The American Guitar Museum:
Opened in 1992 by musician and collector Chris Ambadjes, the museum is located inside a small house ---originally a farmhouse--- in New Hyde Park. The museum also houses a music school, shop, and a guitar restoration clinic.
- The guitar played in the wedding scene of the iconic film, The Godfather. The instrument was built by John D’Angelico, who Ambadjes describes as “the Stradivarius of guitars.”
- A D’Angelico jazz ukulele built in 1932.
- The oldest instrument in the museum, a guitar built in 1840 by master Parisian guitar maker La Cote.
Best of all, the museum is free. Check the American Guitar Museum website or call for times.
