  • We like to give back to bluegrass and country music when we can. We sponsor Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers, shown here at their Grand Ole Opry debut in July 2013, and help the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys now and then. We raffled off a Martin D-18 guitar in November 2014 at the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival and raised $2,000 for Guitars for Vets—and then surprised them on-stage with a Martin guitar donation.

Just wanted to say that the service I received was second to none. I bought a used Yates RS banjo and am thrilled with it. It arrived packed very well and condition exactly as described. When Tom called me for set up questions I could tell he really knew and loved banjos. He was very nice and even called me about a week after I received it just to see how I liked it. Highly recommend them.


I just called Tom Andersen to thank him for the Taylor 518e. He described the instrument before purchase, and then did a fantastic setup on it. It arrived in California in beautiful shape, ready to play. This is the second guitar I bought at your store, based on your reputation and good words. I can't tell you how impressed I am with your candor, professionalism, and trustworthy advice. The instruments were even better than you described.

Again many thanks, and keep up the great work.


I want to thank Janet Davis Acoustic Music and one of your sales representatives, Tom, for assisting me in purchasing and shipping the Tacoma JF-21 Jumbo guitar on Tuesday. I received the guitar on Wednesday, incredibly, and it is one beautiful instrument, exactly as described by Tom. I also want to specially thank him for the fantastic setup of the guitar, which even included brand new strings - what a great surprise!

The packing was also excellent, and I am one very, VERY happy and satisfied customer of Janet Davis Acoustic Music. I have bookmarked your website, and will always look there first when considering future instrument purchases (I already have my eye on one...).

Many thanks again!


I have purchased two Wildwood banjos from Janet Davis, a Troubadour, and very recently a Paragon. They are beautiful in appearance, and Tom Anderson does a fantastic job setting them up and optimizing their beautiful tone. He is a genius, not to mention a very friendly and helpful gentleman.
