South Beach Music Exchange: A 12-Photo Tour of Miami's Best Night Owl Guitar Store

The South Beach Music Exchange won Miami New Times' award for Best Musical Instrument Store in 2010. And if you're drunk and wanna buy a guitar at 2 a.m. on a Tuesday, it's still the city's top all-hours music store.



Marty, who runs the place, is a night owl. And whether the Deaf Poets need to borrow a bass or an out-of-town band needs guitar strings minutes before a show, he's the man they go to.



Wondering what the shop looks like? Just See the cut for a 12-photo tour.
