Loved around the world as a source for the best in stringed instruments, Lansing Michigan's Elderly Instruments is All Things Strings. Musicians from Elvis Costello, Vince Gill, REM, and REO to the local beginner seek out the Washington Street store either online or in person. There you encounter the best in musical instruments and a staff of terrific musicians who welcome you as if you had "walked into their living room." "It's the guitar center of the universe", and "anyone and their brother" can pick up an expensive instrument and play it. No glass cases, no one looming over our shoulder, and you don't need to ask - just pick it up and play. All Things Strings is wall to wall music, from folk to rock to bluegrass to country and western. The camera takes you behind the scenes with the quirky and knowledgeable staff, into workshops with guest musicians, and into the funky office and mind of Stan Werbin, co-founder and owner, and the source of the spirit and magic of Elderly.
