      Hi Luke,
      If you take your guitar into your nearest PMT Store they will be able to sort the part exchange for you. Unfortunately we can't offer evaluations online!

    Hi, I'd like to upgrade my Akai LPK 25 to something like the Akai MPK Mini 2, but my only proof of purchase is a bank statement - is this okay? Cheers.

      11th January 2017

      Hi Dom, if we can find the purchase on our system you should be okay - just call the store you bought the Akai LPK 25 from and see if you're okay to come in and upgrade before you make the journey.

    Hi there, I have an Epiphone Les Paul Cuatom Pro in Alpine White that is less than two months old, and I just cannot get used to its opulence and dont want to pick it up and play it. People usually trade in to upgrade, but I want to trade this in for just a Standard Les Paul model. Are you able to help, I know that you cannot give quotes by email, but this guitar is like new and hardly played. Thanks John

    I have a 2015 Fender American Standard Strat that I am thinking about exchanging. However it does have a couple of dings on the back. What is the policy with regard to cosmetic damage on items?

    • Admin
      16th March 2017

      Hi Laurens, if you're looking to part-ex your guitar in store the price you will receive may be affected by the cosmetic damage. Cheers - Sophie

    Hi. I just want to ask if you would do part exchange on an Ibanez SR300EB. I don't want to bring it in store if there are price minimums on the items you are willing to part-ex. Most of the items I see up for part exchange tend to be on the more expensive side.

    • Admin
      29th March 2017

      Hi Steve, yes I'm fairly certain a PMT Store would part ex an Ibanez SR300EB. However, if you'd like to call your nearest PMT Store to get a 100% confirmation, all store phone numbers can be found here: - cheers, Sophie

    I bought a Yamaha DTX400K drum set about 6 months ago and I'd like to know if it's possible to trade it in for an acoustic drum worth the same price? I have barely used the electronic drums so it is in mint condition.

    • Admin
      24th April 2017

      Hi Benis, you're more than welcome to bring your electronic kit to your nearest PMT Store to get it evaluated for part-ex towards the acoustic kit that you're after.

    I'm wondering if I can part exchange at your shop as a downgrade. I have a new version of taylor 616ce and want to get a new taylor koa gs mini. In this case, will I get the difference of between the prices?
    Thank you!

    I'm looking at trading in a G&L Tribute ASAT Alassic Bluesboy semi-hollow in Blonde, which is in pretty much A1 condition. I'm wondering if this would be possible against a Gibson SG 2017 Standard T, or maybe a Special T? I'm asking because the Special isn't mega-expensive and the Standard is pretty reasonable too, and brand new the G&L is a little under £600. Cheers!

    • Admin
      22nd May 2017

      Hi Paul, yes the part-ex would be possible. If you take your guitar into your nearest store the store manager will give you a quote against the Gibson. Cheers!
