Welcome to our website!

Real Vintage is the italian guitar website specialized in vintage instruments: our philosophy is simple: we offer only high-quality instruments, carefully selected and tested, in absolutely original and perfectly playable conditions. Real Vintage comes up from our experience as musicians and collectors, that is to say from our passion, and prefers to do things well rather than on a large scale. We choose with care what to show from our pages, and we are not in a hurry to sell or buy. In our list you’ll never find the refinished, changed-pickups or wrong-production-number instruments that today overwhelm music shop racks, magazine ads or guitar show booths. Email us or give us a call, and we’ll carefully examine together the instruments you are interested in. No alteration is accepted on our guitars, besides the routine maintenance and set-up operations, without any replacement of original parts or refinishing. These are guitars we are proud to show.  Vintage without "surprises" has been our great dream as musicians, and is our great challenge as collectors and traders. We do hope you’ll recognize in us, apart from possible purchases or trades, the same passion you have.
