 Welcome to the online home of Schoenberg Guitars!

We are two overlapping enterprises here at 106 Main Street in Tiburon, California. First, we are our own tradition-based Schoenberg Guitars, representing the very best of the hand-builder's art in sound-quality, playability & projection. And, second, we are the friendly brick-and-mortar store where these and other great instruments are bought, sold, traded & repaired. Our unique inventory includes many of the finest vintage Martins & Gibsons available anywhere--even some one-of-a-kind museum pieces-- as well as old & new guitars, mandolins, ukuleles & banjos, all from brand-name-makers and hand-builders. And we carry the best-sounding instruments we can! We cater to the experienced musicians looking for 'lifetime' instruments and, also, to the absolute beginner looking for an inexpensive yet playable entry-level one. In fact, we have outstanding instruments at all price levels, and these include a custom set-up! (We have a reputation for our great set-ups, done while you wait.) And we're not just guitars. We have a huge selection of ukuleles, from inexpensive to hand-made. And mandolins at all price-points. We also host in-shop concerts by world-class musicians & offer lessons from a first-rate instructor. And here, our online home, is the place to find all of our wares & information about our activities.  

Please take a tour of our website and contact us with any questions. We update our inventory almost daily.  (Here are some hints to help you with any of your searches.) 

For photos of instruments, go to the individual page of that instrument. Then click on the first photo -- often a headstock photo -- others are available, then, by clicking on the arrows.

Also, if you check in the menu list (up on the left) under "Departments" you'll find our Archive Gallery, a listing of our sold instruments with photos & info. It's a collection of fascinating guitars and a useful history of the acoustic guitar, in some ways.

Questions about repairs?. . . see the information below the 'Lessons' segment on this page.

Finally, we always have great 'starter' instruments for beginners in stock -- ukuleles start at $49 & guitars at $199, all with professional set-up included at no extra charge. You'll be surprised by the quality you get for so little money! 

Thanks for dropping by!!

Repairs & Other Work on Guitars

Repairs

We do all kinds of repairs on guitars, mandolins, banjos & ukuleles, from simple set-ups to complete restorations. We do neck re-sets on a regular basis, fret-work, bridge re-glues, etc. We work on modern guitars from all makers, from the most basic to the most expensive, and also on pre-war Martins, Gibsons, Nationals, Regals, Kays, the guitars of the Larson brothers, and others.

We are a Martin-Authorized Warranty Repair Center and handle every kind of warranty repair on customer-owned Martins.

We have a reputation for doing great set-ups on acoustic guitars. Set-ups can usually be done while you wait. More involved repairs, like neck-resets, can take 6 to 8 weeks because of our work load.

Revoicing & Neck Reshaping

Because instruments respond to subtle adjustments, over the years we’ve developed techniques for re-voicing guitars. We are now accepting work on customer's instruments. Let us bring your instrument’s voice more in line with your preferences.
 
We also reshape necks, knowing how important neck shape is to a guitar’s playability.
 
Call for prices and to discuss the improvements you’d like to see in your guitar.
