Sometimes, buying used gear just makes sense. Saving money and finding out-of-production models are just a couple of reasons why a visit to this section is a must for any serious musician. For example, on the same budget, you can probably find a used high-end instrument for around the same cost as a much more basic brand-new equivalent. And you can be sure that anything in this section, although its previous owner may have decided to let it go, has definitely got a lot of life left in it. There are tens of thousands of items to choose from, including instruments, amps, DJ equipment and more, and additional used gear is arriving constantly.
By far the most popular and well-stocked category of used instruments is our selection of guitars, where we've got a huge variety of all the big names. Used Gibson Les Paul, pre-owned Fender Telecaster and secondhand Stratocaster guitars are commonly found within these pages, waiting for their new homes with players and collectors. And if you're in the market for an exceptional acoustic guitar, you'll see pre-loved Takamine, Martin and Taylor guitars in excellent condition here as well.
When finding the absolute best deal is your main concern, there's also a price drop section where you can browse used gear that's been reduced even further from its original listed price. This is the place to look if you're gearing up for a tour or improving your studio setup on a budget. And if you've had your eye on a particular item that's still a little out of your sticker range, you may just find it in this section.
Whether you consider yourself the master of thriftiness or this is your first time looking at previously-played equipment, one thing that's certain is that some of the best deals around are waiting for you in this section. Just be sure to keep in mind that if you find your dream amp or instrument, you may want to snatch it up before it catches somebody else's eye: every used item is unique, so when it's gone, it's gone for good.
