Fine-Tuned: Replay Guitar Exchange Sale
In the two years Tampa's Replay Guitar Exchange has been open, it has had so many cool events, like guitar demos and workshops with famous musicians. The independent guitar shop that offers new, used and vintage instruments has made some loyal customers, too, so it's celebrating its second anniversary with a sale Saturday. Guitars, basses, acoustics, amps and accessories will be up to 60 percent off, while everything in the store is discounted by at least 10 percent. There is a one-per-customer limit on featured items. Door prizes include gift cards, an Ibanez guitar, a Fender strat, Orange mini amps and more. (Register day-of, winners chosen Monday.) Get there early as they expect a crowd, and will not be taking trades that day. Noon-6 p.m. 3944 Britton Plaza. (813) 254-8880.
