Known for making noise on most fretted instruments, but better known for playing guitar and singing in The Chapmans. John is an owner and he is the fearless sales team leader.

The enigmatic, youngest Chapman brother. You can find him slapping an upright bass in the family band or locked away in the editing cave pushing sweet juicy content to our Youtube channel. In either case he completes all tasks in style with a belly full of Amigos.

The youngest boy of 10 children, he is known for his fancy hands but his solo music is a Shoppe favorite. Brian keeps us from burning the building down and keeping back ends in order. He is a jack of ALL trades in the workplace, he has MANY voices but there is only ONE Springfield restaurant claims as his favorite and that is Golden Korean.

The Mullet boy wonder of The Acoustic Shoppe staff, Trent is often locked away in the video editing cave but when we allow his freedom he can sell a customer a guitar or two.

A man of few words, here are a few words. Hudson can repair guitars and repair our hearts with his solo music, Hudson started working at The Acoustic Shoppe in October 2019. He can’t decide who his favorite Chapman is because they are all so great, but he can decide that Druff’s is his favorite Springfield restaurant. He eats fingerstyle and plays fingerstyle and gives guitar and ukulele lessons with our lesson department.
