FAQ

Where did you buy the guitars?

The majority of the guitars were imported from USA vintage collectors. Some were purchased by myself through music shops in Launceston and Perth.

Are your guitars 100% original components?

Yes. Unless otherwise specified, the guitars and basses on this website are 100% original. The only exceptions are the following:

  • 1954 Fender Stratocaster has a replaced string tree as listed.
  • 1957 Gibson LG-2 has remodelled tuner buttons in 2018 from a luthier in New York as listed.
  • 1964 Fedner Princeton Reverb transformer has been rewound for use in Australia with 240V as listed.
  • 1966 Telecaster has a refinish, replaced bridge saddles in case, and other changes as listed.
  • 1971 Les Paul Custom used to have Schaller tuners but has been replaced with the original tuners.
  • 1972 Stratocaster has a refret.
  • 1974 Gibson SG Standard has had three bridge saddles modified and repaired.
  • 1976 Jazz has a replaced bullet truss rod cover as the original one was hollowed out. Still in case.

Do you buy guitars from the Australian public?

No.

Do you consign guitars?

Yes. A set fee is charged to put a guitar on the website and sell it. We need the guitar to validate that it is 100% genuine and to photograph it. After photography, the guitar is returned to the customer to hold until sold.

Can I pay a guitar off?

Yes. Holding and layby of instruments involves a minimum 50% deposit with up to 120 days following to pay the remainder. After 120 days, if the instrument is not purchased outright as per the layby agreement, an initial $300 holding fee is retained and the remainder of all monies received is returned to the purchaser.

Do you charge GST?

No. Although we are a company that will be required to collect GST of 10% from Australian customers, that will only be required once we sell over $75,000 in one financial year. Exports outside Australia are excluded from GST.
