Capital Guitars Online operates out of the Albany, New York area. If you are going to be in the area and would like to visit to try out a particular instrument(s), please contact us to make an appointment. We will do our very best to accommodate you.

Please don't confuse us with the Capit ol Guitars that is based in St. Paul, Minnesota, or with the Capital  City Guitars that is located in Olympia, Washington.  Our friends at these similarly-named establishments tell us they often get inquiries intended for us and we often receive inquiries intended for them.​
My name is Charlie Hughes and I operate Capital Guitars. Not having anywhere near the talent necessary to make a living playing the guitar, I spent my career in the far less creative arena of government finance working for the New York State court system. I have maintained a lifelong love for fine guitars however, and the care and feeding of Capital Guitars is what I have chosen to do in retirement. It is a labor of love.

I don't have a storefront and operate out of my home as a means of keeping overhead costs and my selling prices to a minimum. Each instrument I sell has been carefully selected as a guitar I would be proud to own myself.  

I would greatly appreciate your business, but even if you don't make a purchase,  thanks very much for looking!
