Financing, Payment Options, Trades, and Consignments

We have a number of great ways available for you to make your next guitar purchase! Choose Affirm Financing or The Music Zoo Credit Card to make easy monthly payments. If you need time, choose our layaway option. If you have a guitar trade, we'd be happy to know about it and will offer you top dollar for your used equipment. If you have time to wait, our guitar consignment option is a wonderful way to get the most value out of your gear, and your payout can be rolled into a new guitar purchase!

We've worked closely with Fender, Gibson, Taylor, Martin, and Jackson to make exciting custom guitars to our own specifications

Nearly everyone on the staff at The Music Zoo is a player, has a band, has a collection, or all of the above. So we have a lot of ideas about taking instruments further than what you'll find in a catalog. Fortunately, our close friendships with these manufacturers allow us to make our dreams a reality. We can help make yours come true, too. Through countless visits to factories around the country, we know just what the manufacturers can do, how they do it, and in many cases, the person actually building it. We tend to get the "good stuff" from a lot of manufacturers because they know we really care about quality.

Our staff is standing by to answer any questions you may have

Whether you're walking in from the sidewalk on Long Island or calling in from overseas, every customer gets the same personal service on which The Music Zoo has built its reputation. Please let us know how we can help you!
