Welcome to the new online home of Schoenberg Guitars.
We are two different enterprises based at 106 Main Street in Tiburon, California. First, we are our own line of top quality, tradition-based hand-built Schoenberg guitars. And, second, we are the store in which they, along with the instruments of other top builders -- as well as new & vintage guitars, banjos, mandolins, & ukuleles at all price levels -- are bought, sold, & repaired. We also host in-shop concerts by world-class musicians & offer lessons taught by a first-class 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 new website. We have added some tools to help you with your instrument searches. You can use the Search Bar just above the Navigation Menu. Just enter one or more keywords, for example "Gibson Vintage 192" for all Gibsons from the 1920's. You can also Navigate via the "Shop By" menu selections.
Some Hints: The instrument detail has been enhanced, allowing us to better organize the Features|Description|Specs and to add higher resolution Photos, Audio & Video clips, as well. (Click on any instrument photo to Zoom!) You can now Bookmark a single instrument detail page (using your favorite browser). Check out the "Brand Name" menu item to find instruments by your favorite luthier. Or you can simply enter keywords like Vintage Guitars or Vintage Mandolins into the Search Bar.
Thanks for dropping by!!

Thom Bresh In Concert
Join us for Thom's performance on Thursday, June 27, at 8:00 p.m.
Thom Bresh, Merle Travis’s son, has led a colorful life doing things like stunt work on The Lone Ranger in his youth and earning an Academy Award nomination for the theme song from the movie Tender Mercies. First and foremost, however, he’s a “thumbpicker” -- a 2001 inductee into the National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame, in fact. Also known as “Travis-picking” it’s the style of fingerpicking you’re likely to hear from Doc Watson and Jerry Reed, and Thom is one of the masters of the style. He’s a regular at Merlefest and the other great music festivals. We’re delighted to have him here for his first visit to Tiburon -- could we ‘pick’ a better way to enjoy an evening?
Tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door
