Welcome to Pickers Paradise Guitars

Hello. After decades of owning a brick and mortar retail guitar shop specializing in high-end acoustic, electric, and vintage guitars / instruments, I am currently transitioning to primarily on-line sales and exhibiting/buying at vintage guitar shows. I am now residing in the Madison, Georgia area, east of Atlanta and just south of Athens, Ga. My experience includes having been an authorized dealer of: early Breedlove USA,  C.F. Martin, Collings, Deering, Eastman, Froggy Bottom, Goodall, Gretsch, Guild USA,  Larrivee, Lowden, McPherson, Santa Cruz, and Weber as well as quality beginning-mid level instruments. My vintage experience includes Fender: 1950's, 1960's & up  Strats, Teles, Jags, etc. Gibsons: acoustic and electric from the early 1800's, early 1900's, 1920's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's & up, Gretsch 1950's-60's & up, Martin's from the 1800's, early 1900's, Pre-war, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and up. Also just so many other cool instruments & amps: Supro, National, Silvertone, Dano's etc.  like  My experience in used acoustic & electric, domestic and import is many decades deep. My new goal is to offer a smaller but selective inventory of nice used and vintage instruments. I thank all of my great customers / friends who gave me the privilege of serving them in my shop (s) throughout the years. It is only through their confidence  and trust that I have been allowed to survive decades in the guitar / stringed instrument business.  I am presently looking to buy nice guitars, mandolins, other stringed instruments and old tube amps.   If interested I will drive within a few hours.
