If you’re looking to buy your kid her first acoustic, a visit to McCabe’s Guitar Shop will have her well-rooted in West Coast folk-rock tradition from her first strum. Founded in 1958, McCabe’s has equipped nearly a half century of singer-songwriters, and acts from Fairport Convention to Lucinda Williams have performed in its famed back room. The inventory ranges from entry-level Chinese and Canadian instruments to masterworks by Sergei De Jonge and David Eichenbaum.
