1. Robot Monster Guitars
517 E. Woodlawn Ave.
The reader's choice of instrument store says a lot about San Antonio — this is a guitar town, through and through. And Robot Monster is just the badass guitar store to cater to its needs. With guitars literally hanging from the ceiling, Robot Monster has everything from the prestigious Rickenbacker to the cheap beater for sale in its little alcove on East Woodlawn. In addition to all the guitars, basses, pedals, amps and accessories your rock 'n' roll heart could desire, Robot Monster carries furs, vintage jackets, records and memorabilia (good luck convincing them to sell that Doug Sahm tee hanging on the back wall).
