If you have found a guitar or effect pedal on a search engine such as Google and it has linked you to this website, it has sold.


Most of the guitars and effects we purchase are sold to our network of dealers and collectors that we have made relationships with over the years. Remaining stock is listed on Reverb.com


We are always looking for quality used / vintage electric guitars and effects pedals. We pay more than any other guitar shop for the right stuff. Send us an email and let us know what you have, what condition it is in, and your asking price. 

We also buy complete guitar collections. 




Please keep in mind that we do not offer a free appraisal service. Finding the value of an instrument or gear has never been easier-it is simply a Google search away. If you are at a complete loss for a value, we can make an offer. We do not play “games” and believe complete transparency is the key in doing business. 

It is understood that everyone wants to get the most for their gear, but no business can pay retail. 

With that understanding, here are some of the many reasons why you should consider selling to us. 

* Online marketplaces are saturated with musical instruments. It is not uncommon to have guitars listed for months and months without a sale. At this time, one of the largest online gear websites has nearly 200,000 guitars listed. Talk about competition to sell your guitar!!!! 

* Dealing 1:1 with potential customers can be stressful. We offer a no hassle, no pressure, and no headache approach to doing business. Some buyers are very particular and the smallest detail can cause refunds and threats long after a transaction is complete. How much is it worth it to you to take all of the stress out of selling your guitar? 

* Selling Fees. The standard selling fee is 3.5%, on top of an added 2.9% credit card processing fee. That is $65 on a $1000 guitar. This does not include final negotiation of the price, possible need to add free shipping (at the cost of $50 to $100 depending on final destination), and paying for more exposure. (Online gear market places charge you a fee to move your listing to the top of the search results, without this a lot of listings never get viewed.) 

* Are you eager to move a bunch of gear quickly? There is nothing worse than watching your dream guitar slip away from you while you wait for your guitars or a big box of pedals to sell. Don’t lose out. We can buy all of your gear at once. 

* Dealing with GuitarsAndEffects.com is simple. Send us an email and let us know what you have, what condition it is in, and your asking price. We will respond back within 24 hours. It doesn’t cost anything but a few seconds of your time to get a result. I am certain we can come to an agreement that works great for everybody. Give us try!
