We are a shop out located in the heart of the East End of Rochester, New York.

For 40 years, John Bernunzio has bought and sold solely vintage guitars, banjos, and mandolins, including some of the most renown instruments known today. Starting from a mail order business with the name "Bernunzio Vintage Instruments," he built his love of vintage instruments from a hobby to a lucrative business, and his reputation grew with it worldwide.

In 2006, Bernunzio Vintage Instruments opened up a formal showroom in the blossoming East End, and with this big move, we changed our name to the current "Bernunzio Uptown Music." Now, with our knowledgable and experienced staff, we seek to help not only the collectors find the next rare instrument they can't resist, but we also help people to find the best first instrument for themselves.

We specialize in vintage, and used fretted instruments, but we are also dealers in new instruments, and we are one of the largest Eastman dealers in the United States.

Our shop includes a plethora of new and used guitars, banjos, mandolins, and some other unique and old instruments.

We pride ourselves on personable customer service and strive to keep our customers content long after the sale has been completed.
