Welcome to Artichoke Guitars, Traditional, Unusual and Ethnic Musical Instruments
Enjoy my collection of fine used and vintage
electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolins, traditional, unusual
and ethnic musical instruments. I am not a guitar dealer
and this is not a guitar store.
Many instruments in my collection are rare, and have distinctive features
or histories, so please feel free to inquire about any item that interests
you, (I'll tell you what I know).
Please note that the guitar galleries chronicle my history in building
my collection, and that most of the guitars on my site are no
longer in my possession.
I'd also love to discuss instruments in your collection or any instrument
you own and are curious about or may want to sell.
If it makes music, we love it at Artichoke Guitars.

Please browse my web site, the product of my hobby of collecting
musical instruments for over 39 years. I am always in the process
of loading instruments on the site, so please visit often and/or email
requests for information regarding my collection.
Also, I'm always interested in expanding my collection and search for interesting
vintage guitars and rare instruments, so if you have something to
sell, send me a photo and email. (1/30/11)
