- 2 Final Words
If you’re having trouble deciding whether or not to sell your guitar, perhaps the most logical way to approach the situation is by asking yourself what it means to you. Does it hold special value due to your relationship with the instrument? If so, the best solution may be to keep it. Don’t let go of something that means something simply because you’re tired of seeing it in your closet or don’t have any use for it anymore.
Please You Can Try To Sell Your Guitar Fast:
1. Offer your guitar to friends and family first.
If you do decide to sell your guitar, it’s important that you first consider selling it to friends and family members who may have an interest in purchasing it. More likely than not, they will be honored that you have chosen to offer them a memento of your relationship through this instrument. If they’re interested in buying the guitar, consider accepting their offer and using the money to purchase a new instrument.
If no one in your immediate family or community seems interested in purchasing the instrument, take to social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and ask other users who may be interested in purchasing the guitar. Even if they aren’t keen on purchasing your guitar (or just don’t have the money), writing up a post explaining why you’re selling will enable you to reach an entirely new audience that may like what they see and therefore end up becoming potential customers.
3. Look up “used musical instruments” in your city.
If you’re not satisfied with the responses you receive on Facebook, consider visiting a local used guitar store and asking about their instruments that are for sale. Most good musical instrument shops will have a wide variety of guitars from different manufacturers, some of which may even be easier to sell or trade in than others. If you’re still having trouble coming up with ways to sell your guitar, consider carrying out this action as well.
4. Contact an auction house, but know that they often take a large percentage of the sale price.
An auction house is always a good option if you’re looking to sell your guitar quickly and for a large sum of money. The downside of this is that an auction house takes a percentage of the sale price, which in many cases can be as much as 20 percent. Make sure to keep this in mind if you decide to take this route!
5. Look up “alternative use for your guitar” on Google.
If you’re still having trouble coming up with creative uses for your guitar, consider typing “alternative use for your guitar” into the search bar on Google. A wide variety of potential uses will be presented to you, including things such as using your guitar as a seat in the classroom or as part of an art installation. If none of these ideas seem appealing to you, consider the ways in which you can use your guitar the most effectively, and consider how to adapt these methods so they work for you.
6. List it on Craigslist or eBay.
That said, we should note that you should be careful when selling your guitar to avoid scam artists or buyers who could potentially be looking for a specific model. Be sure to research the models of guitars you want to sell in advance, and if you plan on listing on eBay or Craigslist, make sure to check out the seller’s feedback history first.
7. Contact local pawn shops.
If you live in a city, it’s likely that you will have access to pawn shops. These are a great place to sell an instrument if you’re looking for an instant payday. Since they’re often located in 3rd-party outposts and not the kind of brick-and-mortar shop that enables pleasant interaction with the seller or buyer, most people don’t mind purchasing their instruments here (as opposed to Craigslist or eBay where they may be able to haggle down the price).
Just remember that the pawn shop exists to make money so you will probably have to sell it at a fairly low price in this case.
8. Take your guitar to a local music shop for an appraisal.
In general, most guitar retailers will be more than happy to appraise your guitar for you in order to give you a better idea of its value. If you’re not satisfied with the price of the guitar when it’s first appraised, visit a few other music shops in your area and have them appraise it as well. You may be surprised at how much it is worth!
9. Contact musicians from local bands.
If you’re a member of the local music scene, there’s a chance that you’ll have access to other musicians that could potentially want to purchase your guitar as well. Even if you aren’t already in contact with any musicians, if they’re performing regularly in your area, you should be able to track them down eventually using Facebook and other social media sites.
10. Consider donating to a worthy cause that uses guitars in their lessons.
If you’re simply looking for a way to dispose of your guitar without feeling guilty about it, you could always consider donating it to a charity in your area that will put it to good use.
Some charities that will take your guitars:
In conclusion, the future of your guitar ultimately rests in your hands. Make sure to consider all the options available to you and make an educated decision on how you want to proceed – there’s no right or wrong choice here.
