Merillon Guitars

Eclectic Used and Vintage Fretted Instruments and More...

Merillon Guitars is about a passion for cool guitars. That’s really it. We simply enjoy finding interesting used and vintage fretted instruments (and sometimes musical electronics) cleaning them up, learning about them, and offering them to you so you can keep them doing what they are supposed to be doing, which is making music. Whether you are looking to try something a little funky and different or you are seeking that long lost love, we can help find the right instrument to spark your passion. We have locations in Lower Manhattan (mostly solid bodies) and outside Tampa, Florida (mostly acoustics) and we tend to concentrate on unusual, mostly American made vintage guitars but we find all kinds of things in our travels and if it once made music, we’ll put it on offer here.
Have a guitar you want to sell? We can help you with that as well. Single instruments or entire collections are always welcome. If you are not sure you want to sell her yet, we can help you establish value for insurance purposes, or depending on your location, recommend a certified appraiser to give you an in-hand “What’s it worth”.
So, contact us and let us help you find your passion.

We can use any of the major carriers you choose but will generally use UPS Ground. Shipping rates do not include insurance, but we encourage its use. Under no circumstances will we lower the cost of an instrument for international shipping purposes. Seriously. Don’t Ask. In sales of bolt-on neck guitars that do not ship with a hard shell case we will be happy to remove the neck and save you a little on the shipping cost. We ship to U.S. addresses only. No P.O. Boxes. We will always pack your item to the highest standards, if you have any preferences, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

In the unlikely event that you should want to return a guitar, please contact us. We want you to be happy, but we don’t want to eat a bowl of return shipping because ‘somebody’ made you send her back. If you get my meaning. Ahem. If, from the sale date, less than 14 days has gone by and you can rationally argue that the pictures were unclear or that we were inaccurate in our description than we will do our best to make it right. This usually means that lukewarm bowl of return shipping we mentioned earlier. Always remember we are talking about guitars here, and you being happy about one at that, so just contact us, we’ll sort it out. All sales of Electronics, Parts, and Accessories are Final All sales of products listed on the “Gear” page are Final
