used guitarOne of the main reasons for choosing to buy a pre-owned guitar is that you can get a better deal and more value for your money. The primary factor driving guitarists to purchase a used electric, acoustic, or bass guitar Learning to Enjoy Bass Guitar - Do you enjoy bass guitar? A bass guitar is a four-stringed instrument that typically accompanies a lead guitar. Some bass guitars have additional strings, with 5 or 6 strings in total. Bass guitars produce lower tones, and an electric bass guitar is connected to an amplifier for enhanced sound. When learning to play the bass… is the desire for more bang for their buck. Popular online auctions have made it much easier to find a range of used musical instruments. Before the internet The World-wide-web Niche - The global economy has been severely impacted. Millions of people have lost their jobs, many are losing their homes, and retirement portfolios are disappearing at an alarming rate. What happens in the World Wide Web? We often discuss the global financial tsunami, an economic crisis on a scale that rivals the Great Depression of the… , your only options for finding a second-hand bargain would be to visit your local guitar store, buy one from a friend, colleague, or family member, or check out a second-hand shop.

We’ve established that finding a bargain is now easier than ever. Now, let’s consider the reasons why, besides saving money, a guitarist might choose to buy used rather than new. Firstly, many buyers prefer vintage instruments that may be rare or simply sound better due to the aged components and wood. It’s common for famous musicians to collect an array of unique guitars. They appreciate having some history, and their families also like to gift them vintage instruments since no two old guitars are exactly the same. This makes the gift even more special.

So, what makes a guitar feel and sound good in the first place? Numerous factors contribute to an instrument’s playability, including the wood used, hardware (such as tuning pegs, bridge, nut, frets, pickups, wiring, and sockets). The reliability of an instrument can be significantly improved if high-quality, solid wiring and joints are used. This is particularly important for gigging musicians. While it’s essential to have backup equipment when playing live in front of an audience, ensuring that all your instruments are in top condition and using the best components you can afford makes your guitars as reliable as possible.

Recently, I encountered an issue with a new guitar I bought years ago. It was a cheap one, and I purchased an upgraded pickup to improve the sound, which it did. However, as some of the frets became worn around the twelfth and fifteenth frets (due to frequent bending while playing lead guitar), I didn’t have the frets repaired because I felt the overall value of the guitar wasn’t worth the repair cost. In contrast, I’d be more inclined to invest in maintenance for my used guitars because I got better value for the price I paid. The moral of the story is to buy a more expensive instrument used, so when it comes to replacing parts, upgrading, and general maintenance, you’ll feel better than fixing a cheap instrument.
