Find High-Quality, Out-of-Production Items

Are you looking for a new piece of equipment or instrument? Does it have to be factory new, or can it be new to you? If you're looking for a new guitar, amplifier or effects pedal, consider shopping pre-owned. There are many advantages to shopping pre-owned, and you'll find a great selection of a variety of different items when you shop our pre-owned inventory.

The music industry is constantly changing, including the products. Big industry brands, like Fender and Gibson, are always trying to innovate by improving their products. With these items always changing, there are past guitar models, basses and amplifiers that are obviously out of production. A lot of these items have become collectors' items because they can create a unique sound and represent a little bit of music history.

Get It at a Reduced Price

One of the many reasons many people shop for pre-owned is to save some money. You can find great pieces at a much lower price than if you were buying brand-new.

Sometimes pre-owned has a bad reputation for being a lower quality, but musicians are known for taking care of their equipment and instruments — and you never have to question the quality of any pre-owned equipment or instruments you'll find in our inventory.

When you spend less than your original budget, you can use that extra money to treat yourself to something extra. Are you buying a guitar? Pick up a few sets of extra strings. Grab all the cables you'll need to create the best setup.

When you can find great products at great prices, why wouldn't you look through our pre-owned selection of instruments and equipment?
