Famous Old Time Music Company

Established in 1972 as a bluegrass specialty shop in Cincinnati OH, Famous Old Time Music Company has a long and colorful history. Purchased in 1981 by Vernon McIntyre, a well-known local bluegrass musician. Famous Old Time Music specializes in acoustic stringed instruments. Instrument and accessory sales, repairs, and appraisals are the bailiwick of the new retail location at Ross Millville Rd in Hamilton, OH. Lessons are, of course, offered at the new location in addition to our longstanding studio in Finneytown (a suburb of Cincinnati, OH).
