Trading and Selling / Consignment


We consider trades towards the purchase of most of our instruments. Occasionally, we also purchase instruments outright.

However, it should be noted that due to the cost of investing money until it’s sold and assuming other risks, such as market changes etc., trading or outright purchase usually will not yield the highest return for your instruments.

That being said, we understand the advantages of trading:

  1. To utilize the value of your current instrument immediately, so that it is possible to purchase your dream guitar before it’s sold to someone else. Trading somehow makes the most sense in consideration of the costs in time and money of advertising and selling an instrument yourself.

  2. To eliminate the frustration and potential loss associated with inconsiderate, untruthful, and possibly unscrupulous buyers.

We are experts in valuing instruments and make every attempt to determine fair trade values.
Our focus is on developing and maintaining long term relationships with our customers, not on one single transaction.

If you are considering a trade towards one of our instruments, or would like to discuss an outright purchase of your instrument, please fill in the Price Quote Form below or drop us an email at with your name and the corresponding details.
