About Us

Welcome to Acoustic Music, your home for all things acoustic since 1973. We’re an independent brick and mortar shop rooted in the heart of Salt Lake City, dedicated to serving our community with friendly faces, expert advice, and the most beautiful acoustic instruments around.

Our shop may be small, but we house the finest selection of guitars and banjos in the region. Our ‘Good Wood’, all-American made guitar showroom features an incredible collection of MartinCollingsBedellBourgeoisIris, and Santa Cruz guitars. We also hand select heirloom American made banjos from PisgahOdeDeering, and Nechville for both the old time and bluegrass picker.

Along with our American made instruments, we have a large collection of imported, budget-friendly options, including classical guitars by Cordoba; steel string guitars by Eastman and Teton; ukuleles by KalaCordobaTeton, and Ohana; banjos and unique instruments by Gold Tone Inc; and Eastman mandolins. We carry a large selection of accessories, including straps, pickups, harmonicas, slides, picks, tuners, capos, and other necessary accoutrements.

When our doors first opened nearly five decades ago, our goal was to share our love of acoustic music with the local community. We believe in the power of music to bring people together, and we’ve made it our mission to foster a welcoming environment for musicians of all skill levels, from the eager beginner to the seasoned professional. Come on by to chat with our staff and play our beautiful instruments!

Although a majority of our high end inventory is online, we are a brick and mortar shop, not an online shop. Please give us a call or visit us instead!
