Family Owned Since 1972.

Founded in 1972, Elderly Instruments started as a small store with a handful of instruments. Over 40 years later, we’ve grown into one of the world’s most respected sellers of new, used, and vintage fretted instruments. While we’ve grown, we’re committed to preserving our family-owned spirit. Our staff of experienced musicians is trained to give you personalized customer service you can trust.

The Elderly Instruments Difference

We believe that each instrument should be performing at its best from the moment you grab it off the rack or it arrives at your door. Nearly every instrument we sell is thoroughly inspected and expertly set up, free of charge, by our team of experienced luthiers.
