Guitars Under $100

If ever there was a time to go bargain guitar hunting it's here at WMC! We currently have at least five guitars under $100 all fully set up by us and ready to go.

Not often we see an original owner Guild from the 70's up for sale in the shop!
1975 D25 in vintage 'brown/mahogany' finish with an arched laminate mahogany back, solid mahogany sides and solid spruce top. Condition from 1-10 is about an 8.5 (by our eyes anyways). Comes with its original factory 'deluxe' chipboard case. The sound is full, loud and clear with very good balance across the fretboard-this guitar has simply aged well. No structural issues, cracks, bridge or neck angle. WMC recently serviced and restrung awaiting it's new owner.

Taylor Academy 12

They don't hang around for long (like the Taylor GS-Mini e-bass!) so make haste or it might be another month or two before we're restocked! We also have the Academy 12e as an option for plug-in convenience.

What Went Right?

We're often flummoxed by inexpensive, almost disposable student guitars that perform flawlessly and sound great. The 1/2-size Harmony just in for a repair above is a bit rough around the edges but every note plays without buzz and its intonation far exceeds the demands placed upon it. 

Although your guitar may appear similar you may not be as lucky-many of these types of student guitars made years ago often suffer from collapsed and or warped necks, lifting (unglued) bridges and buzzing frets not mention intonation issues. Although many parents, grandparents, or friends mean well, instruments for young players need to be both functioning and resilient. Just because the guitar looks like a guitar and it 'just needs a string', it may be unusable or never play in tune or let alone be accurately tuned up. We never charge for assessments and would be happy to assist you in encouraging a young musician's interest with an instrument that's an asset, not an impediment.
