We Buy Guitars
We Buy Guitars has been synonymous with the buying and selling of vintage guitars and basses since 1968, but its roots actually extend as far back as 1922.
That was the year the Friedman family launched its’ first retail operation in historic downtown New York City, on land once farmed by Peter Stuyvesant. Harry Friedman named his shop Stuyvesant Loan and Music. There, he bought and sold everything, from jewelry and gold coins to used tools and—you guessed it—previously owned musical instruments, creating what may well have been the nation’s very first vintage guitar store.
