Vintage Electric Guitar Advertisements

Four decades of classic electric guitar advertising

Old guitar adverts are just so cool.. not only do they show some great old guitars, they demonstrate how and where the manufacturers or distributors were pitching these instruments, and are very much a snapshot of guitar players and the guitar market at that time. Adverts shown here are sorted chronologically - but you can use some of the filters below to narrow down the vintage adverts you are interested in. Only electric guitar adverts are included on this page. See also the advertisements for acoustic guitars, basses, amps and effects pedals.
