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. We also list your instrument on Reverb, and promote it through social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, as well as 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.
