Podcast 332: Maury Rutch of Maury’s Music

Maury Rutch, founder of Maury’s Music, joins us this week for a candid talk about running an independent guitar store through a pandemic, his love for Martin guitars and his new short-form podcast (The Maury’s Music Podcast). Rutch’s story is a unique one: He left a factory job in the late ’90s to sell bone saddles and guitar parts for Martins on eBay. Eventually, he added Martin accessories to his store’s lineup and then, finally, the guitars themselves. Maury gives us a candid and honest peek at the ups-and-downs of running a guitar store, describes his perfect gigging Martin, plus a lot more.
