The Podium

We are the high point of chaos here, getting up to speed on being The Podium. Taylor guitars has changed the direction for their on-line business and Guitar Rodeo is not included in the new plan. This gives us the freedom to become The Podium without sanction or hindrance. We are focusing on the small Premium maker, often overshadowed by the very large "high-end" guitar makers and the marketing dollars that drive those maker's sales. The Podium of the halcyon past set the pace for the leading edge of the acoustic guitar world, has been copied and chased, and we are reconnecting with our roots. Please stay in touch with us as we bring on more of the small bench makers and provide our customers with the right stuff and best consulting on gear for the discriminating players and professional musicians alike. Expect better stuff and the same old premium customer service you are accustomed to getting from Jim, Cecelia and Dave.

    Any chance you still have any of the 00-Mahogany slot head custom Martins, Gloss finish, etc. Saw them on the Podium site but was not able to pull the trigger at the time, but I can now if there is one available.

  • David, We can do this for you. We changed locations three years ago, so be careful to use 4151 Minnehaha Ave Minneapolis MN 55406 as the shipping address if you decide to move forward. I also suggest using for email regarding this work, as that email is checked daily and this site not as often. Thank you for your interest.

    Good day,
    I have in the past bought two Collings from you so I should be in your computer data?
    I have just come into possession of 2001 Goodall and would like to have a permanent pick up fitted. I am conscience of the fact that this needs to be expertly selected and installed in order not to foul up the guitars tone.
    If I FedEx up the guitar to you would you be able to do the necessary and FedEx it back to me? I am currently located in The Turks and Caicos Islands.
