Celebrating our 23rd year, we're proud to be here for you! Rutherford Music offers sales, lessons, repairs, band instrument rentals and more, all done in house.

Sterling by Musicman S.U.B. series basses IN STOCK !! Amazing quality for only $299 !


The Ray4 bass is the cousins of the Music Man StingRay 4 bass. Classic, iconic instruments that defined a generation of bassists since the late 70′s. Active electronics, low noise hum bucking pickups, rock solid hardware and a simple, uncluttered look that is instantly recognizable and respected.


Located 1 mile from Giants Stadium, RME opened September 3rd, 1993 with little more than a few acoustics and some amps. 22 years later, we have grown into one of the finest music stores in the tri state area. We stock over 300 guitars and amps, new and used gear. We offer music lessons for the beginner to the most advanced students with over 170 students currently enrolled. We buy, trade and consign instruments and gear so please contact us if you're selling ! Our goal is to remain the personal and professional music shop you've come to know. We don't have that mega-store mentality. Our repair facility is second to none, servicing and maintaining many hundreds of guitars and amps a year. We also offer band instrument repairs as well.
