What's New

We're in Toronto, Canada, so in our shop all prices are posted in Canadian dollars.

For our GBase listings, we've converted all prices from Canadian to US dollars.

On January 14 2016, that rate is set to 1.4%. For example, 1000 Canadian is $714.28 US dollars.

Shipping and any applicable taxes or duties are not included in the listed prices. Instruments purchased from US or other non-Canadian locations are not subject to Canadian taxes.

Established in 1977, The Twelfth Fret was started to provide repair, restoration refinishing and custom guitars to professional guitarists.
