What is Area 22?

Brodmann area 22 is the 22nd numbered Brodmann region of the human brain. It is on the right side of the brain and helps to discriminate pitch and sound intensity, both of which are necessary to perceive melody and prosody.


Kind Words

"Absolute best guitar shop in North Carolina. I would highly recommend anyone to buy from here. The customer service is superior to any other guitar shop I've been to. The owner Eddie will bend over backwards to help you. I live 7 hours away and will be making a special trip just to stop by, they are that good."


"Excellent selection and service. I visited the store then ordered a guitar online. Eddie is helpful, knowledgable, and takes excellent care of the guitars. The guitar that I ordered on Monday arrived on Wednesday in perfect condition!"


"Eddie is such a kind-hearted musical genius! We are so lucky to have such a gifted guitar teacher right here in Brevard. He taught me so much and I am forever grateful to him for sharing his passion with me. Additionally, his selection of instruments and amps will make any musician excited. He is always willing to give advice and spend time helping you find the perfect instrument. I bought my acoustic electric guitar from him nine years ago and through moves and time, the neck was warped on it making it sound pretty terrible. Edddie fixed it and got it back to me quickly and now it sounds brand new again. So blessed to have such an awesome guitar shop right here on King Street with such an awesome owner!" 


"I have been coming to this shop for over 7 years now and I seldom make any of my equipment decisions without (the owner) Eddie's guidance. Any guitar I play on stage is first inspected and set up at Area 22 Guitars. ANY PURCHASE I make inside the walls of Area 22 is made with the fullest confidence that if something goes wrong, Eddie will step up to bat for me and make getting a fix as smooth of a transition as possible. I bought a Fishman 220 PA (for my solo gigs) and realized 2 1/2 years later I was missing a knob to adjust the height of the legs and my PA was well past it's factory warranty. I explained my issue, he made some calls and I had my missing part in a week (no charge!!). That's what customer service is about. Building a relationship and having someone take the time to help you find the thing (whatever that "thing" may be) that suits your needs the most. But most importantly being able to make a purchase (big or small) with absolute confidence. I wouldn't go through another guitar shop for the world."
