Hamilton & Son Guitar Works is founded and run by father and son duo Bob and Patrick Hamilton. Both musicians and guitar players themselves, Bob and Patrick each play in a variety of groups. Hamilton & Son started as a passion for collecting and repairing vintage guitars at home, and opened as a storefront in downtown Whitehorse in June 2015. In addition to running the shop, Bob Hamilton is a Juno award-winning producer and has operated his recording studio, Old Crow Recording, for over 25 years.
Hamilton & Son guitars are special for their unique qualities and the care that has gone into selecting and restoring them. We specialize in all facets of guitar reconstruction, and most of the guitars in the shop are vintage pieces that have been given neck resets, been re-braced, or in some cases totally rebuilt.
The shop is intended to be a resource for local and visiting musicians to gather, enjoy a great cup of coffee, and find quality repair and service for their instruments. The shop also works as a venue and workshop space, where Bob and Patrick both present shows and rent out the space for many kinds of events.
So If you ever find yourself in the Yukon be sure to stop by have a coffee and say hello!
