We've worked closely with Fender, Gibson, Taylor, Martin, and Jackson to make exciting custom guitars to our own specifications

Nearly everyone on the staff at The Music Zoo is a player, has a band, has a collection, or all of the above. So we have a lot of ideas about taking instruments further than what you'll find in a catalog. Fortunately, our close friendships with these manufacturers allow us to make our dreams a reality. We can help make yours come true, too. Through countless visits to factories around the country, we know just what the manufacturers can do, how they do it, and in many cases, the person actually building it. We tend to get the "good stuff" from a lot of manufacturers because they know we really care about quality.

Our staff is standing by to answer any questions you may have

Whether you're walking in from the sidewalk in New York or calling in from overseas, every customer gets the same personal service on which The Music Zoo has built its reputation. Please let us know how we can help you!
