Rick King first started buying and selling vintage guitars in 1981. In 1987 Guitar Maniacs was established in a 1904 house in beautiful downtown Tacoma. In 1990 Guitar Maniacs moved to it's first storefront location just in time for the Northwest music revolution. We've been in our current location at 737 St. Helens Avenue in downtown Tacoma since the year 2000, bringing you some of the best vintage, used and new gear - and always paying you the highest for your used and vintage gear.
