"My goal is to acquire only the most interesting vintage MIJ guitars, then give them second life, let them inspire me and when the right time comes: sell them to inspire someone else. Is that you? ;)"
My name is Michal and I'm crazy about guitars and great craftsmanship.
PolishedGuitars.com is my collection of Vintage Made in Japan guitars, mostly made by couple of brands from so called Golden Lawsuit Era: Tokai, Greco, Fernandes and Fresher.
Listed guitars are the instruments found all around the world, mostly in Japan.
Every guitar you buy here is ready to play (stage-ready) no matter if you're bedroom player or experienced stage professional.
Guitars are stored in my home in perfect conditions: the air is always fresh thanks to the mechanic ventilation and the humidity is perfect for guitars, always controlled by automated humidifier. Yeah I'm a bit guitar nerd 😉
I sell only dozen of guitars each year, I don't make my living but I found it highly satisfying to watch how guitars I found and restored, are the tools of a creativity in the hands of other guitarists 😉
PolishedGuitars.com is legally working company, that ships guitars worldwide with 14 days return-guarantee. Buying from me, you'll get an invoice and you can be sure, guitar will go smoothly through customs, since I have been selling guitars to many countries.
Have you ever bought the vintage guitar? Did you ever know that guitars haven't change so much during half of the century? Take the Fender Statocaster for instance: it has been the same since 10th of April, 1956 when Leo Fender filled the patent application for his tremolo system. Isn't it odd?
Moreover however, guitars are so different! You nearly can't find two exactly the same! Why is it like that?
Firstly because of the components... Every piece of wood is different, some want to be a table, some want to be a good guitar.
Secondly, it's because of brands and country of origins. You'd be so surprised how Japanese work ethic above all keeps highest standards in their guitars.
Thirdly and most importantly: craftsmanship! Every guitar has some kind of luthier's signature, therefore, it makes guitars so interesting!
Do you already know what's my fetish? My fetish is to know everything about guitar I bought. It's nearly impossible when you buy used vintage one, or at least most of sellers don't care so much about the real story behind every guitar they sell.
I feel completely opposite. I want to know every answer!
- production year,
- factory that made it,
- what it's made of and original specs,
- all quoting in original catalogs,
- all modifications made by previous users,
- opinions of other users,
- original price and current price range,
and many more!
We all like to test our guitars with an amp we own, so I offer you 14 days to test this guitar. If you don’t like it, you simply send it back to me with no hassle.
Every shipment from PolishedGuitars.com is packed in protecting package. However feel invited to my home to drink a cup of good coffee and test all instruments I have at the moment.
