Instrument Setup

We care about you as a musician and we know there is more to an instrument than just owning one, it is a connection. The perfect instrument is one that lets you express your passion without distractions or compromise. Wayne Rogers founded Gold Tone on this principle and that is why every instrument is carefully setup so that they let you express yourself with no compromise.
