B-Stock Description

All of our products are carefully inspected before shipping to our customers. From time to time we find necks or bodies that do not meet our quality control standards and/or have been damaged during shipping.
This section is designed to offer great deals on a limited selection of our B-Stock products.

We have created two categories: B-Stock & B-Stock Plus.

B-Stock Plus listings are colour coded with a blue banner.  Within each listing we will provide pictures of the affected areas, along with a description of the issue.  Discounts will be slightly less than B-Stock listings.

B-Stock listings are colour coded with a green banner.  Each product listing will have a drop down menu based on grade and availability.  B-Stock items do not have pictures and descriptions of affected areas, therefore will reflect a higher discount.  B-Stock items are broken down into 3 grades, B1, B2, and B3.

B1 Grade stock consists of mostly cosmetic flaws.  These guitars are otherwise fully functional and perfect for an opaque finish, and may contain the following:

  • Imperfections or blemishes such as knots and stains
  • Minor dings and dents

B2 Grade stock may contain cosmetic flaws similar to B1 stock, however may require some additional woodwork.  These guitars are otherwise fully functional and additionally may contain the following:
