What's New

We have acquired a LOAD of electronic components from the 1940’s thru 2000’s. Enough to equip a vintage repair shop and boutique factory. Contact me for more info,

Toby Walker, a longtime friend of Bowlbyville Guitars, will be doing some demos for us. Checkout Toby Walker online at his website,, where he offers lessons, videos and other great guitar content.

A large selection of mostly pulled and tested USA and European vacuum tubes for vintage amplifiers from pre war and early 1940’s thru the present tube amplifiers is available at very fair prices. Message me with a list of tube codes you need. Still in the long process of sorting and testing.

Many years ago there was a small guitar shop in Bowlbyville (Dover) NJ. It was my Saturday afternoon visits there that rekindled my love of guitars. The owner became my friend and muse.

I started doing a few amplifier repairs there, but my hope of working with him on a larger scale was dashed when he was suddenly taken from us. The name of my online shop is a tribute to the grit and pride of the hard working people of the neighborhood he loved.

This store is built on my personal guitar and gear collection of over 40 years, ranging from odd rarities to under-the-bed pristine to road warriors to faithfully restored vintage. Serious offers will be considered for any or all of the collection. Please allow time for me to respond to inquiries. Thanks.
