California Vintage Guitar & Amp
California Vintage Guitar & Amp is located in Sherman Oaks, California, in the heart of the Los Angeles film and television studio and music recording communities. We have been actively dealing in vintage and professional quality guitars, amplifiers and other stringed instruments in the Southern California area since 1968, and pride ourselves on being a guitar shop and not a big store. Our open, comfortable showroom has been the site of numerous TV commercials and video shoots. All our staff are musicians intimately knowledgeable about the brands we represent. Seth Mayer, our full-time, professional luthier, has over 25 years of experience and is capable of everything from set-ups to acoustic guitar restoration and classical guitar building. He is also a member of the Guild of American Luthiers.
We are an authorized CF Martin Marquis dealer and full-line authorized Fender, Guild, National Resophonic and Eastman arch top guitar dealer. We are also a factory-authorized Martin and Fender warranty repair center as well as a Gibson Custom Shop and Gibson Historic Collection Dealer.
California Vintage Guitar has been home to John Pisano’s monthly guitar workshops, which have recently featured Pat Martino, Herb Ellis, Ted Greene, Mundell Lowe, Laurence Juber, Phil Upchurch, Jerry Donohue, Howard Alden, Al Viola and many other noted guitar players and educators.
We accept all major Credit Cards, Wire Transfers, Cashiers Checks, Money Orders and Personal Checks (please note, personal checks may take up to 10 days to clear). International purchases must be paid by bank wire only.
