Trade-in or Sell Gear

We love trade-ins at Motor City Guitar!
We also buy used gear, from single pedals to complete vintage guitar and amp collections.


We pride ourselves in offering fair trade values and paying fair cash prices for used and vintage gear at MCG. Customers have told us many times over the years that we offered them double, triple, or even higher values than what pawn shops or other music stores had previously offered them for their used or vintage gear.

While we can't always guarantee that we'll purchase your items or give you as much as you're hoping for in trade value, we can promise you that we will always give you a 100% fair, honest and experienced evaluation of what your gear is worth, and try to help steer you in the right direction to help you meet your goals and needs.

Trade-ins for online purchases are welcome as well! We've orchestrated many cross-country deals with great results. If you have a trade idea, throw it at us! We'll do our best to make it happen for you.

If you'd like to turn some old gear into new gear or cash, email us anytime or call (248) 673-1900. The best days to visit or call the store regarding trades and gear purchases are Thursday through Sunday, when the owner Marty is in.
