Rothman's Guitars Photos

Welcome to Rothman's Guitars Picture page. I have included a number of Guitar pictures from my inventory of guitars. Also are a number on interesting guitars that I have run across in my guitar business.
Here is some History
for those of you who might be new to us. My grandfather David Rothman, who started Rothman's Department Store, founded us in 1918. Though our 80 years we have become a fixture in downtown Southold. An old time General Store catering to the local and tourist trade of the North Fork, we still strive to remain one of the last remaining "General Stores" on Long Island.

We probably are one of the most unique Music stores you will ever see. People like Albert Einstein and Benjamin Britten graced our halls, satisfying their musical needs. Einstein would play in Musical Quartets, organized by my grandfather, in the same building where we are today.

Guitars came into place with a small corner dedicated to several Harmony type guitars, strings and accessories. It was during the mid 60's that I took an interest in getting my own Guitar business going. Keeping an eye on the accessories and still getting those Harmony guitars, it never appeared to amount to any more than a sideline. I did expand in the late 70's and 80's getting some Yamaha and Applause guitars. It was several years ago things really took off. While picking up several used instruments I realized the interest in these "used guitars" and the vintage guitar market. As that part of my business grew, the need for some new guitars came about. That's where the CF Martin Guitar Company and the Taylor Guitar Company
came into the picture. Now being a Martin and Taylor Guitar Dealer and searching out top quality instruments, we have become Eastern Long Island most complete Vintage guitar store.

I have been involved in the Music Scene for the last 20 years, playing with several different bands. Whether it is Folk, Rock, Bluegrass, Jazz or blues, I seem to be in touch with what music is happening. Whether it's playing with "The Jody Leah Jazz Quartet," "King Scallop and the Oysterettes, " or sponsoring Jams in the local Clubs, I try to follow the music of the East End. I've been active in the music activities during the first Greenport "First Night"? along with several concerts sponsored by The Arts in Southold Town.
