Great news from our friends at C. F. Martin.  They have designed a new Jeff Tweedy signature guitar.

From what we have seen, this one will appeal to our customers and inquiries are starting to come in.

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!
