Guitar Vista in Abq is a cool local spot. Music Go Round is a good place for used gear. Just discovered the Village Guitarist in Cedar Crest which has some cool gear. Anytime i've been in that guitar center i've been underwhelmed. Hubbards music in LC as well as Akivas Fretworks in El Paso do good tech work. The Candyman in Santa Fe is also a great spot and they might be able to do some better tech work.
