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.

Select Your Instrument No two musicians are alike. Select your Folkternative style to see what new voices fit you.

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.
