About us

  • Dear Friend

    We are pleased to introduce our website, to share with you the joy in showing, examining and look for, all over the world, those "cult" objects each of us has always dreamt to have in his hand, at home, in studio, on stage.
    This site has originated from the effort and the passion shared by three friendly musicians and collectors, with the intention of putting together their know-how, to show on line their most important musical instruments.
    The history, the songs, the sounds of the most importants musical bands of the last 100 years, are always associated with the most important instrument of this era.
    The legendary six strings harp and its unmistakable sound!
    Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Rickenbacker, Marshall, Vox, wrote the history of Blues, Rock, Pop, Jazz and Country music.
    The site consists of an exhibition of guitars and their surrounding world, starting from the fifties till the early seventies, without excluding some interesting recent models.
    In our collection there are guitars, basses, amplifiers and guitar effects which have represented the history of the most important sounds, rhythms, solos, riffs in the history of the contemporary music.
    It's very difficult to talk about "vintage" today, whether because a lot of instruments have passed into so many hands or because, they have been repaired or modified.

    Today finding an original, clean or mint model is therefore very complicated.
    Our aim is to propose, with our objects shown on line and our advice, a comparison with your guitars and those you would like to buy.
    Thanks to the vast connections we have all over the world, we are also in a position to make an expert analisys on the various parts of these rare instruments understanding wheter it is original or not original, a remaking, a relic job, a fake.
    And, at the end, give a real parameter of the sound of these instruments, although for some this is not so important.
    For us it is more important than the increasing value those instruments have.

    Enjoy
