Buying and Selling


Do a 'trade' or a part-exchange on a guitar you once loved but for which that love (or maybe just the space!) has run out. Sadly, it happens. We will part-exchange most instruments provided they are in a reasonably saleable condition, but it's always best to phone or email before you come to the shop to avoid disappointment.

Buy in

Sometimes we are happy to simply buy an instrument off you there and then, enabling you to get instant cash (or in rare circumstances a cheque). Again, please be aware we do not always accept what gets offered to us, and it's always best to call us first or in some cases email us some pictures, it'll save you lugging your instrument all the way down for nothing.

Please do email us if you'd like to know more, or to tell us about a piece of gear you'd like to sell at:, or feel free to phone us at the shop on 0207 379 0737.

**Please kindly note that we do not offer free valuations for guitars. If you have a guitar you want to sell, we will need to see it here at the shop before we can give you any idea of what we could offer for it. Sending photos is useful, but by no means an alternative to viewing at the shop (unless you are outside the UK).

***Please also note that we only offer a trade price for part-ex or buy in and will not offer the full secondhand market value.

Buying or Selling on the Blower

So perhaps you tried a guitar out here at the shop whilst on a weekend trip to London but you couldn't make your mind up in the heat of the moment, or maybe you've just seen your dream guitar on this site and you want to just make the thing yours NOW. Whatever the reason, don't let that six-string-thing you've been after for weeks, months even years slip through your fingers. Make like a Lord and ring!

Give us a call on (+44) 020 7379 0737, Monday to Friday 10am till 7pm and Sundays 11am till 5pm (London time), and we'll have the guitar winging its way to your door before you can say 'don't tell the wife!'. We'll even call you back to save you money on phone calls. You can make a payment for an instrument using a credit or debit card over the phone, either in part (eg a 20% deposit) or in full. The two year guarantee applies as normal, and your official shop receipt will be posted to you inside the packaging.

Alternatively, you can make remote payments for our wares via bank transfer. Simply email us and request our international bank transfer details and we'll email back with all the necessaries. You'll have your new baby on its way to you in a jiffy... not a jiffy bag of course, a very sturdy cardboard box designed for guitar shipping.
