About Us


We are a vintage and specialty guitar shop located in the charming town of New Braunfels, Texas, situated right in between San Antonio and Austin. We are a small but dedicated group with one main goal in mind: to make your next guitar buying decision an effortless and worry-free experience.

Our warehouse and office are constantly kept at 74 degrees Fahrenheit and 45% relative humidity, ensuring every instrument stays stable under our care. We understand the apprehension toward buying a guitar you’ve never played so we do everything in our power to make sure the guitar looks and plays as best it can. Our talented and experienced luthier reviews every instrument after it’s been deep cleaned and set-up by one of our techs.

Once it looks and plays great, we capture high-resolution images of the guitar from our in-house studio using accurate daylight photo lighting, then we match color and dynamics on the computer against the actual guitar.

Finally, meticulous research is put into every guitar, and any critical wear, damages, and issues are thoroughly disclosed, so you can be certain there will be no surprises when you open the box. Speaking of boxes, we take immense pride in our packing and shipping practice, insuring a stable ship from us to you. (Ask us about humidipacks when shipping environmentally sensitive acoustic instruments!)

We are open to the public from 10:00AM to 5:00PM M-F by appointment only, so if you’re coming to town give us a call and stop by! Or send us an email at 31stvintage@gmail.com. Also feel free to check out our Reverb page, our Facebook, or our Instagram to keep up with all 31st Street Vintage sales and news!
