Questions & Answers


Refurbished Instruments

What is a refurbished instrument?

A refurbished instrument is an instrument repaired to last longer than originally manufactured. Most instruments sold at Drop Dee Guitar have no visible repairs. This means when the refurbishing factory received the instrument directly from the manufacturer, their technicians inspected the instrument and determined there were no flaws. Each refurbished instrument is inspected, tested, and professionally set up by certified repair technicians. For the instruments that are repaired, their restoration shop has been awarded a "Gold" level certification from Fender and employs one "Gold," six "Silver" and several "Bronze" level repair technicians. So, you can rest assured that the instrument is now repaired to last longer than originally manufactured. To learn more about our refurbished instruments, visit our Refurbished page!

Where do you receive your refurbished instruments from?

All our refurbished instruments come from the nation's largest distributor of used guitars, located in Franklin, TN. They receive instruments directly from manufacturers for various reasons including; overstock items, discontinued products, cosmetic flaws, minor repairs.

I can request ANY guitar..?

YES! You can request any guitar, bass, ukulele, resonator, banjo, mandolin, & more! DDG will send that request into the factory to see whether they have that exact instrument, or any other instruments that are closely related to the one requested, in stock. Visit the contact page to request ANY guitar!

When do you receive new inventory?

New inventory is added to our website randomly, but frequently. We do not have a scheduled time for new deliveries. So, our inventory can change daily. We buy instruments whenever we see great pieces! It is beneficial to check our inventory frequently because most listings are single listings that aren’t promised to return to our store. To stay on top of our inventory, join the DDG newsletter!

What do you mean by single listing?

All our refurbished instruments are sent to us individually. So, when we get an instrument in stock and it sells, there is no knowing when (if) that instrument will come back in stock. It is important to check our inventory frequently because we could have something one day and it be gone the next. You can take full advantage of inventory updates by subscribing to the DDG newsletter.

What brands do you sell that are refurbished?

We carry many of the best names in musical instruments including; Fender, Epiphone, Jackson, Gretsch, Guild, Ibanez, ESP, & more! Visit our Brands page to see the ever growing list of brands we sell at DDG!
