After knowing the Linna family for just a few days as our new neighbours, I was instantly struck by their in-depth knowledge of musical instruments and was insanely impressed that they had decided to move from their home country of Finland to pursue their dreams – what else is life about!? Being a big fan of guitars myself, we naturally got in as soon as they pulled up to their drive, so I was absolutely thrilled to learn of Jeppson Guitars.
Making a note to go down as soon as the shop was open, I was blown away by the sheer amount of choice and customisation that the Linna family have to offer customers. Electric guitars, bass guitars, custom handwound pickups – you name it, they have it! Wanting to support my newfound neighbours, shop owners and friends, I went ahead and got an electric guitar at a very reasonable price. Who says quality breaks the bank, eh? Would highly recommend Jeppson Guitars to anyone in Louisiana, they’ll sort you out!

My family and I were in Louisiana for a holiday when we stumbled across Jeppson Guitars. Now, I don’t know the first thing about music, let alone custom handwound pickups (despite the lovely shop assistant trying his best to explain!), but our cousin is an aspiring Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, or whoever is popular at the moment. After explaining our lack of knowledge to Mr Shop Assistant, she gladly took us around the store to see whether they had anything for our cousin.
Turns out he needed a custom handwound pickup, and was delighted when we told him about Jeppson Guitars once we managed to call him back at the hotel. He told us to go back and ask a few questions, write down their response and call him back the following day. Jeppson Guitars showed a level of customer service that goes above and beyond what I expected, as they offered to phone our cousin themselves to explain everything to him. This was duly setup, and they even managed to build the custom handwound pickup in time so we could take it back to Serbia with us. Truly a first class shop!

I’m a huge fan of guitars and have been involved in the music industry for over 20 years. I’d heard through a friend of a friend that Jeppson Guitars was a new store that would be opening shortly, so I pencilled in a time after work to go and visit. Not expecting more than other guitar stores, I stepped foot inside to check it out. I was amazed.
The electric and bass guitars were in pristine condition, and they allowed me to strum away for 2 hours on their different makes and models. Even better, once I’d decided against making a purchase that particular day, the Jeppson Guitar’s shopkeeper wasn’t bitter about this, in fact he thanked me for the interesting discussions we’d held during the time I was there! I was so impressed that I promised to drive the cool 45-minute journey from my house the next time I needed anything for my band. They were delighted to see me, and we duly talked for many more hours about everything musical. A true delight to the neighbourhood!
