Bartell Headstock

Welcome to the Unofficial Bartell fan site.

I've put together this site to help keep the memory of Bartell guitars and basses alive.  Bartell, Inc was located in Riverside, CA in the 1960's and built many fine instruments under the watch of president Ted Peckels and master craftsman Paul Barth.  Their products seem to be fairly rare today, especially guitars.  The most commonly seen instrument is the fretless bass they built and rebranded for Hohner.  You can read more information on Bartell history by clicking on the ABOUT link at the top.
