What is a refurbished instrument?

A refurbished instrument is an instrument repaired to last longer than originally manufactured. Most instruments sold at Matt's Music Store have no visible repairs. This means when the refurbishing factory received the instrument directly from the manufacturer, they inspected the instrument and determined there were no flaws. Each refurbished instrument is inspected, tested, and professionally set up by certified repair technicians. For the instruments that are repaired, their restoration shop has been awarded a "Gold" level certification from Fender and employs one "Gold," six "Silver" and several "Bronze" level repair technicians.

Where do you receive your instruments from?

All our instruments come from the nation's largest distributor of used guitars, located in Franklin, TN. They receive instruments directly from manufacturers for various reasons including; overstock items, discontinued products, cosmetic flaws, minor repairs.


When do you receive new inventory?

New inventory is added to our website randomly, but frequently. We do not have a scheduled time for new deliveries. So, our inventory can change as fast as daily. We buy instruments whenever we see great pieces! It is beneficial to check our inventory frequently because each listing is a single listing that isn't promised to return. To stay on top of our inventory, join the MMS newsletter!


What do you mean by single listing?

All our instruments are refurbished and sent to us individually. So, when we get an instrument in stock and it sells, there is no knowing when (if) that instrument will come back in stock. It is important to check our inventory frequently because we could have something one day and it be gone the next. You can take full advantage of inventory updates by subscribing to the MMS newsletter in the footer.
