Gold Tone is the best place to find unique, folk and folkternative instruments.

Love What You Play

We love to play music, hear music, see music performed and to build and sell musical instruments. At Gold Tone, we embrace all music and musicians: beginners, hobbyists, professionals; fans of bluegrass, folk, pop, rock, or any genre. We believe that music is born in the human heart and that its expression is the ultimate statement of our humanity. Gold Tone's mission is to inspire everyone to give a voice to their musical ideas through the medium of our fretted instruments of the highest quality, offered at the fairest prices possible.

Gold Tone was founded by Wayne and Robyn Rogers, who still operate it to this day. Our extended family works hard every day to ensure that each instrument that leaves our facility meets the highest standards of utility and value. All Gold Tone instruments are designed in-house by Wayne and our luthiers and are available nowhere else. Each and every instrument is played and inspected by Robyn Rogers herself, before being sent out into the world. At Gold Tone, we care about YOU, the player. Anyone who has ever owned a Gold Tone instrument is truly part of our family.

If you call us at 321-264-1970, you'll speak with someone that is committed to your total satisfaction. Whatever the issue: praise or criticism, custom work or repair, customer service or accessories, you'll find us eager to please and ready to help.

Our A-6 Mando-Guitar

The Rise of the Mando-Guitar

The Mando-Guitar is a unique family of instruments that is tuned EADGBE like a guitar, but features a mandolin-style body. This lets guitar players use the licks and chords they know and love, while expanding their tonal range. The A-6 is our newest in the line, and features an A-style body, and an adjusted string spacing and scale-length to make it more playable and great-sounding than ever before.

Dealer Spotlight: Denver Folklore Center

The Denver Folklore Center was modeled after the original Folklore Center in Greenwich Village, whose essence propagated in much the same way folk and folklore themselves have always done. The story goes that when founder Harry Tuft was still a struggling folk musician in Georgetown, Colorado, a Denver club owner heard him play and encouraged him to open a Denver outlet of the famous Greenwich store.
