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 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 today 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. 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.) 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 your search.

Linda Waterfall In Concert In February 

Thursday, February 11, at 8 p.m. 

Linda is a Seattle-based singer-songwriter whose talents cut a wide musical swathe.  Her amazing voice, impeccable finger-style guitar, her harmonies rooted in jazz, her training in theory, composition and classical piano – everything is brought to bear on the song and in the singing.  Linda is also a serious composer of art songs and choral music and an arranger of choral music, often performed acapella or with piano accompaniment. She has taught songwriting for 15 years through the Washington State Arts Commission. And the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop gets the benefits of her teaching skills regularly. Her new CD, “Hometown Girl,” was included by Seattle Times critic Paul de Barros in his list of “10 Favorite Albums of 2015.” If you hear hints of Carly Simon or Joni Mitchell here, listen more closely -- it’s really all Linda . . . 

“She is simply one of the finest fingerpicking guitar players alive on planet Earth today.” – Folk Alliance Newsletter

“Totally refreshing and invigorating. The music’s soaked in classical influences….draws together rock, pop, jazz and folk elements into a label-defying synthesis. Linda’s instrumental prowess elicits the use of superlatives….”—Tony May, Folk Root

"Her musicianship is astonishing, and her lyrical sense is at the cutting edge.  I can't see any serious fan of songwriting remaining ignorant of her work."-- Bob Franke, New England Folk Almanac

 Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door

Call for tickets: 415-789-0846 

 The concert in March with Pierre Bensusan has been cancelled.
