Players Vintage Instruments

More Tenor guitars than anyone and banjos and mandolins too ... guitars even.

Howdy. I'm Banana (aka / Lowell Levinger) the proprietor of Players Vintage Instruments. Players Vintage Instruments is
the logical evolution of my instrument collection. I started collecting vintage instruments in the 60's and turned it into an Internet business in 1997.
Testing / playing a nice old guitar or banjo in a store or at a show can be frustrating. When you have a guitar shipped to you and you have an approval period, you can try it out in your own familiar environment, take it to your luthier, see what your picking partners think of it, etc. If the guitar is a good one for you, you'll know it. If it isn't, then send it back.
We want all our customers to enjoy playing the instruments they buy from us.
We only sell what we know and what interests us. That basically means acoustic fretted instruments made from the late 1800's through the late 1940's. There are, of course, some exceptions along the way.
