Any good vintage guitar shops in Berlin?

Hi

I will be travelling to Berlin soon, and was wondering if anyone can point me to a good vintage guitar shop or two or more?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jeff,

there’s not too many vintage shops here,
but take a look at the guitardoc in Kreuzberg, http://www.guitardoc-vintage.de/ and also this funny Little Store: Musikinstrumente&Design in Friedrichshain http://www.vintageaudioberlin.de/
Have a nice stay in town!

Best,

Ilja

Then there's Checkpoint Guitars in Berlin-Mitte, Kochstrasse (close to Friedrichstraße and not far from the main-station at the "Checkpoint Charlie"). But be warned, the owner seems to be a bit peculiar...

American Guitars in Charlottenburg always has a few vintage guitars around:

Music Service on Sonnenallee in Neukölln sometimes yields interesting finds. Especially obscure German and East German Guitars and hardware.

https://musikservice.hpage.com - their website is crap, just go there.

Both shops are small but worth a look.

If you are around Sonnenallee in the morning make sure to get arab breakfast at City Chicken Breakfast - Weichselstr. 12. It's an experience, super cheap and tasty :D

And don't forget to listen to "Neuköln" (wrong spelling) from David Bowies "Heroes" album
