"Don Wilson Music has a variety of musical instruments that range from beginner level to proficient. The staff are fellow musicians and music lovers and assist customers in an informative, yet hassle-free manner. The prices on the same brands and styles of instruments, accessories, and repairs, are more affordable than the other competitor stores on Southland Drive or in Lexington. Wilson’s also gives lifetime warranties on most all equipment and they guarantee their work on repairs. Service was prompt, yet friendly, unlike the annoyed boyband clerk types strumming electric guitars at supersonic decimals up the street. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this establishment for guitar repairs and accessories. It is a family owned and operated business with common curtesy and business values. Great place and people there and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone! Don Wilson’s is the Best Beat on the Block!"

"I had a fantastic experience buying with Don Wilson Music Company. I was looking to buy my first ukulele and Dan helped me easily figure out what I needed by sending me pictures of my options in the shop through Facebook chat. It’s a genius way to shop for an instrument while still practicing social distancing! He made the process so easy and simple, which I greatly appreciate as I tend to overthink things. I can’t thank you guys enough!!"

"Took my granddaughter (who plays 8th grade trombone) to look at accessories as I wanted to celebrate her 4th year of commitment to this instrument. We met their technician, Dan, who also teaches trombone (@ a school in Frankfort?). He demonstrated some accessories, was frank about what was good value and what wasn't. Great selection of instruments and accessories, solid advice and a staff who listens to the consumer. Dan made my granddaughter feel like a professional musician. Great job!"
