I’m always on the hunt for great deals on live band equipment. I have no problem at all buying a piece of used gear on eBay but I do wish the warranties were better. It’s tough to find a piece of used equipment that comes with a decent warranty and return policy.
That’s one reason I like to shop at Musician’s Friend. They have an excellent return policy so you can make sure a piece of equipment is really what you want before you’re stuck with it forever. They have a 45-Day Satisfaction Guarantee on anything that you buy from them and that includes their excellent selection of used equipment.
Now what makes a piece of equipment qualify as “used equipment” at Musician’s Friend? All it has to be is returned from a purchaser to become a piece of used equipment. That means it was most likely played for less than 45 days and then returned. I can tell you, that’s not very “used” at all! It’s tough to find almost new equipment like that on eBay.
So, if you’re looking for a piece of equipment, make sure you check Musician’s Friend and look closely at the pricing. You will see links in your search results lists that say “Buy New” or “Buy Used”. If you select Buy Used you will have a dropdown box to select the condition of the instrument you are looking for. The conditions are ranked 1-5 with 1 being “Like New” and 5 being “Salvage”. You can find some incredible deals while shopping for used equipment on Musician’s Friend.
