The Collection: Shai Ashkenazi of Imperial Vintage Guitars

One of LA’s premier vintage dealers has a personal collection to die for. We head to Sherman Oaks for an audience with the good stuff and to find out about the golden rules of guitar buying.

The Les Pauls of the Gibson Vault

Brand President Cesar Gueikian gives us the tour and brings a few guitars from his personal collection along for the ride – including a Burst that’s a close relative of one of the most famous Les Pauls of them all.

The greatest guitar collection on Earth

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has spent 25 years assembling the world’s leading collection of rock ’n’ roll, American history and pop culture artefacts. We touch down in Indiana to pay him a visit.

The Thrill Of The Chase: True Vintage Guitar’s John Shults
