Outgrown, outdated or no longer needed, sometimes our gear has served us well, but it's time for it to move on. Look around the rehearsal space, studio or garage and turn the stuff you're not using into the new gear you need. You can get same-day payment if you'd like to just take the cash, or trade up to a new piece and save 10% on your purchase on top of your trade credit.
Call our toll-free number (866-498-7882) to see if your item qualifies and the location of the Guitar Center nearest you, or fill out the "sell your gear" request form and have your request routed to your nearest Guitar Center store (based on zip code) and an associate will return your email or call you with details. Make sure your items are in clean, working condition and include all necessary parts before bringing them to your local store. Sorry, we don't purchase non-functioning products.
Check in with a sales associate to review what you have to sell or trade.
While you check out the latest deals and new arrivals, your associate will review your items based on condition, brand and the store's current stock levels.
Your associate will determine the value of your items‐we can't always take everything, but we'll make an offer for all your gear that does qualify.
You walk out of the store with a check in your pocket or with the new gear you've been wanting‐with no waiting and no-hassle, same-day payment for your used gear.
