What does B-Stock mean?
B-Stock can mean many things..........
It has been demonstration stock either at a guitar show, at Headstock Distribution in-house show room where dealers can go to choose their next consignment of stock.
It may have been in the car of a Headstock Distribution sales rep for a while - showing shops a new model etc
It may have failed Quality Control when being checked before being sent out to a shop. This can be anything from a paint chip/blemish/run/overspray. Usually something very minor. Anything major and it will mean the guitar may be broken down and used for spares.
It could be last years model
I've not heard of your store before
Ibanez Chip n Ding is a new store for 2019
However, what isnt new, is the owner - Max Cottam
Max has been involved in guitars for almost 30 years and currently is a very busy guitar repairman and also runs the ebay shop - CottamGuitarsUK
Selling mainly Ibanez guitar spares and Dimarzio pickups.
Max was approached by Ibanez' Uk distributor, Headstock Distribution, to set up an outlet for the sale of B-Stock guitars........ and here it is
I'm worried the guitar i buy will have more damage than stated
We want you the customer to be HAPPY with your purchase.
We will accurately and very openly state what defects any guitar we sell has.
So the guitar you receive has no hidden surprises
If you want to double check the status of any guitar just drop us an email and we'll confirm it for you.
Can i try a guitar before buying?
Of course!(on the guitars we hold in stock) But strictly by appointment.
Some guitars however are in stock at Headstock Distribution in Birmingham and have been checked by Max and will be shipped direct to you, and are therefore not available to try before buying
We're based in Leigh, Manchester above our jewellery store
You can find us at :
Unit 25, Spinning Gate Centre
Hopefully later on in 2019 we will have a purpose built demonstration room made.
