I spent the late 1990's and much of the 2000's as a music store owner and vintage guitar dealer, selling online (here on GBase as Sound Source, then Mahar's Vintage Guitars) and at guitar shows across the country. I switched gears in 2009, returning to an old passion - audio visual systems design and installation. My career change has allowed me to enjoy guitars without having to churn them to feed my family. Now you'll see vintage stuff in my store as well as the odd item from my AV systems integration business. I spent years shipping guitars, amps, drums etc around the globe, so you can trust that I'll handle the items I sell here professionally, insuring that your purchase arrives safe and sound.
