***Going on Now Thru Tuesday October 31, 2023!***

We have a pretty simple philosophy when it comes to buying used equipment from our customers: "Pay More Money."

We shop at other guitar stores too and nothing irks us more than taking in our beloved gear, looking to trade it for something new, only to receive a ridiculous low-ball offer. Quite frankly, it can be insulting. We recognize this and refuse to insult our customers. Above all else, we strive to provide the best customer service possible. While some other stores may do a great job at this when you are BUYING something from them, they usually throw that approach out the window when you want to sell or trade something to them.

At Small Box Music, we believe that our customers should always receive the best service AND the best prices, whether they are buying, selling, trading, getting a repair, or just seeking advice. We are truly grateful for our customers (we wouldn't be here with you!) and want to show our appreciation whenever we can. 

This is how we do business every day. But during the Taylor Trade In, Trade Up Event, we are offering our customers an even better deal: 


In addition to the higher prices you can expect to get from Small Box Music on your trades, we are offering you AN ADDITIONAL DISCOUNT when you trade towards a new USA-Made Taylor Guitar! 

  • Get $200 Off if you trade any USA-made guitar or any Taylor guitar.
  • Get $100 Off if you trade any other guitar. 

If you would like to see what your gear is worth on trade at Small Box Music, we would be more than happy to give you a complete valuation at no cost and with no obligation to proceed with the trade. Just bring it to us at the shop and we'll let you know how much we can give you for it.You can also give us call to get an estimated value before you make the trip. Just be aware that the final value we offer will only be made after examining and testing the equipment in person.To get the most for your gear, we recommend making sure it is fully functional, clean, setup with fresh strings (if applicable), etc. before bringing it in.


We encourage you to compare the value we offer you on your trade-in with other stores. We are confident that we will offer you more. 

In addition to offering this special discount on trade-ins, we also do consignment sales. This is a way for you to get even MORE from us when trading or selling your preowned equipment. When you sell on consignment at Small Box Music, you essentially get to name your price. 


Small Box Music buys, sells, and trades all types of guitars, amps, pedals, and many other musical instruments and audio equipment. Click HERE to browse our  selection of used and vintage gear.
