  • Bio: Capital Guitars is a web-only guitar store based in upstate New York. We take significant pride in the instruments we sell, in how well we pack them and in how quickly we ship them. You will not be disappointed!
  • Brands: We carry high quality instruments from a wide variety of builders. If you see it posted on our site, then its available for sale, as we update our inventory promptly.
  • Comments: We are always looking for premium-grade guitars in mint or near-mint condition. If you have something you would like to sell, please email your photos, a description and your price requirements to me and perhaps we can work out a deal! Looking for a layaway arrangement to hold your dream guitar? A 20% non-refundable deposit (to ensure the buyer follows-through) will be required, with the balance due within sixty (60) days. No additional finance charge! We will also consider selling your guitar for you via a consignment arrangement; contact us via email for further details.
  • Policies:
    • Payment: Capital Guitars accepts payment via PayPal, credit cars via PayPal, wire transfer, or via bank check. Guitars ship only after payment clears. See something you wish to purchase? To pay via Paypal, just click the 'Buy Now' button, or send an email to indicating the guitar you wish to purchase, where you live (for calculating the shipping cost and NYS sales tax if applicable) and confirm the email address you use for Paypal. We will send you a Paypal invoice referencing the specific guitar being purchased. Just follow the prompts in the Paypal email to pay for your guitar. Once we receive your cleared payment we will contact you with tracking information and a paid invoice. That is all there is to it! Shipments to locations within the State of New York are subject to imposition of applicable New York Sales taxes. Trade proposals involving quality gear are welcomed! Email me a pic or two of your proposed trade and a brief description of its condition and we will let you know what we can allow you in trade. We also do LAYAWAYS! All layaways require a non-refundable up-front payment equal to 20% of the purchase price. Your deposit holds the guitar for you, with 60 days to pay the balance. Contact us via email for more details.
    • Shipping: Shipping to Continental US addresses is via FedEx Ground, with flat rate shipping of $55 to Eastern time zones, $65 Central and $75 Mountain/Pacific. Shipping to Alaska and Hawaii is $100. A phone number at the shipping destination is required. ​ Other shipping services, including express services and international shipping are available at our discretion, just contact us for a quote.
    • Returns: Items may be returned for a refund of the purchase price less the original shipping cost and a 5% restocking fee if you notify us within 48 hours of receipt. Items must be promptly returned at the buyer's expense, in the same condition as received with all accessories included. Purchases that are made via layaway, those involving trades and/or international shipping are not returnable except upon an error by and at the discretion of Capital Guitars. Our apologies for these relatively draconian policies, but returns are extremely time consuming and costly, particularly for a small operation like ours.
