"Wonderful place to find an instrument. All the salespeople were extremely friendly knowledgeable and helpful."

- Heather M

"I should have written a review for Lamorinda Music long ago. We have rented instruments from them through the years, and it's always been a pleasure. I also had some work on the neck of my electric guitar (leveling of the frets) and a fix of the electronics. All was done well for very reasonable pricing. Last week we upgraded the pickups on my son's electric bass and it was also done quickly, effectively and for a very reasonable fee. This place is a gem for Lamorinda musicians."

"Great locally owned and operated establishment. Wide selection, fair pricing

What's New

Carbon Fiber Travel Guitars and Ukes - by KLŌS Guitars

Durable, portable, amazing sound.​

KLŌS Guitars makes three different carbon fiber instruments—a travel guitar, full size guitar, and ukulele. Each model can be upgraded to Acoustic Electric and Deluxe Editions, which feature premium add-ons!


Durable Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is much stronger and more resistant than wood. The one-piece body makes a very strong structure all around, whereas wooden guitars and ukes need bracing and kerfing at the juncture of the back piece to the side piece to support the thin wood and corners. On KLŌS instruments, there are no bottom corners to crack or dent.

Detachable Neck (guitars only)

Easily Disassembled! The neck attaches to the body via our proprietary neck block. Four screws bolt the neck securely in place via metal inserts. This creates a secure joint that allows the neck to sit in its place identically every time that it is taken apart and put back together. 

We are the only KLŌS dealer in Northern Californa. Stop by and see these amazing instruments.

Welome New Guitar Instructor Alex Rein!

We are pleased to welcome Alex Rein as our newest fretted instrument (guitar, bass, ukulele) instructor to Lamorinda Music. He has been making music and educating students in the Bay Area for over 10 years.  He attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston on scholarship and is proficient in many styles of music including jazz, rock, reggae, blues, folk, country, and hip hop.   

Alex teaches all ages from beginners to advanced, and his curriculum is personalized for each and every student.  His approach ensures that the lesson is tailored to that individual, and focuses on enhancing the ear.  Developing musicality, understanding theory, and strengthening ones ability to listen are crucial concepts so that ultimately, his students are equipped with the ability to play, perform, and create music.
