Imperial Vintage Guitars
With over 30 years experience in buying, selling, and trading vintage guitars and amplifiers, we at Imperial Vintage Guitars are passionate and knowledgeable about stringed instruments.
Whether it’s a 30’s Gibson L-5, a 70’s Fender Telecaster, a 50’s Gretsch, or a hand made instrument by a contemporary luthier, we are driven by a love of music and the history of the equipment used to make it.
We always have a wide selection of vintage, new, and used guitars, basses, stringed instruments, and amps.
We pay top dollar for vintage and used instruments and we give high values for trade-ins.
We believe that what sets us apart is our experience not only as collectors and brokers,
But as musicians who maintain a career in performing and recording music professionally.
This allows us to present instruments from the perspective of the player as well as from the collector and investors’ viewpoint.
We strive to represent our instruments honestly and openly and to deal them reputably and fairly.
We offer professional repair services and can help with anything from a basic set-up to a complete vintage restoration.
Our repairs are done in-house and we are proud to offer superb services at competitive prices – all with quick turnaround times.
In addition to sales and service, we provide professional written appraisal services on your used and vintage gear.
Whether you need a single instrument evaluated or an entire collection appraised for insurance purposes or for resale, we can take care of it for a flat fee.
Stop by our original store in Burbank or at our latest location in Sherman Oaks to meet us personally and see our inventory hands-on, or feel free to call us with any questions…
We look forward to serving you!
