Guitar Solo was voted "Best Place to Buy a Guitar" in SF Weekly's and The Guardian's "Best of San Francisco" and "Best of The Bay Area" issues.

You will find everything on this website and much more on display at our retail shop in the SOMA district of San Francisco. We stock steel nylon and string acoustics in all price levels for students and enthusiasts to professionals.

Some of the guitars (new and used) you can expect to see and play at the shop include:
Marin-Montero, Ramirez, Contreras, Sakurai, Kohno, Bernabe, Baarslag, Raya-Pardo, Prenkert, Imai, Porter, Elwell, Plazuelo, Solista, Yamaha, Larrivee, Hauser, Fleta, Teton, Blueridge, Santa Cruz, Bristol, Martin, Gibson, Kremona, Alhambra, Sunlite, Cervantes, Aria and others

We also have mandolins, banjos, and ukuleles from Amahi, Pohaku, Lanikai, Koaloha, Kala, Flyte, Makala, Fluke, Regal, Blueridge, Rover, etc.

Whatever you need for your acoustic guitar - we probably have it. We maintain a comprehensive selection of methods and songbooks for all levels and styles. Everyday accessories such as straps, picks, strings, cases, music and instrument stands, pickups, polish, etc., are always in stock and on display.

Parking can sometimes be an issue here but there is a Safeway across the street from us, where you can park for 90 minutes with a $5.00 purchase - at Safeway. Have your ticket stamped when you make your purchase there.

Our expert repairmen can take care of all your maintenance needs, from basic set ups, the installation of pickups for the amplification of your acoustic instrument, to complete restorations.

We rent student guitars and maintain a SF Bay Area Teacher List.
