Ye Olde Guitar Shoppe in Des Moines, Iowa is a special place where you can feel totally at ease selecting a new guitar, tuning up or repairing your present one, or recording your music. We are the only music store in Des Moines that houses a fully operational recording studio. Our mission is to support local music and create a broader audience for the guitar. We are achieving our mission one person at a time - by creating guitar players who will attend concerts, perform themselves, and be an advocate for the instrument. Regardless of your age or experience level, our instructors will custom tailor guitar lessons to help you improve your playing ability with the instrument.
We specialize in helping musicians find their dream guitar. We hand-select the right guitar and fit it to each player. Using the right guitar is an integral part in producing the type of sound a musician wants as well as motivating the music. A properly fitted guitar in a new player's hand is a wonderful thing. Because of the high quality construction and fitting, it will be easier for him to pick up and play, and his ability to study and get up to speed will be faster.
