Wood & Wire Guitars & Music is a family owned and operated, stringed instrument shop in Palmer, Alaska. We offer private lessons in all things strings, a full service repair department, new and used instruments, and variety of accessories. Along with lessons, we host public workshops and promote education for everything we deal. We're passionate about what we do, and we strive to be a valuable resource to the Palmer community and the surrounding areas. Please sign up for our email list to keep in the know with our happenings, workshops and giveaways! 


We strive for a quaint and welcoming shop, friendly staff and small town honesty. Every instrument we hang on our walls has been inspected from headstock to end block (or strap button, as it were). We take great pride in our products and services for the best customer experience possible.
