At a time when cowboys were the heroes of radio and then television, children and adults alike dreamed of the charms of western life, including cowboy guitars.
During the first half of the twentieth century, the Wild West was all anyone dreamed about. Movies and radio shows depicted heroic cowboys fighting for the law and promoting justice. The great American cowboy was the role model for every little boy and man alike until Elvis stepped onto the scene. Since then they’ve stopped producing the classic cowboy guitars that were once so popular and the existing instruments have become incredibly collectible. While many of them may no longer be playable, cowboy guitars make a great collection to hang on to or display on a wall. Check out Antique Trader’s special on collectible cowboy guitars
