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.

Andy Baxter Bass & Guitars: Q&A

Could you please tell us a little bit about Andy Baxter Bass & Guitars and where you are located? How long have you been in the business?

 Andy Baxter Bass & Guitars was set up in my own name in 2009, at that time I was running the small business from the living room of my flat in East London. By 2011 the business had outgrown the flat so I set up shop in our first proper showroom in Andrew Weatherall’s recording studio on Scrutton Street in Shoreditch, which allowed me to expand even more.  Most recently in 2015 I moved in to the new showroom at 152-154 Hoxton Street, London, N1 6SH. Over the years Andy Baxter Bass & Guitars has established a name as the best place to shop for vintage basses in the UK and recently added vintage 6 string electric & acoustic guitars along with amplification to the inventory. I have always maintained the ‘by appointment only’ approach, as I feel this helps to keep the customers’ buying experience personal as well as allowing the right work/lifestyle balance for myself – that way everyone is happy.
