used & vintage


established in 2017, 42 GUITARS is your source for used & vintage guitars, basses & effects that you might overlook but are still great sounding instruments, with tons of tone, character and an unique touch on their own.

as passionate musicians and gearheads, we'd like to share our passion & provide you with cool gear that comes off the beaten path.

we love and play rock'n'roll and we have a passion for well used & vintage instruments as well as effect pedals. beeing more of the unconventional kind we're into the less known brands & models. which dosn't mean that we won't offer the beloved and well known brands & models in our shop.
