If you’ve asked yourself “how much do pawn shops pay for guitars,” you’re definitely not alone. At PawnGuru, we are commonly asked this question and we decided to finally write a blog post about it using our guitar pawn data from all of 2016.
If you haven’t heard of PawnGuru, you should get to know us! We will be saving you tons of research into guitar pawn values and other pawn information.
Essentially, we provide a free online space for pawn customers and sellers of used goods to list their items for sale. When you list an item such as your guitar on PawnGuru, your nearby pawn shops will be alerted to your listing. The pawn shops interested in your specific guitar will contact you online to make a cash offer.
This means that you get to receive multiple offers for your guitar from interested pawn shops in your local area. This is an important benefit of using PawnGuru, as not all pawn shops will take guitars or other musical instruments. PawnGuru eliminates the need to do manual research on which pawn shops in your area take guitars, as well as which ones will give you the best offer.
Pretty cool, right?
PawnGuru allows you to compare all local pawn shop offers on your guitar in one space, all without leaving your home.
We will tell you more about how to use PawnGuru later on in this post, but first, we want to answer your original question, “how much do pawn shops pay for guitars?”
