  • Miscellaneous Acoustic and Electric Guitars (new-used-vintage) - Check out our list--you might be surprised at what we've got. We update this list daily, so please check back often. We are always interested in hearing what cool used instruments you might have to consign or trade.  E-mail or call Kim with what you've got.  We'd be happy to talk with you.
  • Accessories - LR Baggs, Fishman and K&K pickups; Franklin Strap, Pete Schmidt, and Long Hollow Leather guitar, dobro, banjo and mandolin straps; Boulder (Alpine) and Reunion Blues cases and gig bags. We also carry the Harptone Vintage Series cases.  Looking for a specific pick? Chances are we've got it. We've certainly got lots of picks, including Claytons, Hense, Wegens, and ProPik Fingertone fingerpicks, etc.
  • Cotten Music Caps - Cotten Music caps are low-profile, 6-panel, baseball caps featuring our full-color logo (new silver stitching) on the front and Nashville, TN (also stitched) on the back. They are fully adjustable, so they should fit most folks.   The regular low-profile caps are out of stock as of 1-10-2018 and on order. We also have larger-size caps (the dome portion is larger) in charcoal (also out of stock and on order). The larger caps have leather adjustment straps. All caps are $20 plus shipping.  To get yours, please email us, call us, or use PayPal (our address is for PayPal).
  • New! Cotten Music Stickers - Two sizes: a larger (semi-rectangular) one for your guitar cases, and a small (2" round) one for notebooks, or your ukulele or mandolin cases. Large sticker $3, small $2. Buy the pair and shipping is on us. Pics are on our Instagram page (cottenmusic).
  • Cotten Music Pick Holders - Premium leather key ring/pick holder (multiple shades of brown available, or black); one side has the Cotten Music (old-style, the one on our ball caps) logo, the other side has the Long Hollow Leather logo (the holders are made by our buddies at LHL in Franklin, TN). Email us for color choices! $6
  • Cotten Music's Teaching Staff - For beginning students, Stan Lawrence is a wonderful teacher on both guitar and mandolin; for the intermediate or advanced guitar or mandolin player, we (occasionally, as his schedule allows) offer lessons with Jack Pearson. Email or call the shop for information on setting up lessons with these two fine teachers.
