  • I would recommend this business

This store is amazing! They have everything from used gear to premium acoustics to instructional books to accessories and more. The staff is highly knowledgeable about their products and it is very interesting and entertaining listening to all the facts they know. I recently bought a Furch (Stonebridge) guitar here and it was a great experience. Friendly staff, easy transaction, and a memory I won't forget! Recommended to any music lovers; they give lessons too. Check them out!

I took my sister from out of town there today with her children. They wanted to buy a ukulele. They got a very nice soprano ukulele. Mr Steilberg was great and let the kids try out several other instruments. The kids learned a lot and enjoyed themselves! I highly recommend this shop.

Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974 by Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug. We here at Steilberg String Instruments have been huge fans of Taylor guitars since we first discovered them back in the late 1970's when Jim Steilberg first met Kurt Listug on the road with Taylor guitars for sale in the back of the company Volvo. Over the years, Taylor's high quality guitars have become renowned for blending modern, innovative manufacturing techniques with a master craftsman's attention to detail. Taylor's are widely considered among the best sounding and easiest to play guitars in the world - so much so that they are now the largest builder of American made acoustic guitars.
