Care to join me there?  Give Paul a call for details!


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks to all who made our recent Taylor Roadshow and Find Your Fit

event a roaring success!  The folks from Taylor did a magnificent job of

telling the Taylor story and for the music they also provided!  Bravo to Rich

and Marc!  And better yet, they left some very cool guitars at great prices for

us to drool over!  See a list on our "Custom Guitar" page!



Wow! Wait 'til you see these that arrived from Taylor!

The 2014 Fall Limited Edition's are in stock!

Bad news and good!  The bad news is that all of our allocated Sassafras Limiteds

were sold even before the Taylor Wood & Steel announced them.   They were in

high demand!  The good news is that Taylor graciously gave us one more - a lovely

712E-12 Fret-FLTD!  Give Paul a call on that one - it's a real winner! (no photos yet)

Tasmanian Blackwood Dreadnought!  The Wood Is A Koa Relative And Just Fantastic!


Stop in to see these soon as Taylor is producing far fewer Limited Editions lately.

These will go fast now that the Fall Wood & Steel magazine is mailed out!

Check us out on Facebook!

Although we welcome all Internet inquiries, our main purpose at the Tobias Music web-site is to inform customers about us, to encourage them to stop in and browse some of our newest products, and to shop for all their instrument and accessory needs.  We will be very happy to ship products to customers who are unable to find a particular item at their local retailer.  Please support your local independent retailer whenever possible!  That's where the knowledge, service, and lessons are!  If your only alternative is one of the big chain stores, don't forget to ask that all-important question, "...what do you do with all the guitars that are returned after thirty days?"


    Happy T.M. Customers!

   Or check out "Yelp" and plug in "Tobias Music" near "Chicago"!

    More Happy Customers!
