An old hangout that I thought was gone!! – I used to hang out at the Fifth String in the early '80.s I took flatpicking from John Green. I think his bluegrass sensibilities were put off by the jumbo Guild I had. So, I bought a 73 D-45. I remember the look on his face when he saw the D-45. I'm sure he was thinking, " Now there's an example of way too much guitar for that guy!!" Someone told me that the Fifth String burned and was no longer in business. Boy am I glad you're still there!!!
Unplugged and proud. – The Scene
An acoustic player's paradise. All kinds of stringed instruments at all kinds of prices hang from the walls. Of course there are guitars (lap, bass, six- and twelve-string, big and little), but you'll also find a good selection of mandolins, banjos, even zithers. The employees are all really laid back and don't mind if you borrow a pick and spend an hour or so handling the merchandise.
Thursday night is jam night, so, if you think you can hold your own, show up and give it a whirl.
The Fifth String offers lessons from some of Sacramento's most accomplished musicians in almost any style you want to learn.
Gotta have It
The Martin six-string with the string bender. It made us giddy.
