Where to buy vintage & used guitars and basses in Rome / Italy?

Rome is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in world. But beauty isn´t enough when a vintage guitar aficionado travels abroad 🙂 On a recent trip we ended up asking ourselves exactly that question: Where to buy vintage guitars in Rome?

We found a cool little vintage guitar store out in Trastevere area named Rome Vintage Guitars

aka Liuteria Americana Roma. The store is 20 years old and is run by owner Bobò Leonello. Here is the address and phone number: +39 06 581 0797 – Via Luciano Manara 5, 00153 Roma RM, Italy.

The Trastevere area is great place to go to relax, food & drinks and shopping. So there is plenty of stuff to do when your loved one goes vintage guitar berserk.

The Great Scandinavian Guitar Show 2018 Gallery

The Great Scandinavian Guitar Show

In late Oct. 2018 V&R headed north to Stockholm / Sweden for the annual “The Great Scandinavian Guitar Show” at Fryshuset.

The Great Scandinavian Guitar Show is by far the oldest guitar show in Scandinavia. Well organized and a very friendly crew. Hotels are located in walking distance from the show = great!

Again this year a great crowd showed up and had a great time in the presence of worldclass vintage and boutique guitars from the retailers and private sellers.

Tip Top Food & Drinks

We really like that it is possible to get proper food and coffee at the show instead of the usual sandwich and hotdogs offerings at the most shows we have gone too. It makes such a difference.

Below you see pics and video interviews from the show. Feel free to share this post and tell us what you think in the comment section.

Only for vintage stuff?

No certainly not. You will find lots of cool vintage guitars, bass, effects and amps for sale at the show. But there is also a good amount of boutique builders offering their products to the public. More of that please!
