The next stop along my Indie Oak Parkers way was to Danche Guitar Co. at 906 Madison
where I met Danche Ivanovic. I had never been in the store before, something was telling me I should go in, now I am sure to go back. It took about two minutes before we were chatting it up about great musicians and about Europe where we both lived until 14 years ago.

and I have to say I had never met someone who builds guitars like this before.
You know there are some good stories behind a smile like that
and I even got to hear a couple of tunes
He will be playing over at Trattoria 225 on Sunday night if you are looking to hear some blues.
One can take a Build Your Very Own Guitar class, learn to play or purchase a hand crafted custom guitar, acoustic (flat top) or Jazz (archtop) right here in Oak Park.
