Welcome to the original Guitar Exchange!

We are the original GUITAR EXCHANGE, pleasin' the public for 35 years. We want your business, we want your money, we want your guitars. We aim to please, and will bend over backwards to do so; just not forwards. Always buying and selling (and trading) vintage and rare guitars, amps, mandolins etc., with occasional emphasis on high end, late model and new instruments and amps. Serving players, collectors, investors and wannabes with equal flair and panache. All instruments guaranteed to be as represented. You can expect to receive an instrument from us set-up and ready to play, no excuses, unless otherwise specified. We are all about good service, great guitars and restrained use of exclamation points.

“Guitars will get you thru times of no money better than money will get you thru times of no guitars. Unless we're buying your guitars, in which case you should just take the money.”
