Buying Second-hand Guitars: What To Look For
If buying vintage or used is in the cards for you, consider the following before you buy:
Storage case: well-maintained pieces should be stored in a quality carrying case. Want to maintain the body for years to come? Even if your used instrument doesn’t include a case with the purchase, you should invest in one as soon as possible.
Body: make sure you take a good look over the body of the instrument for scratches, dents, and potential cracks. See anything worth pointing out? Speak to the studio team about what repair work has, or hasn’t, been completed.
Neck: always look at the neck to check for dents, scratches, and potential cracks. Furthermore, check out the condition of the strings. Ask when they were last replaced.
Give it a test: want to really see how it’s going to play? If possible, give it a quick test run to make sure the maintenance work sounds the way it should.
