vintage guitars and guitar playing have been my passion for over 40 years, and in 2010 I found myself owning many vintage guitars and amps, but playing only a few of them. So I started a one-man
guitar trading business, aiming at buying (predominant-ly in the US), restoring (by luthiers in the Netherlands) and selling (predominantly in Germany) vintage guitars and amps. I focus on
vintage colorful Italian (surf) guitars such as Wandre, Meazzi and Eko. In addition, I sell my own brand (CattleRanch), and write & publish booklets about vintage guitars and related.
As I do not do this for a living or for the money, I am satisfied with a small profit that supports continuation of this business. My primary goal is to keep customers satisfied.
