For over 35 years, Bob Popek has been repairing and restoring stringed instruments in the Lincoln area. And for the past 5 years, he has become easily accessible at cgsmusic at 1244 High Street, Lincoln's most exciting music "boutique". cgsmusic is family-owned and operated focusing on playability, performance and product. Bob leads the way with his expertise in all areas of string repair and enhances that with a wide variety of merchandise.
cgsmusic services range from restringing a violin to building your very own custom acoustic guitar to everything in between. Bob likes the challenge of repairing a professional musician's string bass and thoroughly enjoys fitting beginning students with their very first violin. cgsmusic is an authorized repair center for Martin, Gibson and Fender guitars. Estimates are always free and appointments are welcome.
cgsmusic sells guitars, violins, string basses, cellos, banjos, mandolins, pianos and much more. As of 2011, we are very excited about carrying Paul Reed Smith Guitars and Bob Cook dulcimers. We carry all of the accessories you will need to play great from sheet music to strings to digital tuners to cases to instructional DVD's. We are happy to consign, buy, or trade both new and used instruments.
cgsmusic has a flexible, hassle-free Rental Program and an affordable Maintenance Agreement option giving your child the opportunity to learn and grow with their instrument and you the peace of mind. Professional string bass rental is also available, see store for details.
Downstairs at cgsmusic is dedicated to musicians and their crafts. Several up and coming musical clubs are forming, including a hammer dulcimer club and a ukulele club, which will begin meeting in June. Jam sessions and other showcases offer a variety of local entertainment; they are open to the public and most are free of charge. Check out our Events Calendar for weekly and monthly musical events.
People always ask, "What does CGS stand for?" Well, in 2002, Bob originally created our website and devoted it to Classical Guitar Sheet Music and the classical guitarist. The information available includes tutorials, a dictionary, and several other learning tools. The online sheet music store features over 80 classical songs, arranged by Bob Popek specifically for classical guitar, available in both standard notation and tablature.
cgsmusic has recently grown to include band instrument repair. We now sell, rent, and repair trumpets, saxaphones, trombones, flutes, and many more.
cgsmusic is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sunday by appointment only. For more information stop in or call us at (402) 328-0677.
