Welcome to the world of CRAVE Guitars. The name ‘CRAVE’ is a play on words; as an acronym, it stands for ‘Cool & Rare American Vintage Electric’ guitars, while its literal meaning is ‘to yearn for’ or ‘to want greatly’. It may also be taken as a ‘call to action’. All of the above seem eminently appropriate.

CRAVE Guitars is driven by the beauty and functionality of vintage American guitars. These irreplaceable instruments represent a massive influence on musical evolution over the last half-century or so and they connect inextricably with changes in society and popular culture.

In addition to the instruments, there are also galleries and features on vintage effect pedals from around the globe (CRAVE Effects) and a a small number of vintage American valve amplifiers (CRAVE Amps). Modern music would simply not be the same without all these clever bits of electronics working together with a great vintage guitar.

CRAVE Guitars is a non-profit enterprise that celebrates and showcases vintage guitars both as important musical heritage and as real musical instruments to be used and played. It is neither a dealer nor a collector in the traditional sense. Please note that none of the guitars, effects or amps on this site are for sale.

CRAVE Guitars was established in 2007 to share some of the stunning innovations spanning electric guitar’s ‘golden era’ and their subsequent enduring legacy. Interested? Take a look and enjoy.
