I hear you’re interested in buying a New Model guitar that’s been slightly used? Great! I’m interested in helping you get a better price on it. This service is for the Continental USA Only | I can sometimes assist other areas, but please let me know in advance so I can give you an accurate quote.
How Does This Work?
I buy LOTS of new guitars every year for independent review + demo and have worked great relationships with a few select dealers. If there is a model you’d like to see on the show, when you are 100% ready to buy – just message me at the bottom of this page and let me know what make/model/color you’re after and I can get you a price quote.
I offer this service of saving you some money in exchange for letting me unbox, fully document and review your guitar on the show before you get it. If you’re in a hurry to get it or I’m not interested in reviewing the guitar – it can be sent directly to you without a video being done. You can usually expect a 2-5 week delivery estimate from the time it is delivered to me.
Sorry – I do not currently offer this service on used guitars.
How Much of a Discount Can I Expect?
I can at least save you the sales tax amount off of a purchase with my discount (don’t worry, the taxman is still paid too!) In this new, tax-heavy guitar-buying scene online – this can some nice savings! Many times I can get you a little bit more off the price for guitars priced $999+.
I do charge a fee for this service as well as a re-shipping cost, but that is directly built into the quote of the guitar. I write all my quotes in “to-your-door” terms (Tax+shipping included)
For Example – a $1999+tax Gibson can usually be had for around $1900 all in. This is a great way to directly support the show as well as get a good deal.
How Do I Pay?
For my NGD Program, I only accept FRIENDS AND FAMILY / GIFT PayPal, PERSONAL CHECK IN THE MAIL, or ZellePay. A Regular Paypal Payment is fine, but will incur an additional 3% charge on the quoted price. Saving the Paypal fee is what pays for shipping to you. For personal check orders – the money must clear before I place the order, which may result in a then “in-stock” guitar order becoming an unexpected “pre-order.”
I vastly prefer Paypal F&F Since it is faster and avoids those situations. If you need instructions on how to pay like this – please check out this help article https://troglysguitarshow.com/how-to-pay-with-paypal-gift/
Good Info To Know
Guitars are rarely perfectly flawless and all guitars are sold “as-is, used” and without a return policy, but shipped with full insurance. Should I find a big issue while inspecting your new guitar – I will alert you and have it replaced beforehand. Orders cannot be canceled once placed. Pre-Order Dates are approximate and subject to change.
There will be some light wear from me handling it and playing it.
