    Thousands of guitar enthusiasts buy The Official Vintage Guitar Price Guide and use it continuously throughout the year. Thousands more refer to it at guitar shows, guitar shops, and of course at the local bookstore. Their hearts are racing in anticipation of finding the guitar of their dreams listed among the thousands of entries. If only you could be there every time, to assist these people in owning that instrument. You can! Get ’em while they’re in the mood, put your ad right in the face of the buyer. When they look up their favorite instrument, your ad is in their hands. Who are they going to call? Advertising in the Price Guide is an easy and profitable way to sell more gear. The fact that space is very limited (less competition), gives you even more exposure. Call your friendly VG rep now at (800) 844‑1197 while there’s still space available.
