Used Instruments and Consignment option
Many people ask us about buying used instruments. What a lot of folks don't realize is that if you sell to ANY store, they're not going to get anywhere near the real value of their instrument. Understand, we'll consider purchasing, but we don't like treating folks unfairly and hate seeing them lose money on a valuable commodity. So, often times, we highly recommend considering our consignment program. By leaving it in our shop as a consignment piece, the instrument is on display in our shop, offered to the many folks who walk through our doors looking for quality instruments. Later, when someone falls in love with the instrument and buys it, the original owner gets a check for much more than they would if it was sold outright. It's a great option for many.
That being said, we've got a lot of great stuff here on the used wall
right now! Check out the 1967 Gibson Trini Lopez - it's like an ES-335 except with a different headstock and Diamond soundholes. Cool sound, cool look! and it's only $1500! We've also got a used Hofner Verythin made in Germany - it's a steal at $1400!
Also there's a used Fender USA Deluxe Telecaster, a Heritage H150CM and even a vintage Martin Style "O" all solid Mahogany Ukulele! Come check out the fun stuff!
