Wonderful experience selling my old guitar! John and Walter were wonderful. They took care of everything so all I had to do was drop it off at fed ex. This online transaction was so quick and easy from beginning to end and they are some of the nicest people I’ve ever talked to.

I had some questions on a guitar that I have so I sent John pictures to do an evaluation for me. Of course I was happy to pay him whatever he required. He looked at the guitar and gave me the evaluation I needed. He absolutely refused to take any money.what an awesome guy. Hopefully I need his business services in the future so I can actually give him some money! Thank you so much. I can’t recommend John high enough.

John demonstrates outstanding professionalism in his expertise and business practices. I enjoyed doing business with him, and highly recommend True Vintage Guitar to any serious collector.

The process seemed a little risky, but John is true to his word. He walked me through packaging and everything needed to ensure the instrument was safe to ship. I dropped the instrument off at FedEx late afternoon, he received it the next morning and he transferred funds within a few hours. Great experience and I’d recommend him to anyone. Thank you John!
