About

They call me "The Sheriff."

Greetings, I'm Sarah. I'm a central PA based guitarist, marketing professional, photographer, cardio junkie, and dog mom. 

Guitarist

I've been playing close to 30 years and am completely and totally obsessed with all things guitar; playing, buying, selling, trading, etc..

I am a student of the Marty Stuart way of living. On Friday/Saturday night, you can find me launching off of a drum riser playing country music. On Sunday mornings, I humble myself at church with massive reverb trails and a grateful heart.

I am so honored to be endorsed by both PRS and Breedlove and have partnered with several other amazing brands as I chase tone and refine my sound.

Marketing professional

By day, I'm the director of online marketing at a private liberal arts institution. A blend of left and right brain, I can create a clean, well balanced design AND the analytics reports to show tangible ROI on those designs. 

I'm endlessly curious and I'm rarely still.

    Hang Time with Sarah Sheriff

    MojoZine

    "Here at Mojotone, as many of you know, we aim to celebrate hard-working techs, DIYers, and musicians as best we can. Today we're spending some time with Sarah Sheriff, a very hard-working guitarist who has been supporting Mojotone on social media and at gigs by rocking some serious speaker-cabinetry." - Logan Tabor

    I recently chatted with the folks at Mojotone about all things music; from what inspired me to pick up a guitar, my journey through central Pennsylvania and beyond, what it's like to be a woman in this business and even my upcoming goals. 

    It was an honor to hang with a company that not only makes killer gear but has top shelf staff and customer service. I HIGHLY recommend checking these guys out for anything from custom cabs, amps, speakers, pickups, guitar/pedal parts, and some awesome accessories.
