Wood & Wire Guitars & Music is a family owned and operated, stringed instrument shop in Palmer, Alaska. We offer a full service repair department, new and used instruments, a variety of accessories, and in house, private instruction. 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) and professionally setup. We take great care of our instruments so they play the best they can when you test them out.
