Pre-Owned Gear

It always makes me laugh when I see a used car commercial on TV where the dealer refers to their used inventory as “Certified Pre-Owned”.  Like we need them to guarantee that someone has owned the car before.  Can’t the customer tell from the miles on the odometer?

But I digress.

In this crappy economic climate we’ve all been subjected to these last 24 months or so, one thing that stands out to me as both a guitar store owner and a musician, is what a super value used gear can be.  Unlike cars or large household appliances, a manufacturers warranty isn’t as important for a guitar.  When one needs work done on a guitar, one goes to their “guitar tech” or their favorite setup guy.

This supports my point that used guitar gear is that much more of a value.  Why not save some $ when getting that new guitar, amp or effect pedal.

This brings me to my second point that Fat Tone Guitars is expanding its Used and Pre-Owned gear inventory.  That’s right.  We’ve got more cool stuff in stock now at great prices.  And we’ll be constantly getting more stuff.  And almost all of our used stuff is in great shape as the original owners seem to really care about their gear.

Check out our used inventory here. And if you are interested in trading in the gear in your closet–or just want Fat Tone to sell your gear for you–just drop us a line.  We’re here to help.
