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!
