Your musical instrument is more than just wood qand metal-- it's an investment and sometimes a member of the family. In the last 25 years, top-of-the-line vintage guitars have outperformed the stock market, precious metals and other collectibles. A written appraisal from Shomaker Guitars costs just $35 and helps protect your investment by establishing the value of your instrument in the current market, which is valuable information for your banker, insurance agent and your own peace of mind.

Here at Shomaker Guitars we have been buying and selling used instruments since 1973. Established in 1987, Shomaker Guitars was one of the first stores devoted to vintage and used instrument sales in the Triad Area of North Carolina. We buy, sell, trade and consign. Shomaker Guitars brings many years of experience to an instrument appraisal, as well as the combined decades of experience of our seasoned expert staff of musicians, retailers and repairmen. We offer this service free with any guitar purchased from our store, although the appraisal charge for other instruments is relatively small compared to the value of your investment.
