Evaluation & Assessment  

Looking to buy or sell a new or used instrument?

Not sure of it's condition or value?

Whether you are planning to buy or sell a string instrument: Guitar, Bass, Violin, Cello, or others, consider ringing it to us before you finalize your purchase or sale. We evaluate and verify the authenticity and condition, make sure it is playable and tune-able, advise of damage and any repairs or adjustments it will need. We check for structure, damage, condition,  intonation, playability, and historical considerations. Many of our customers have found this service to be essential before making a commitment to buy, sell, or keep. Sellers often will agree to allow you to have a professional luthier evaluation done, before finalizing the sale. This allows you to know that you are getting what you pay for and what you are looking for.
