E.M. Shorts Guitars began in Wichita, Kansas in 1974, and has been carrying Gibson products almost as long. Part of Wichita Band Instrument Co. Inc., which has been in business since 1953, we have always offered knowlegeable sales staff and experienced luthiers working together to ensure that you get the best guitar possible. Under the same ownership since 1962, we pride ourselves on our excellent reputaion and long list of satisfied customers worldwide. We have a real storefront... not another "box-store" ...and all our employees are musicians themselves. We all own Gibsons, in fact. We inspect every instrument that comes into our shop before we put it on the sales floor, and we offer a free professional set-up on every instrument we sell. This means the guitar you receive has not been sitting in a box on a shelf, and will be ready for you to play when you receive it. And should you have a Gibson in need of repair, we are an authorized Gibson/Epiphone service center.
We carry a full line of Gibson acoustic and electric instruments, and many other popular brands. We have a large selection of amplifiers, banjos, mandolins and ukuleles in stock at all times, as well as guitar effects and accessories. We even sell band instruments and violins. Every instrument we sell, new or used, includes a free two-year service warranty. This is in addition to any manufacturer's warranty. Our luthier is capable of everything from basic set-ups, crack repair and even restorations. Our shipping department will carefully pack your guitar. We ship instruments every day, and have an excellent record of safe deliveries.
We are excited to become a Gibson Five-Star dealer... the only one in Kansas... and to offer a wider selection of fine Montana instruments to you all.
