These are active buyers of high-end instruments, who trust the Dream Guitars name. They visit our site daily because they know we deliver on our promise to only offer the best.

No one does more to market your guitar than Dream Guitars. This gives us a distinct advantage in the marketplace.
We have built one of the most popular and extensive guitar websites in the world. We receive over 25,000 unique visitors every week
When your guitar arrives, it is thoroughly cleaned, restrung, and the set-up is tweaked to perfection. After a detailed inspection, your guitar moves on to the multimedia phase, where it is carefully and professionally photographed. That’s only the beginning. Next we record your guitar being played by one of our staff players, owner Paul Heumiller or Grammy Award winning guitarist Al Petteway. This insures that your instrument’s true voice can be heard as it is meant to be.
We also create a new web page for each instrument. From there potential buyers can review the photos, listen to the audio recording, and watch a High Definition movie of your instrument being played. Dream Guitars promotes your guitar in many other ways too. Each video is uploaded to our immensely popular YouTube channel, our Listening Studio, and Twitter. We also list your instrument on Gbase and Reverb, and promote it through all the social media channels–Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google +–as well as many of the most popular guitar forums.
Many of our valued clients are on the DreamCatcher Watchlist waiting for specific guitars to arrive. If your instrument matches their request, we notify them of its availability the instant it arrives.
And the biggest reason to work with Dream Guitars, our staff , at Dream Guitars we are all players. We live, eat, and breathe guitars. Musicians from all over the globe come to us for our knowledge, honesty, and experience.
