We do consignment. If you have a guitar that you would like us
to sell for you, we'd be glad to help.
Our consignment rates are:

...(You receive full-resolution copies of the photos of your guitar that we use for our site.)
- 20% commission of the final sale price
- 2.75% transaction fee if the guitar is purchased by credit card or PayPal
- All shipping will be
paid for by the consignee.
We do not sell cases without the purchase of a guitar. This is why we
can offer such great prices for our cases!
Also, the prices of our guitars do not include a case. Although we highly
recommend purchasing a case to protect your guitar, we can ship guitars
without a case. Guitars
purchased without a case are double-boxed. The guitar is placed inside
the first box which is then packed inside a very strong outer box.
For more specific information, please email us at email@example.com or call 828-318-4105.
We'd be glad to talk to you.
