- About Us
We get it- there's a lot of skeezy dealers out there looking to give you bottom-of-the-barrel prices for your used guitars and gear.
You might not know how much your gear is worth. You might not know of a place in your area you can trust. It's really easy to get taken advantage of when you just want to get the most for your gear and sell your guitar quickly. And do you really want to sell your guitar on Craigslist and have to meet up with people- heck no. And one of those big-box retailers- yeah, they're going to pay as little as possible.
At Imperial Vintage Guitars we have decades of experience appraising guitars and gear. We know if the guitar you're selling is a rare unicorn, if it's in need of repairs, or if the originality makes it a higher price point. And we don't hide any of this from you. We pride ourselves in our transparent buying process and will give you top-dollar for your used guitars and gear.
With locations in Sherman Oaks, Burbank, and Orange, we've got you covered if you want to sell your guitar in Southern California.
Here's how selling your guitar locally to Imperial Vintage works.
Bring your gear to one of our three locations or give us a call to schedule a time for us to come to you.
We'll look over your gear for condition, originality, and rarity and discuss a fair price.
We'll pay you and take your guitar off your hands.
Not in SoCal? No problem- you can still sell your guitar to Imperial Vintage.
Fill out the form below or give us a call at 818-981-1614 and we'll quote you a purchase price range.
We'll send you a prepaid shipping label and shipping box (if needed) and appraise your guitar in our shop for condition, originality, and rarity.
Once we agree on a fair price, we'll send you a payment in any form that is convenient (bank wire, Zelle, PayPal, etc.)
If you are selling your guitar or gear, we're interested. Give us a call or fill out the form and let's talk. While we specialize in selling vintage guitars, it doesn't matter if you're wanting to sell a guitar that's newer and you're just not loving or a vintage treasure that your old pops had in his closet for decades, we love all kinds of gear.
Well then, we love you. Because we love acquiring large guitar collections. We'll travel near and far in California to appraise your guitars, pay you top dollar, and load them into our van. And if you're a bit out of our travel range, then we'll gladly figure out a shipping arrangement so you can get your guitars to us so we can appraise your gear and send you payment. So if you've suddenly inherited old great-granddad's guitar collection and want to turn that into cash- we want to talk!
No problem! We have a luthier on site who will make all the repairs so you don't have to.
We put our decades of experience selling vintage guitars to use by looking at comparable sales while keeping in mind the condition of the guitar, the originality, and the rarity of your gear. The better the condition, the more original the guitar's hardware, and the rarer the guitar, the higher the price.
Sites like Reverb and eBay are full of guitars for sale at outrageous prices. But that doesn't mean those guitars are selling. We know the market and we know what's selling and what's just ridiculous.
