Tips For A Successful Consignment

Maintain Guitar’s Condition

The better the condition of your guitar, the better the sell price. Make sure to keep your instruments clean, humidified and in good working order.

Document Provenance & History

Purchase receipts, manufacturer paperwork, photos of the original owner, interesting stories and accessories that go with the guitar can all add a significant amount to the sell price of your guitar.

Work With A Reputable Consignment Service

Use an established consignment service that you trust. Look for reviews and testimonials for the shop you are consigning with. Make sure their current listings look professional and effective.

Be Prepared For Negotiation

Remember that pricing can fluctuate and that values for instruments are not always cut and dry. You will have a better consignment experience if you are ready to negotiate within reason and work with potential buyers on price.
