About Us

bailey-guitar-no-backgroundIn our custom shop we design and build what many believe are the finest acoustic guitars on the planet. Music is our passion. We take pride in sharing the beauty and joy of music with others.

The custom instruments that we build and the brands that we carry are the best available. We stock the highest quality American made Deering banjos.

Owner Ken Bailey’s 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, with his favorite being banjo and guitar.   Ken began building guitars over 15 years 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.

The voice of an acoustic instrument should fill the room with perfect tone and timbre.  We have the knowledge and experience to help you in your quest to find the right instrument, at the right price, repair or restore one you already own, and even offer workshops to build your own custom guitar. 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.
