Carmine Street Guitars
Helmed by master luthier Rick Kelly, Carmine Street Guitars in Greenwich Village is a beacon of bohemia New York. The guitars Kelly and his apprentice Cindy Hulej craft are one-of-a-kind works of art made from reclaimed lumber salvaged from old hotels, bars, churches and iconic buildings including the Chelsea Hotel. Kelly’s guitars have become iconic in their own right with many of music’s greatest luminaries—Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, to name just a few—embracing the style and sound. A must-visit for music lovers.
