Johnson String Instrument will accept instruments and wooden bows previously purchased from Johnson's for trade-in from the original purchaser. Instruments and wooden bows 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 carbon fiber and composite bows and rental outfits in good condition; these are credited at 60% of the purchase price. Trade-in instruments or bows in need of repair will be discounted accordingly.
Trade-ins can be used towards an 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 fretted instruments are not eligible for trade. Trade-in credit may not be combined with any rental equity discounts. Due to a change in the federal laws, we are no longer able to accept items with elephant ivory components in trade.
