About Us

bailey-guitar-no-backgroundWe are first and foremost a retailer of fine acoustic instruments. The custom instruments that we build and the brands that we carry are the best available. We stock some of the highest quality American made instruments, including brands such as Weber and Deering. We also carry a wide variety of used instruments.

Owner Ken Bailey grew up in central Florida. His passion for music began at an early age, learning to play guitar in college. Over the years, Ken learned to play a variety of instruments, such as the banjo, mandolin and bass. Ken began building guitars over a decade ago, around the belief that every musician deserves a high-quality, best in class instrument. A highly skilled luthier, Ken can repair or restore any stringed instrument.

The inspiration behind the unique design of a Bailey Guitar results in a bold sound, an acoustic machine, a player’s guitar, part woodworking, part the art of making a joyful noise from a piece of wood. Each one becomes very personal to the people that own them. Ken believes that every tree wants to be a guitar. He is helping them reach that outcome, one guitar at a time.

The voice of an acoustic instrument should fill the room with perfect tone and timbre. It is rare to find a retailer devoted to these kinds of instruments. Our showroom is a place where you can touch, see, and play the instrument of your dreams. We have the knowledge and experience to help you in your quest to find the perfect instrument, at the right price. It is our goal to have only happy customers, so all of our instruments come with a full money back guarantee if you are not totally satisfied.

In our custom shop we design and build what many believe are the finest acoustic guitars on the planet. We can also repair or fully restore your cherished acoustic instrument. Music is our passion. We take pride in sharing the beauty and joy of music with others.
