"2nd Gear is a go to shop for any musician in Nashville. The shop owner, Tom Bukovac, is probably one of the best guitar players on planet earth, and an incredibly good dude. He is a top session guitar player in town. In his spare time, he is a jedi-master of buying, selling, and trading gear. His shop isn't very big, but he always has some bad ass shit hanging on the walls. You can go in for a guitar, or just to hang with Tom, he could probably care less. He's always up to share a story or two about his time here in Nashville or out on the road."
