About Elderly Instruments

Family owned and operated since 1972, Elderly instruments is one of the world's best known sources for fretted instruments of all kinds. Our instruments are fully inspected and set-up, and we offer expert repairs and restorations by a large staff of very experienced and highly skilled repair techs.

Located in Lansing, Michigan's Old Town arts district and housed in a large, renovated former lodge hall, we ship instruments all over the planet, offering a wide array of new, used and vintage acoustic and electric guitars, mandolins, banjos, ukuleles, accessories and more.

Here at Elderly Instruments, we have a long history of great customer service and we are recognized as a leader in the fretted instrument business. Our expertise with vintage instruments, our longstanding partnerships with the world's premier instrument makers and our love of music-making in general, make us a trusted source for collectors, professional musicians and part-time pickers alike.

Shop with us here on Reverb, visit our web site, give us a call or an email, or stop by our showroom. You'll see why so many musicians count on Elderly for friendly, knowledgeable service. We'll be happy to welcome you to the family.
