The story behind Vintage Guitars Australia

hi, i am a private collector and player of Fender and Gibson vintage guitars and amps located in Sydney Australia, if you are interested in selling a vintage guitar or amplifier please give me a call, I am collecting mostly pre 1970, i bought my first guitar a 1962 original black Fender Stratocaster serial number 1521 in 1973 for $475 from barry farrells music in brookvale, unfortunately it was stolen from me soon after, I then bought a factory original 1962 Fiesta red stratocaster for $650 which at the time seemed like a fortune, but as most serious vintage guitar collectors know vintage Fenders and Gibson guitars can and have reached 6 figure numbers and some very special Fender and Gibson guitars are in the hundreds of thousands, I still own and play the 62 fiesta Stratocaster I bought way back then, since then i have played and collected many vintage guitars and amps, mostly from private collections, i have only ever owned and seeked the very best most original examples, i have been extreamly carefull and always had guitars inspected by well known vintage experts, but of course after collecting myself for around 40 years i know a few things and have learnt to look for all the tell tale signs about any modifications no matter how slight they may be, bottom line here i only collected factory original examples most at least 8/10 to mint condition, i welcome any inspection by serious buyers, and if a guitar is found to be not as described i offer a full refund, I have met and made friends with some of the leading most respected vintage guitar dealers and collectors in the world, i can supply references from some of the worlds leading vintage guitar experts, dealers, collectors to verify any of my guitars or to verify my years of collecting and my genuine love of the hobby of collecting vintage guitars, some guitars listed here are my own, some are friends that i personally know the guitars history , i also over the years have met many collectors and know of various high end vintage guitars that are not actively advertized for sale but i can obtain if requested, so if your after something thats not listed here let me know i can probably find it for you, or if you have a nice vintage guitar you are looking to find a new home for give me a call, all prices on guitars and amps on this site are in Australian dollars, Tony sheedy
