Doggies Guitars 〜since 1983〜

I'd started my adventures in guitar hunting back in 1976. 

I went door to door, sifted through mom and pop type garages to little pawn shops in search of valuable guitars. Every now and then luck would have me at the doorsteps of bereaved families and widows of the owners of great guitars all across the United States. 


I started selling these guitars wholesale to guitar shops in the Tokyo area back in 80's. Shortly after, I opened my own shop in December of 1983. 

Now my entire collection   here at Doggies Guitars consists of the most selective pieces from my 40 years of guitar hunting. Every single one I have here are a “one and only.” 

I believe I have good guitar hunting skills in this vintage guitar safari.

Yes, we still have real, one of a kind and rare instruments and they all sound absolutely great!
