Rivington Guitars always has the coolest stuff & great guys – I have purchased several guitars from Rivington Guitars, one of which is a vintage 1970s Rickenbacker 4001 bass. I love it. The price was reasonable and the employee was very helpful and knowledgeable when I bought it. These guys are honest and run a great store. They always seem to have the coolest gear in NYC!!
VINTAGE GUITARS YOU CAN'T FIND ELSEWHERE – I checked this place out first on the internet then I went to the store. The internet sight is amazing, and the store was really a treat. This place is simply the coolest. They have really cool vintage Silvertone and Magnatone amps. Rare vintage Fender Starcaster was really cool to check out. Tons of cool Les Pauls, too. Very rare and hard to find models. Prices are reasonable and staff was nice and helpful, too. They have a killer webstie, too!
KARMA POLICE, ARREST THIS STORE – This store is a ripoff. They sell "vintage" instruments which are all in need of serious costly repairs. The average consumer or musician doesnt know about the many things that can go wrong with "vintage" gear until they play with it for a month and realize the bridge is pulling apart from the guitar, or there is a major crack in the body, or the caps need replacing. This store is dishonest. They WILL rip you off. I dont see how this place is still in business.
the store is in business because "Howie" is a trust fund kid and can run the store at a loss for as long as he wants
BUYER BEWARE – this place is the worst
the owners are just DICKS
BUYER BEWARE – this place WILL rip you off if you don't know anything about musical gear they crave uneducated people the owner and the salespeople are jerks that will pay you nothing for your stuff and then turn around and praise it why are all music business so dishonest why can;t they be friendly.if you know what your doing and talking about they don't want to know you this is a place were the educated consumer is their WORST customer go to sam ash and that pretty bad
They buy and sell high-quality vintage guitars, like the Fender Jazz bass and the Gibson Les Paul, for extremely reasonable prices. – Rivington Guitars has only been open since January, but it's already hugely popular. No wonder, given that they buy and sell high-quality vintage guitars, like the Fender Jazz bass and the Gibson Les Paul, for extremely reasonable prices. A slightly beat-up but great-sounding Fender Stratocaster (Jimi Hendrix's weapon), for example, was priced at just $400 (it's normally around $900). On a typical Saturday afternoon, this low-ceilinged, studio-size store turns into a neighborhood hangout for hipsters who want to talk shop or jam. Stop by regularly to check out what's in stock good deals go quick. Repairs are also available.
