The Best Way to Sell a Guitar in Chicago

Posted on September 19th, 2022 by Joe G

Collectible Guitars Equal Money in Your Pocket

If you or a family member have a cool-looking, yellow-finish guitar sitting in the back of your closet, and you are not a musician, it might be time to consider selling it. Maybe you do know how to play, but simply don’t anymore due to time constraints or lack of interest. Either way, you may not realize there are potential buyers interested in purchasing all types of collectible guitars from various manufacturers.

While many people have guitar collections, the preferred way to sell one, whether it is a Les Paul 12 string guitar or a Gibson Les Paul recording guitar, is to work with an experienced team of experts. When it comes to options for selling anything, dealing with individuals through an online marketplace can result in an undesirable outcome, and may even be dangerous. Choosing a reputable dealer who has years of experience and exceptional customer service is definitely the way to go.

Guitar Collectors Make the Best Dealers

When it comes to trust, choosing a guitar dealer who is a collector themself is the best way to ensure you receive a fair price and an accurate appraisal. Additionally, if you are in the market to purchase a vintage guitar, you will also benefit from dealing with an experienced and knowledgeable dealer who knows quality when they see it.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
