Instruments
New, Used, Consigned and Vintage


We focus on providing guitars, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles and other stringed instruments to support students of the Artichoke School of Music, as well as outreach to the community with donated instruments to help bring music to the less advantaged. Although we have significantly downsized our inventory with the expansion of our music school, we still continue a 40-plus year tradition of providing quality stringed instruments to the community.


Come on in and sit a spell!


Acoustic Guitars

Finding your acoustic guitar is like finding a friend. It isn't about how expensive it is, only how it feels and sounds to you! At Artichoke, we feature mainly fine guitars made in Canada for their great quality and value. These are the lines we currently offer.
