Guitar Hunting In NYC | You Wont Believe What I Found!

Guitar Hunting In NYC | You Wont Believe What I Found!

I had some time off in New York City and decided to do a little vintage guitar shopping at some of NYC’s best guitar shops. Carmine Street Guitars, Rudy’s Music Soho and TR Crandall. I even got to play the very FIRST sunburst Les Paul from 1956!

    Cindy incidentally



  2. BROWN22SUGAR on July 23, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    I was just at Rudy’s yesterday



  3. Vic Rattlehead on July 23, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    Ny is something else. As a Californian it seems like a surreal place, would never live there but I would not mind visiting



  4. JunkBoxHero on July 23, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    Is that the "1st Burst" that Slash now owns, or the "1st Burst" that Gruen Guitars now owns?

    I’m not even a guitar-geek, but BIG thumbs-up, just for all that fascinating wood discussion with the luthier. Cheers.



  7. Eric Nelson on July 23, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    dude that "not, not serious" moment was one of the most golden moments ive ever seen hahahah



  8. Sonny Mall on July 23, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Nice guitar. What wood is that?

  9. All Guitar on July 23, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Firebird and tweed all the way man..



  10. Philip Brister on July 23, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Any one else pause the video to check out Cindy’s guitars? Pure art.



  11. Dumpster Child on July 23, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    I look at these ancient guitars and I can’t help but wonder to myself “Imagine the heart attack a collector would have if someone popped those pickups out and put them in a $250 Ibanez”

    If only he played some clean nice riffs/licks on those historical pieces. Maybe the nerves?



  15. atpix on July 23, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    I was in Rudy’s a couple years ago just as they were shooting a documentary in there with Mark Knopfler. Second time in my 50 some years that I asked for an autograph.



  16. Stephen Kraynak on July 23, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    There is a documentary on this shop, check it out pretty cool.

    The slow calendar congruently ruin because stamp intrestingly remove besides a parallel mind. military, waggish system



  18. JU5TNTIM3 on July 23, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    LOL asking the woman if you can buy the $4000 thing as the color drains from your face



  19. Mike none on July 23, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Amazing all those old guitars



  20. Aristoteles Domingo on July 23, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Wow…just wow!



  21. Boating for Beginners on July 23, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Guitar Safari = Great idea Take Wife/Girlfriend = Bad idea.. You wouldv bought it had she not been there.. and happier for it!



  22. John Thomsen on July 23, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    I jumped to the end where he said "$4,000, can we do that?" I thought he was negotiating with the owner. Then I heard his wife’s voice…



  23. brainsmoothy on July 23, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Who’s that lady with the glasses? Nothing weird.



  24. Don K Kong on July 23, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Wow! Nice job! Super entertaining stuff man!



  25. Movieslinger on July 23, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    I’d love to just walk into one of these old vintage guitar shops. If I ever go to the US, this will be one of the first things I wanna check out



  26. JU5TNTIM3 on July 23, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Ah, was this before the fall of modern free man?



  27. Michael Bosch on July 23, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    here we are on another episode of Rhett plays old Gibsons 🙂



  28. Christian Eggers on July 23, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    sweet mother that firebird is my dream guitar



  29. winiskukraine on July 23, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    I tell what is weird, I’m big into art, I watched a documentary on mark Rothko maybe a week ago? He rented 266 Bowery as his studio, I get a random guitar video on my YouTube, watch it and they make a guitar using wood from 267 Bowery, right next door to where Rothko rented, the universe is aligning



  30. Joey Scott on July 23, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Awesome ! Thank you !



  31. Aaron Sarfati on July 23, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Why does she remind me of Garth Algar?



  32. Julio Gómez - Hablando en Píxel on July 23, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Every single time i’ve got inside Rudy’s my jaw falls off with the amount of amazing vintage semi-hollows and archtops in top-notch condition they have there. 

    Still, Rhett, you’ve made a video at Rudy’s and didn’t even care to also play a couple of Pensas, just for a little while? Obviously that’s completely different stuff and not that unique at all, but was it not worthy at least of a 20 seconds clip? 

    I get it, you had to condense the essence of those three stores in a somewhat brief video and it’ll be unbearable if you play every single guitar from each one, so no big deal… 

    AND YET… ;-). 

    Now seriously, thanks for the effort you put on all the vids for your channel. I really appreciate it.



  33. D LaPorte on July 23, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    has this amp been recapped? the sales guys says "probably"…that really irritates me. know your amps, or get me someone who does.



  34. R.J. Hayes on July 23, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    I bet you keep chapstick in business when you play. Not judging, everyone has their own tic when they play. Very nice sandman btw



  35. northman logging on July 23, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    that 56 1st burst is currently on reverb…



  36. Gracebeliever077 on July 23, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    16:55 …crickets…

  38. Timoxa Deluxe on July 23, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    14:45 creeped me out a bit 🙂



  39. Marjorie Judge on July 23, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    so knots in the wood don’t matter (???)



  40. Max Lamboy on July 23, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Visit Mike at 30th street guitars?



  41. Ted Palardy on July 23, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Hey ! At 16:06 you play a riff on that firebird . I’m trying to find out what that tune is , I even messaged you about that . Appreciate you ! Thanks



  42. Htiek Eromezis on July 23, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Man, you had that Firebird and didn’t play any Skynyrd? Sacrilege!



  43. lyndon watkins on July 23, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    One thing I love about Rudy’s is that they don’t just sell and trade, they drop knowledge which helps more than you know.



  44. johnny Johnson on July 23, 2021 at 9:48 pm
