Stick Enterprises takes trade-ins and can upgrade older instruments.
In addition to our current production runs of new instruments, we repair
and rebuild Sticks from all older productions going back to 1974, including
those in ironwood, injection molded polycarbonate, and later adjustable
hardwoods. We usually receive several used and older Sticks on a weekly
basis as trade-ins on new instruments, also for repairs and retrofits, and
sometimes as buy-backs.
My daughter Grace and I rework and refinish all surfaces, replace old parts,
and do the fret work, adjustments and setup required to make an old Stick
play and sound like the newest one from our current production. Of course,
older repaired and rebuilt Sticks are lacking some of the adjustable features
and components of the newer ones, but this poses no problem to players who
have decided upon one of the more standardized Stick 4ths with 5ths tunings.
Used Sticks are occasionally available from Stick Enterprises,
including newer and older instruments of all ages at prices ranging
from $1,500 to $2,200, depending on model, age and adjustable
features (prices include adjustment tools, stereo
cable and instruction book, hard or soft cases and shipping cost extra).
All instruments are reworked, refinished, and adjusted in our shop as
described above to sound and play like new.
Used Sticks are shipped with one-year guarantee as with our new instruments.
