very fine instruments from the past
Vintage Gintage is an on-line shop specializing in vintage acoustic instruments founded by two friends who have traded instruments with each other for almost 30 years. We took the name from a tune we both liked, with apologies to the composer of the tune for borrowing his creativity.
Our love of vintage instruments started when we both developed a taste for Bluegrass Music, of which we are of course, die-hard fans.
We like all vintage acoustic instruments, but specialize in mandolins because they are easier to carry around and take up less room in the car. They also cost less to ship to our friends around the world.
If you share our love of these treasures from the past, look at our listings, and feel free to drool all over your computer.
We also accept consignments, and outright gifts of vintage instruments.
