About US

Acoustic Vibes Music was founded in 2007 by Jeff Looker. Jeff's love for acoustic instruments started with the banjo in high school, and has carried that love all the way to today. He was even part of a Bluegrass band from 2000-2007.  He wanted to share his love for acoustic instruments with others alike, which is why he decided to become a certified instrument dealer in Arizona-  thus, Acoustic Vibes Music was born.

For over 35 years, Jeff has run his own architecture firm.  If you visit our shop in Tempe, Arizona, you'll notice it's next door neighbor is the architecture firm- but don't be fooled... Acoustic Vibes has its own glorious space for you to explore and play the instruments of your dreams.

We can proudly say it is Arizona’s (and the West’s) premier acoustic music store - just see our customer's testimonies!  We stock all major brands of guitars, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, classical guitars, archtops, resophonic guitars and more. We carry only the best quality instruments, from Martin acoustic guitars, Taylor guitars, Bedell guitars, Breedlove guitars, Lowden guitars, Collings guitars , Furch Guitars, and much more. 

 All instruments shown on the website are currently in stock at the shop (unless sold within the last day), and ready to ship or for pick up. We take our own photos of each and every instrument we receive before we list it on the website. Normal stock photos (which we will never use) of the instruments do not showcase the individual instruments unique character and detail. 

A fantastic feature of Acoustic Vibes is our AWESOME team members. We have 3 trained and certified luthiers working in the front and back of the shop.  If you aren't sure what to buy, our team has the understanding of the manufacturers and guitars we carry to help you choose the perfect instrument for you.   All of our staff is certified and trained by the manufacturers we represent. We are a C.F. Martin certified warranty repair center and a Taylor Guitars service center, as well as certified to repair all the brands we sell.  We have a highly trained repair staff who are here full time to service and take care of any repair or adjustment your instrument may need. If you need warranty work in the future, we will be here for you! If you need to bring in a repair please make an appointment. 

If you're wanting to buy your first acoustic guitar, upgrade your current guitar, or simply add to your collection, Acoustic Vibes Music has one of the best selections to choose from. Shop our selection of Martin acoustic guitars, Taylor guitars, Breedlove, Bedell, Collings,  Cordoba, Atkin, Guild, Santa Cruz, Gibson, Larrivee, Bourgeois, Furch,  and much more today.

 

(note: We have recently added a "sold" tab on our webpage for your enjoyment-  if you see an instrument you like that has been already sold, please do not hesitate to call our shop and inquire about us finding you another, so you can have one of your own!)
