Guarneri House

Grand Rapids, Michigan USA

Formerly Aaron's Instruments

Worry Free Guarantees

We are here to let you know about an exciting change happening to our shop. We will officially be combining our two stores effective June 1, 2016, and will be known exclusively as Guarneri House LLC. This change will, in no way, affect your current account status or any credit that you have accrued thus far through Aaron's Instruments. You will continue to accumulate credit, but under the Guarneri House LLC name, which can be used to purchase your current rental or a step-up instrument should you choose that route. 


Many of you may not be aware of the Guarneri House LLC name. In November of 1978, Steven Reiley and Phillip Greenberg opened a full service violin shop known as Guarneri House. The shop was one of the first of its kind in Michigan - making, selling, and restoring very fine string instruments. The shop has since been servicing professional musicians not only right here in West Michigan, but around the world. Our team of luthiers are recognized worldwide for their fine craftsmanship. Aaron Reiley had a vision to provide quality service and instruments to not only the professional musician but to the novice as well. That propelled him to open Aaron's Instruments in 2007. He has now also owned and operated Guarneri House LLC, since his father, Steven Reiley, retired back in September 2014. We have been working behind the scenes since then to make this transition as seamless as possible for you and all those involved.


 As much as we hate to see the Aaron's Instruments name go, we are proud to be able to embrace our family's shop history and move forward under our new name. We would like to take this time to thank you for your continued support. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity you have given us to continue to service you and your musician under the Guarneri House LLC name. We look forward to serving you at our multiple locations where we can welcome you and hope you will visit us at either our Hudsonville or Downtown location soon.
