When it comes to vintage guitars, few places on earth can even hope to compete with the expertise and inventory of George Gruhn’s mainstay shop in Nashville. Gruhn's Guide to Vintage Guitars is one of the most referenced books you can find on the subject, and the crew at Gruhn Guitars is second to none at the history, inspection, certification, repair, and upkeep of fine guitars. They’ve also got a pretty stellar collection of vintage amps.
