Blackrider Vintage Guitar is a Lexington, Kentucky based shop dealing in new and vintage guitars, tube amps, and parts for Gretsch, Fender, and Gibson guitars, and many others, specializing in Gretsch parts and guitar and amp restoration and repair. We are an authorized warranty center for Gretsch®, Guild®, Fender®, Jackson®, Charvel®, Squier®, Benedetto®, SWR®, Rodriguez®, & Passport®.
All of the new guitars we sell are thoroughly inspected and tweaked in our shop before they are offered for sale!
Unlike large chain-based retailers, we are a small, independently owned shop. As soon as our guitars arrive from the manufacturers, we take them out of their boxes and personally ensure they have no flaws! We send a lot of guitars back due to manufacturing errors. When you order a new guitar online, make sure you get it from a dealer that inspects the guitars they sell. You don’t want to be the one to find the error, and have to send it back–sometimes more than once–until you get one that’s satisfactory.
Our stock changes daily, so check back in or email if you don't find what you need. Most items are in stock; you will be notified ASAP if there is a back order. Used items may be one of a kind. Additional pictures available for some items upon request.
Ordering information: We accept cash, MO, cashier's checks, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and Paypal.
