Johnson String Instrument will accept instruments previously purchased from Johnson's for trade-in from the original purchaser. Instruments will be credited at 100% of the original purchase price, minus a reconditioning fee. Johnson's also accepts trade-ins (from the original purchaser) of bows and rental outfits in good condition; these are credited at 60% of the purchase price. Trade-in instruments in need of repair will be discounted accordingly. Trade-ins can be used towards any instrument or bow, excluding consignments, of the kind that was originally purchased (violin, viola, cello, or bass) and of equal or greater value. Electric instruments and guitars are not eligible for trade.
