The Guy Behind the Gear

Hi  đŸ‘‹đŸ»Â   My name is Nick and I have been a guitar player for 15+ years...

Growing up in the history filled and music rich city of St. Louis, Missouri - I first began playing the guitar when I was 7 years old learning through private lessons and actively participating in local kids rock n' roll after-school programs.

I eventually found myself playing in a band performing local venues a few nights a week. This brought with it opportunities to professionally record, perform on TV/Radio, and above all else experience playing the guitar for the likes of a couple thousand people by the time I was 13 - A significant confidence builder in my life.

What started as learning a song or two on the guitar had actually turned into learning more about myself! In the years to follow, my guitar collection began to grow and so did I. Unfortunately though the dream of performing live music as a career fell to the wayside of education and changing life goals. 

But even when I strayed the furthest, music has never left my life. And if one thing always brings me right back - it's the electric guitar. 

Hunting down, connecting with, and collecting vintage guitars that tell a story is for me an excitement that transforms a hobby into a passion! 

With years of experience collecting and playing many guitars, I am confident in my ability to pick the best out of a line of greats! I look for guitars that have character and tell a story. Guitars that have certain a sound/tonality that stands out from the rest. And most importantly, guitars that I am proud to call my own. 

If you find yourself with similar interest then you are in the right place! Let me see what I can do.
