Welcome to Guitar Gavel

The guitar enthusiast’s favorite online community and marketplace

With so many musical instrument marketplaces out there, you may be wondering why we started another one. Simple. Because we love guitars! More specifically, we love vintage and rare guitars that have a story - and tell a story. We know we’re not alone. That’s why we created a 3-point approach for connecting buyers, sellers, and the instruments they love.

1. Community comes first
2. A carefully curated marketplace
3. A simple, safe, and fun experience

Community comes first

We work daily to make Guitar Gavel the number one online community for professional guitarists, hobbyists, collectors, and enthusiasts like us. Inspired by BringATrailer.com’s passionate followers, we aim to bring you the same level of free connection, resources, information, and entertainment. And we’re always hard at work offering new tools and features that will bring us all together.

A carefully curated marketplace

Not just any guitar or bass can make it onto the Guitar Gavel auction site. Staying true to our love of unique, rare and vintage guitars, we curate every listing, ensuring the instruments meet our standards and inspire viewers. We also offer tips, tricks, and services to help our sellers create the most attractive and accurate posts, improving the auction experience.

A simple, safe, and fun experience
