A professional musician's collection of guitars—from a 2007 Gibson custom shop gold top Les Paul to a 1930s Gibson A
style mandolin—will be on display at Golden Age Guitars on Thursday, December 13 at 7 pm.
Some three dozen instruments from the late Tony Viscardo, a long time New Jersey based professional jazz guitarist, will be
for sale, hosted by his widow, Pamela, and his life long friend, NJ jazz guitarist Bob De Voe.
A musician for 45 years, Tony played with his band Aura and also 20/20. He played internationally and recorded many CDs with his band and other artists. He also played for the Broadway shows, “Bubbling’ Brown Sugar,” “Sophisticated Ladies” and Grease.”
He was a recording engineer for Curtis Music & Entertainment in addition to owning and operating No Comment Productions recording
“This is the first time that we have presented an estate collection from a working musician. While they are not all fancy or highly
collectible guitars—several are—the majority of instruments are solid good quality instruments that a working musician would use
as tools of the trade,” according to Golden Age Guitars owner John Reynolds, who noted that dozens of pedals and electronics
are included in the sale.
“We are proud that Tony’s widow, Pam, chose us to put together the collection and set up the instruments. And to have noted
guitarist Bob DeVoe play in honor of Tony and talk about his career will make it a very special night."
Admission is free and space is limited. Please call the store at 908-301-0001 with questions or email us at info@GoldenAge Guitars.com.
