Vintage Electric Guitars

Nothing screams rock and roll like an electric guitar. The words alone evoke iconic images of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin creating music history. For collectors, professional musicians and the amateur enthusiast, the vintage guitar can hold endless appeal. Those that were owned or signed by celebrities can fetch astronomical prices, and their resale value only increases with time. Others may be limited or rare editions and hard to come by today. Popular brands of electric guitars include Fender, Gibson and Teisco.

Left-Handed Vintage Guitars

It's hard to find left-handed electric guitars ; however, they're certainly available for the player who feels more comfortable using the alternative configuration. Many left-handed players simply play right-handed instruments, although some simply struggle too much. As the popularity of electric guitars grew, so did the demand for left-handed models. Famous musicians who played left-handed guitars and served to expand the market for them include Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix and Iggy Pop.

Limited Edition and Vintage Electric Guitar Styles

Certain electric guitar makes and styles have maintained popularity over the years. The 1950s and 1960s saw Fender's Stratocaster and Telecaster models, along with Gibson's Les Paul become famous guitars, which are still highly coveted today. Some limited runs or early models, such as the Gibson Explorer were simply before their time, and although they didn't impact the market much then, their scarcity and novelty factor has made them a valuable collectable now.

Parts and Accessories for Vintage Electric Guitars

There's an array of parts and accessories to go with your vintage instrument. Bridges, bodyguards and guitar strings can all be found in original packaging. The all-important amplifiers are also available, both vintage and new, so you can get the most out of your guitar. Vintage amps tend to feature the classic basketweave-style cloth, which not only provides an authentic sound, but creates a really vintage aesthetic. Bridge pins and guitar tuners may be purchased new or vintage, however, the new products are designed to blend well with the old. It's possible to find vintage guitar and bass parts to match your vintage guitar.
