About Us

Founded by Craig Jones in 1982, Bay State Vintage Guitars has been the Boston area’s leading vintage specialist for going on four decades.  For much of that time, the shop was located in the musically rich area of Boston encompassing New England Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, and Symphony Hall.  Now located in Norwood, only a short drive from Boston, the new Bay State Vintage Guitars is run by Craig’s son Aaron Jones. Come see what we’ve got to offer!
