On September 1, 2014, the keys to Guarneri House in Grand Rapids, MI were passed down from one generation to another.

Even under new ownership, the staff will stay the same with only a few new faces and we will continue to provide musicians all over the world with the finest quality instruments, bows, and repairs.

Guarneri House is a dealer of fine string instruments and bows that are suitable for the beginning student to the seasoned professional, and consummate concert artist to collector of rare instruments and bows. Our knowledge and experience runs as far back as the historical home that our shop is in and we offer repairs and restorations done by our in-house luthiers.

All string instrument repairs and restorations that are taken in at Guarneri House are performed by master craftsmen that

have won multiple awards as makers of both handcrafted instruments and bows.

For any purchases you may be interested in making, our knowledgeable staff will help guide you from accessories, to your first instrument or even commissioning a handcrafted, professional instrument or bow for orchestral or concert use. Guarneri House string instruments are always of finest quality and we specialize in string instrument repairs in Grand Rapids and can send your instruments to wherever you are located at.

We always strive to provide courteous service and the best overall experience and

look forward to having you join our new Guarneri House family.
