TAYLOR GUITAR SHOWROOM

At Tobias Music, we have been a proud dealer of Taylor Guitars for over 30 years. We have been one of Taylor’s Top Independent Dealers for decades. When Taylor opened up the European market, they decided to set up a number of Boutique Showrooms in a few of the large cities so that the folks in Europe could get a full Taylor Guitars Experience. The showrooms in Stockholm, London, Berlin, and other cities were very successful.

Last year, Taylor decided to bring the concept to some of their longtime dealers here in the U.S. With the new Taylor Guitars Premiere Showrooms, you are now able to come in and experience the world of Taylor Guitars. At Tobias Music in suburban Chicago, we now join stores in Canada, Texas, San Diego, and Hollywood, in offering a wide selection of Taylor Guitars, all in the comfort of our living room setting. Come on by and “Find Your Fit” in our brand new Taylor Guitars Premiere Showroom.

TOBIAS MUSIC REVIEWS

Tobias Music has hundreds of reviews. We invite you to read our reviews on Google, Yelp, Facebook, Locality, and on our Reviews page.

One of the best guitar shops in the Chicagoland area, and definitely my favorite! I started taking lessons from Tobias Music for the first time back when I was 13 yrs old and am still going to them now, 28 yrs later! You will not find a better selection of acoustic guitars accompanied with a staff that really knows their stuff. There is no need to worry about the “hard sell” with these guys. They truly want you to walk out with the guitar that suits you best, not that puts the most money in their pockets. Local and family owned! Can’t beat that!
– Brendan G.

Best guitar shop around! Professional, knowledgeable and friendly proprietors (Ken & Paul); comfortable playing ambiance; excellent maintenance and repairs for guitars: Martin, Taylor, Santa Cruz… A Guitar Player’s Heaven!
– Glen B.

You can’t beat Tobias Music. These guys are experienced players who know their stock well and take pride in their craft. They never try to sell you, either–they’re just good, helpful, knowledgeable guys
– Andrew S.
