Musical Instruments in Portland, OR
Welcome to the twelfth Fret guitar shop, Portland Oregon. This is the home of guitar repair, custom modification, complete restoration, and custom guitar building by master craftsmen and luthiers since 1979. The tens of 1000's of instruments attended here vary from extreme vintage to just plain extreme, from acoustic to electric. The clients we serve here vary from the absolute bottom to the absolute top of the musical world. We are proud of our innovations that further the art of lutherie while carefully honoring the spirit and intent of the creators of period instrument technologies.

That's why we take the time to get to know you and your playing style so that your instrument can feel, sound and look exactly the way you need it to. Since 1979, we've built our reputation on one simple principle: Quality. We're kinda finicky that way. And apparently, our thousands of faithful clients agree, because they graciously allow us to continue this work we love. Our staff has decades of combined expertise in every aspect of fretted instrument repair and restoration.
