This is a factory authorized refurbished guitar. It was inspected and determined to have only one issue…a paint flaw. See pictures and explanation below for details.
In addition to recovering, rebuilding, and refurbishing intermediate priced guitars and folk instruments from the last 30 years, we also sell factory authorized refurbished instruments, sourced through one of the largest instrument recyclers in the US. These are a great deal for anyone that wants a quality like new instrument with a limited budget. You don’t get an equivalent you get an original.
This is a professionally refurbished instrument. They mostly come from the factory, or from large dealers. Some instruments have flaws, like a paint glitch, while some need simple repairs, not visible, like repairing a lifting bridge or fretboard. Some have a repair that is visible but makes the instrument good again, like an acoustic with a cracked soundboard that needs repaired. Sometimes it gets rejected because the color is not quite right, or it was sold with accessories, and the factory ran out of accessories.
Unlike a new instrument, or typical used one, this instrument was completely checked out, and tested by factory authorized skilled Instrument Technicians (Luthiers). After it was inspected at the refurbisher by experts, then repaired and/or verified as “like new”, it was distributed to dealers like me, to get to smart customers like you. You get a great, as-new instrument, at a great price, less than discounted new! Why buy a cheaper knock-off when you can have a original for the same investment.
If there is any visible repair or flaw on any instrument we sell, we note it here.
This instrument has a finish flaw, on the side, as seen in the pictures. The guitar was chipped or paint missed, but the polyurethane coating was applied. It is smooth to the touch, as the finish covers the wood. It cannot be sold as new, so it was sent to the refurbisher. It works and sounds great….is new, but it has a paint flaw.
By law, since it was handled after it was released, the instrument is marked as “Used” by the Refurbisher with a light stamp on the headstock, and assigned a new sticker serial number.
I offer my instruments at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. I always reject lowball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today!
