Welcome to The Exchange - the preferred choice for musicians and collectors around the world when buying and selling luthier-built instruments.
In our experience, we have found that the biggest obstacle in selling a custom, high-end guitar was the time it took, dealing with enquiries that came in and the logistical nightmare of shipping & insurance; likewise for buyers buying a pre-owned instrument it was ensuring the validity of the seller, the conditioning the guitar and of course, the shipping and importing.
The Exchange addresses all of these, giving sellers a simple, pain-free experience from start to finish when selling their guitar; and instilling total confidence from the buyer that they are buying safely and securely from the world’s leading retailer of custom guitars.
How does it work?
1. Simply fill out our consignment form below

4. The instrument is listed for sale on the TNAG Pre-Owned Collection on both our US and UK websites, which is visited by thousands of guitar collectors from around the world.
5. Once your guitar is sold, we ship it, fully-insured, to its new owner on an Express service, and the funds from the sale will be paid to you via wire transfer or PayPal.
What are the costs involved?
The shipping cost to get the guitar to our The North American Guitar showroom. This will vary depending on your location and, once you've submitted the form below, we'll be in touch to discuss the logistics with you.
Once we have received, inspected and valued your instrument, a $120 consignment fee is due, which covers the cost of creating professional photography and video of your guitar in order to represent it in the same, much lauded way that we represent all of our guitars on our website.
When your guitar sells, we take a 20% commission on the final selling price.
