums as well as this site. I see why now. "

"Ok,I ordered this guitar, knowing that it was not in stock and would have to be ordered by Maury's. this is my first purchase through this shop. I didn't give an exact date in my order and immediately received an email from Maury needing an exact length of time I was willing to wait, worse case. I provided a 45 day max wait time. I ordered this in the evening, Arizona time, it was near 9:00 pm Eastern time. So, communication was an A+++, I had a couple of other email questions during the waiting period and they were promptly answered.
I got a little nervous as my due date was about to arrive and it had not shipped, and I found out I was being transferred in my Job and was concerned the guitar would not make it in time. I sent an email and received a reply from Heather who began to follow up. This was day 43 I believe. Heather and Maury sped into action evan though Martin was complaining of inventory delays. Bottum line is that Maury jumped in his vehicle and picked up my guitar on day 44 and Heather shipped it the same day. It arrived 6 days later and I couldn't be happier. That's customer service!
So my experience was very positive. In fact I had put an interest in to a big box store and was notified that they received 2 of the same guitars in. This notification arrived 2 days after, I received my guitar. Oh and the price was a lot better from Maury's.
Thanks Maury and Heather! You have earned my appreciation and future business."

“I'm very sorry to disappoint you - we certainly aim to inform our customers more quickly than that ... But you'll see you didn't have to wait at all for this stock status. Our FAQ answers the question:
"Do you have (name of guitar) in stock?"
Please type the name of that guitar into the search bar on our website, located on the left hand side of every page. If it is in stock, it will be clearly labeled "IN STOCK, READY TO SHIP" and we will have actual pictures listed.
All customers using the contact us form are strongly urged to view our FAQ first.
Our J-40 was not listed as "in stock" and showing actual pictures. It was listed as "contact us". I am sorry it took us a couple extra days to reply, but if you were unclear about this stock/backorder status, I hope you can forgive us as our FAQ had that answer, and there was no need to wait any amount of time for a live reply. We do look forward to filling this order for you and no hard feelings.”

"Good prices, BUT if they don'thave it in stock you could wait a VERY long time. Despite what Maurys website says, he doesn't just go to the Martin factory and get your guitar...he is over 3 hours from the factory.
“Rich, I'm sorry to see you're giving us 1 star here. I'm very saddened to see this relationship go sour so fast. You had nothing but great things to say about us in past emails and in-person. During your visit to our shop, Heather and I enjoyed your company and you seemed excited to play our Martins and have your little Jimmy Buffet LXM evaluated. The long wait time you're mentioning here was out of our hands, and I can find & quote several emails between you and I (and Heather) that reveal a good healthy exchange between the 3 of us, always keeping you in the loop. When you got tired of waiting for the 00-18V, we offered to WAIVE our cancelation fee so long as you order and keep a similar in-stock Martin instead. You agreed, and chose our in-stock 0-28VS which we shipped promptly. Only after your tried to return the 0-28VS and we held you responsible for the original cancelation fee (our policy that you agreed to) did everything go south. Now that we won't eat that cancelation fee, you're here with a 1/5 stars and complaining of poor customer service. I take that personally and it is not fair to ALL our other customers. Good customer service means taking good care of every single one. Had we secretly allowed you to be above our policies you might not have written this bad review but that would be unfair to all our other great customers who understand, agree to and abide by our policies. Also, Martin's distribution center is located at 1100 Conroy place, Easton, PA. You'll remember our store is at 114 E Phillips St, Coaldale, PA. You can ask Martin to verify that I do go there twice a week, and you can use Google Maps (or similar) to see that my travel time is just over an hour, and not nearly 3.”

"WOW. Just WOW. After losing part of my right hand and a couple fingers in a shooting accident, I was forced to sell most of my old guitars to survive without working for a few months. I was forced to sell my 1970 D-28 and my 94 Guild D-55. I resigned myself to never being able to play again after over 50 years of picking.
As I healed, I started plucking around on an old beater I kept around and began to see some hope. I had done business with Maury's in the past and always felt satisfied that I got wonderful service and great prices. I wrote to Maury asking about several different models of Martins and he helped me to decide on the D-17 M. I ordered it late on a Thursday night and it showed up at my door Monday afternoon on President's Day.
Wow, Just WOW! The setup was perfect, it was beautiful, and even pretty well in tune. I hit a chord and was floored by the sound, clarity, and power. I think I_ have found the replacement for my old D-28 that should last me well for the second phase of my life, as my D-28 did for 43 years.

I ordered the guitar Monday afternoon and it was delivered to my door on Wednesday afternoon, and that was with a custom set up by Maury's. I am very pleased."

"Just purchased a new Martin HD28. I researched the Internet thoroughly and found the best price at Maury's Music. I paid 41 percent off of the MSRP. The next best price was 23 percent off. Maury's Music was the only merchant who offered dealer installed options, such as adding a pickup, strap button, sun bursts and upgrades such as saddle, bridge and setup options.
I ordered a strap button. According to the UPS tracking advice online the guitar was shipped just three hours after I placed the order. Remarkable! Prior to my purchase I asked. Few questions by email and they were answered with a few hours.
I am very impressed by Maury's Music and highly recommend them if anyone is interested in a Martin guitar."

"My item is back ordered, but Maury personally contacted me to find out if I wanted to wait, which I did.
Everything Maury's does is great except one - and it's probably not his fault. I would like to be able to send it to my work address but he can't. The last guitar I got UPS finally showed up at around 8 PM and just dumped it on the porch. I don't like the idea of my $4,000 guitar just being left on the porch where anybody can get it.
But I will always do business with Maury. I just take the day off from work so I can be here when it arrives."

"Maury's Music was a great place to shop and buy. Very fast service and I received the guitar on schedule. I ordered the Blueridge BR-160A and it is a very nice guitar.
About the Guitar:
I've owned nothing but Martin guitar's for 36 years and so my expectations were very high after reading all the very positive comments on the website about Blueridge guitars and how they can be compared to the Martin sound. I bought this guitar because my Martin needs a neck reset and has become a little difficult to play. However, my Martin trained (and biased) ears can certainly tell that this isn't a Martin. Compared to my D-28, the sound is different, not as full and rich or balanced. There is just something about the sound of a Martin that can't be beat. Hopefully with time the sound will improve.
I must say that at first I was slightly disheartened with the Blueridge because there is quite a bit of string buzz up and down the fretboard. I truly didn't expect this.
The next day I restrung the guitar with a new set of Martin Bluegrass Medium gauge Phospher Bronze strings and 95% of the Fret/String Buzz was cured. Now I'm only getting a slight buzz out of the G string. The sound of the guitar is also much improved and the action is still pretty good (3/32) at the 12th fret. I must say that I'm now very happy with my purchase."
“Thanks for your honest review Mudman. I appreciate your points but want to say that I indeed did tune this to pitch and test it. I found the action to be what I call medium-low with proper neck relief. I do hope you can appreciate my position; had I raised the action, I had just as much a chance for you to write this review citing "uncomfortable and high". I'm sorry we didn't speak about your wishes beforehand and perhaps we can chalk this up to an honest miscommunication.
May I offer you a $60 gift card to offset a setup by your local tech?
Best of luck & thanks for your business.”

"The person I spoke was great, the order went out promptly and the price was good. Thanks for that.
This Martin Baritone has finish flaws on the sound board and the battery holder was not attached to the inside of the body leaving it to flop around. Also, the set up is frankly not even close with a sting height at the 15th fret of 1/4". Martin should do a much better job of QC if they expect to gain some customer loyalty.
I'm not necessarily unhappy with Maury's as I think these are Martin QC problems.
I don't have time for a return as I need this instrument for a film I'm scoring and it does sound really good. This is why, despite the issues mentioned, I'm keeping it. After I have it worked on it should turn out to be a terrific instrument."
“Dear Composer, I've sent emails to you through reseller ratings, MaurysMusic.com, my personal Gmail account and your website email. I'll have to reply here as we've received no response. I'm very sorry about the battery holder coming loose in shipment... this can be a problem in the summer with cross-country shipping. I will be sending you a replacement battery pouch. I have to respectfully disagree with you on the other points as I found no finish flaws during my inspection, and the guitar setup was within Martin's tolerances. Please understand, a baritone does need higher action than a standard scale 6-string. We delivered this with "factory setup (no adjustments)" as you asked.
I also remember working closely with you and Heather on this order, and we had this boxed and ready to ship less than 3 minutes after your website order came through- so you would receive it on time. I'm disappointed to have earned 2 stars in this situation. I hope we can do better for you in the future. Please let me know your thoughts, as your satisfaction is important to us.

I recently bought a new Martin from Maury and had a wonderful experience. Maury and Heather are two of the nicest people you'd want to meet, and Maury has one objective - your satisfaction.
I drove 2 1/2 hours out to Maury's shop, and was greeted with a big smile and warm welcome. The guitar I was interested in was out and ready for me to test. Maury seemed willing to spend as much time as it took to make sure I was getting the right guitar, and that it ultimately be set up the way I wanted it. I had it shipped and when it arrived it was set up just exactly right.
You could never go wrong with Maury, and when you add in the amazingly low prices it all adds up to a wonderful buying experience. Thanks so much Maury!"

This means a lot if your trusting someone with a big purchase.
I can't say enough about how pleased i am with maury's and I'm already thinking about what guitar to get next. You can trust this company and you will be very happy that you did business with them. Great people !!!

“Thank you SO much Brian - we're so glad you're happy. It was great to meet you. One correction though... I don't play the guitars *before* I buy them. I pick them up at Martin, bring them back to the shop and then play & test them. Any guitar that needs fixing or replacement goes right back to Martin. Thanks again & I hope you don't mind my correction.

I didn't do much price shopping because I was told that Maury had the best prices. Even with the upgrades the price was still several hundred dollars less than Guitar Center's shelf price."

"My buying experience with Maury could not have gone better. I first contact Maury asking for help selecting between models; Martin HD-28 vs HD-28MP. He correctly steered me in the direction of the MP because of the Maddy Rosewood sound quality and the improved neck. Once I choose the model and decided to have bone pins installed he gave me the best price available anywhere (and I spent a day searching). One day following my order he shipped the guitar and it arrived in a few day in perfect condition (w/no additional shipping chg.)WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR? I would give them 10 stars if I could. Note of advise... if you order a similar instrument, have Maury set up the action for you. I didn't, but wish I had... factory settings are decent, but much room for improvement. "
