Player Grade Vintage Guitars

The vintage advantage.  

Unmodified vintage instruments in excellent condition fetch the kind of top dollar that not every musician, or even every collector, can justify. Player grade vintage pieces offer the chance to own period looks, sound, and feel at a price that’s not all that different from a new or used model. Shop our player grade vintage to score the real deal vintage vibe for less.

Refins, buckle rash, extra holes, and other small cosmetic modifications don’t affect the sound, but they do affect the price. Shop player grade electrics for a shockingly good deal on the vintage piece you crave.
