Many pieces of our inventory are considered "new old stock", and have never been played or set up.
This service is offered in-house for any customers who wish to have their newly purchased instrument set up prior to shipment from our temperature and humidity controlled warehouse. This service is performed at a heavily discounted rate compared to standard shop rates.
Additional services are available. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding your instrument.
One of the many benefits of purchasing an instrument from 31st Street Vintage Guitars is our warehouse. It is kept at a constant 75F @ 45%RH. This is the ideal range for sensitive instruments. When you choose to set up your instrument before shipping, it is set up at ideal conditions. We also offer to vapor seal your instrument for shipping with a humidity control system to ensure stable humidity during shipment for as little as half the cost of most shipments. This will help protect your instrument and also retain any set up work performed in our shop. Look for this option before checkout!
