The place for some of the finest, most original vintage guitars available in the world. Our roots run very deep, having been in the “old ones are better than the new ones” hunt for almost 40 years now. A very large proportion of the guitars we deal in come from original owners and/or their surviving family members. We specialize in the very rare, custom color, pre-war, flametop, and korina stuff, but we also get a hold of a lot of gems like the one granny is holding above.

We’re always interested in buying, selling, and trading, especially the really cool stuff. If we don’t have it, we can get it...

Please Help?

Donate an instrument to a great cause!

This is Louis Sanchez. His father is a very good friend of mine from Zaragoza, Mexico. With help from family and friends they have hand built the first school for kids with special needs in the entire region. Something that did not exist in this impoverished area until now. But they need more!! Your simple donation of a used instrument or a few dollars will bring joy to kids that have so little yet are so filled with love.

A used acoustic guitar, a set of maracas, bongos, a harmonica... anything the kids can play and enjoy. Or a check for a few dollars will help them buy an air conditioner, books, a computer, school supplies, or gas for the bus which must carry some of them 30 miles a day to and from the school.

Thank you, if you have any questions please call me 212-489-6630
