Bernunzio Uptown Music is an independent music store located in the heart of the East End entertainment district in Rochester, New York. Founded in 1974, the business has gone through several incarnations before opening a "real" retail location.

The early focus was exclusively vintage stringed instruments sold and obtained across the world; first by paper mailing list and later through an extensive website. Regarded as an expert in vintage and collectible guitars, banjos, mandolins and ukuleles, owner, John Bernunzio, turned his love of vintage instruments into a thriving business working from home.

In 2006, Bernunzio opened up a formal showroom in the bustling East End. With a friendly and experienced staff, the goal was to not only help collectors expand their collections, but also guide new customers to that perfect first guitar or banjo.

Bernunzio Uptown Music specializes in vintage, new and used fretted instruments.

The shop has the feel of a modern guitar store with a museum-like quality. The odd, unique and unknown stringed instruments still find their way here as do patrons from around the world.
