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.

Two Very Special Hand-Built Breedlove Guitars

We have two Breedlove guitars hand-built by Steve Henderson (one of the original founders of Breedlove) in the shop right now. 

  • 1996 SC-R Concert solid Engelmann Spruce top with rosewood back and sides - $1,200

  • 2001 SC-25/R Grand Concert solid Engelmann Spruce top w/rosewood back and sides and a cutaway ad Fishman Matrix pickup - $1,000

These are beautiful instruments that should be played! 

Introducing Makai Ukuleles

We are pleased to introduce you to a ukulele brand with local roots! Makai ukes are not only beautiful, but sound great and are priced right! 

From Makai Ukulele

"Makai Ukuleles are inspired by island tradition. Each is designed in San Francisco and carefully crafted by artistic and professional hands who care about quality, beauty, and tradition. With meticulous selection of exotic materials and the utmost attention to details, our luthiers are able to present musical instruments with unparalleled sound quality."

Come in and check a few of them out.

Check out the Eric Clapton Signature Martin Guitar

We just received a new shipment of Martin guitars including the Eric Clapton 000-28EC guitar based on his iconic MTV Unplugged performance. Constructed from East Indian rosewood, the visually stunning 000-28EC produces a well-balanced tone. We also got in a D-35, the D-15M Streetmaster, and several others.

 

You can check out the Martins we have here (though the selection may vary slightly). 

We hope you come by and see these truly amazing instruments. 

Introducing the New Breedlove Companion Travel Guitar

Breedlove has just released a new travel size guitar called the Companion that looks and sounds great. It is a scaled-down version of the immensely popular Concert and Concertina sizes. It is perfect for a student looking for their first guitar as well as a smaller travel guitar for an adult. 

The Companion, which comes with a carry bag, features a 23.5" scale length, 18 frets total, and a 3.54" soundhole diameter. The body depth is 3.25" at the neck, and four inches at the tail. The lower bout width is 13.5", the upper just under 10" with an 8" waist. The body length is 17.5". It is available to purchase for $329 or to rent under our excellent rent-to-own program for $25 a month.

You can see more details at Breedlove's web site here.

Open Mic Night - February 15th

From the hosts Austin and Andree: Are you a hobby musician or singer who enjoys folk, bluegrass, country, blues, roots, or Americana? We're musicians from Lafayette and are starting Front Porch open mic to network with like-minded musicians for enjoyment, collaboration, and to support each other on stage. Everyone should be afforded an audience, so for  two hours every month, we encourage performers to "play and stay!" This is also a great place to meet people that you're interested in playing with or performing with in the future (at this and other venues). First-time performers welcome! For more information, click here

 

Where: Big Room

When: 3rd Saturday of the month 7-9PM

Cost: $5-$10 suggested donation at the door.

Sign up today as a solo or duo (1-2 songs), or group (3 songs).  If we have time and space, we will work to accommodate those who would like to play more
