How to buy a refurbished guitar, bass, amp or effect from Amazon for cheap

Fender Pawn Shop '72

You might want to bookmark this page as it will literally save you hours of searching.

Amazon is a big site. Really big. Huge. Colossal. Many guitars are sold through that site. Yes, there are sections for refurbished instruments.

Now before giving you the links so you can check out the inventory, "refurbished" does not mean "used". It can mean the item was a return (customer bought it, didn't like it, returned it,) a demo instrument (guitar has been in a guitar store for a while and played/tested by many but not bought,) a "B-stock" (slight defect, usually a dent in the body or scratch,) and so on.

That being said, here are the links:

All the links above will always show the newest listings first, so you won't see anything collecting dust in there.

Does "refurbished" mean you get a warranty?

YES! This is what Amazon states the conditions must be for any item to qualify as "refurbished":

[Refurbished means the item] has been professionally restored to working order. Typically this means that the product has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications. The item may or may not be in its original packaging. The manufacturer's or refurbisher's warranty must apply and should be included in the listing comments.

That, above all else, dictates the difference between refurbished and used. With used, there is no warranty. With refurbished, there is one.

What kinds of guitars, amps, basses and effects are available as refurbished?

All kinds. Cheap, mid-tier and high-end.

Take this high-end guitar, for example:

Fender American Vintage '58 Telecaster

That's a Fender American Vintage '58 Telecaster. Its B-stock listing has it selling for over $600 less than if you bought it new right now. That's significant.

There are several others like this at any time in the refurb/used area.

All you needed were the links to find the refurbs...

...and now you have them. As stated above, you might want to bookmark this page.

Happy hunting. 🙂
