Our store has been serving the Crystal Lake community for over 40 years!  In June 2014 - it went under new ownership.  Now husband and wife Molly & Jason are the proud owners of Player's Bench Music.

  I love this place! I'm just getting back into practicing more consistently and have a 1970's era Yamaha 12-string guitar with a slotted neck. I've never restrung a 12-string guitar, and certainly not one with a slotted neck (verses the typical tuning pegs). I overcame my embarrassment, called the shop and asked if someone there could possibly restring this guitar for me. I was directed to Bobby's Benchmark Guitar Repair Service within Player's Bench.  Bobby could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Despite a heavy workload and schedule he had my 12-string restrung (as well as a 6-string) for me within two days!  When I came to pick up my guitars I met both of the owners who were working and they too could not have been nicer! (They even did some rapid research and confirmed that my Yamaha 12-string was "born" in 1973!) I am SO pleased that this wonderful Music Store still exists out here in Crystal Lake - I heartily recommend it!
