REcent Vintage CONSIGNMENT SALE Highlights
We accept a range of acoustic and electric guitar, amplifier, mandolin, and banjo brands and price points. Ultimately, we are seeking high quality instruments from every era that have a rich history and place in the arc of instrument making.
There are several factors that help to determine the value of an instrument, starting with its age and condition. In addition, we rely on our deep sales history and current market dynamics to help determine an accurate value.
If the decision is made to consign your instrument(s) with us, we will sell your instrument on your behalf within the range of acceptable prices that are determined at the start of your consignment.
Upon your instrument's finalized sale, a check for the final sale amount, less a 25% commission fee (unless a different rate was agreed upon at the start of the consignment), will be mailed to you within a 30 day period of the finalized sale's date.
The time it takes for an instrument to sell depends on a range of variables, however, the average time is about 3 months. Thanks to our established reputation in the music community, along with our daily website and showroom traffic, the time it takes for an instrument to sell can be quite a bit faster than expected.
No. In order to maximize your return, we only list items on our high-traffic website and in our showroom. We occasionally feature instruments in supplemental social media posts and email newsletters to our client base.
