Buying, Selling and Brokering Harp Guitars is Our Specialty!
It's a delicate negotiation.
Sellers understandably want the highest possible price. Buyers
want a deal (most cannot afford even the lowest priced examples, let
alone their dream instrument).
Sellers wishing to retain
possession during listing must meet the following requirements:
I am sensitive to the issues in financing your harp guitar purchase, whether it is a $20,000 one-of-a-kind vintage piece, or a new Holloway harp guitar, and am dedicated to finding good homes for consignors instruments, and helping you obtain your dream harp guitar. Where it gets tricky is when people putting down deposits change their mind down the road, along with considering my 48-approval period, which I believe everyone should have.
So, to make sure you achieve your 100% satisfaction approval period, and complete the transaction in a reasonable time frame, I offer these terms:
"The Tonedevil was exactly what I was looking for; a well made, quality instrument that sounds and plays fantastic at a price point affordable. I sincerely appreciate the knowledge and recommendations you shared with me making this purchase a most enjoyable experience. I am hooked on this instrument! Thank you Gregg!!" - Larry Elfenbein, February, 2016
"Completely in love with it (new Dyer in walnut). Thanks so much to you for putting it out there, your work, and the makers. This is something like the 23rd guitar in my collection and has taken the #1 spot over my '28 Gibson L" - Charles, Sep. 2015
"I think it (Duane Noble harp uke) is one of the best ukuleles in the world! Thanks again!- Haoyi, Jan, 2015
"Thanks for the extreme care in packaging. (The Tonedevil) arrived in great condition. Best $600 "upgrade" that I've ever made. Prior instrument I tried did not have any where near the tone quality the Tonedevil has. Nor to the non-professional eye, the quality workmanship. Thanks for a world class transaction and an excellent instrument. Please pass on my appreciation to the Powell brothers for making a quality value for a first timer entering what I hope will be many years of enjoyment. Regards, Jerry" ― (Brown, June, 2014)
you Gregg - What a amazing experience from Harp Guitar Music!!!
made my purchase experience the most comfortable and honest
I've ever encountered! What more can a customer ask for? What's
the deal with that harp guitar? Exactly how Gregg describes
them... that's what! With years of experience, passion and
dedication...you can count on getting more then you bargain for at
Harp Guitar Music. As
for the Holloway Harp Guitar in my hands...in my personal opinion,
the harp sounds and plays better then described. It
does require some set-up work (as stated) if you require that
"certain feel" out of your guitars. The Holloway
Harp is a very stable platform that is certainly playable
out of the box...and workable well into the PRO
doesn't say much about his musicianship - modest fellow he is...be
sure to ask for his CD...you'll love that too! - Jeffrey

"I think you did a superb job when describing them in the Holloway FAQ!" - Burkhard R. Baader, Feb, 2012
sound is like having a good quality tube reverberation amp on, and
I am quite impressed with his
instrument building. It is actually better than a tube
amp reverb, because it is acoustic, but really carries the notes,
as though your hitting that feedback sweet spot with a favorite

creation, I feel fortunate to have snagged it. I would definitely
order another Harp Guitar from him in a heartbeat."

"Gregg - thanks so much for the mandolin; it's gorgeous! It's everything you described it to be. It's very, very nice." -Anonymous Collector, Feb, 2012
"I was given the Spillers harp guitar yesterday for Christmas, and it's even better than described. I've learned to expect the worst when buying guitars on the internet, so it was quite a pleasant surprise to receive an instrument described completely honestly (in fact, I didn't even notice a couple observations you'd made about the about the guitar until I re-read the description you provided...and I'm very picky about condition!) The packing was first rate as well. Thank you. Sounds great, is a joy to play. and looks fantastic. I'm very happy." -Derek Bell, Dec, 2011
"The guitar is here! She is so beautiful! I'll play it every day as soon as possible to play this wonderful instrument!" -Andreas Röper, July, 2011
guitar arrived safe and and intact. I'm pleased with the
condition it is in, it is pretty much exactly as you described it.
In general I think this will be a great guitar for me... Thanks
for your help and the ease in the process of getting the guitar,
I'm very pleased how it turned out." -Joe Gailey,
"Selling my Dyer Style 4 for the appropriate price would have been difficult and risky without your dedicated efforts. We are completely satisfied with the transaction, the more so since the new caretaker is so happy to have the treasured instrument." -Dan Pease, June, 2010
Gregg.......everything is perfect ...yesterday i got your big
flight case combo full of golden candies. What a fantastic
instrument. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for this
great transaction, the excellent packing and handling !!!!!
"As expected, the Mittenwald arrived late Saturday morning. I did not put it down until I came to work this morning. Unbelievable sound from such a small bodied instrument. Long story short, I absolutely love it and I am so glad that I found you instead of one of the Chinese rip-off artists. So, again, thank you for being honest and patient with a total stranger. I have already recommended you to the half dozen people who have seen me play this beautiful vintage masterpiece." - Mike Mychajlonka, Feb, 2009
“I got the (Dyer harp) guitar this morning. It is actually in much better shape than I thought it would be. I hope I’m in this good a shape if I make it to 90 years old! I’m looking forward to fixing it up to last another 90 years.” - Dan Dragland, Dec, 2008
"The German harp guitar arrived today safe & sound, and it is awesome! Both Annie & I think it's gorgeous and look forward to playing it a lot. It truthfully is in much better shape then I expected, so thank you for that!" - David Enke, Dec, 2008
"There is an orchestra in here! I love this guitar!" - JRJ, Sep, 2008
"I communicated with the very friendly and honest middle man Gregg Miner. Without him, having a harp guitar in my hands would not be possible, so I owe him a big thanks. The Lark in the Morning harp guitar’s base price is $1600 (US) at Harp Guitar Music. Strangely, it is a hundred dollars more expensive at Lark in the Morning. My order from Harp Guitar Music included the case, and some setup work. After shipping, customs tax, and brokerage, it came to a grand total of about $2200 (CDN)." - Muir Woods, Nov, 2007
"I simply can’t recommend Gregg Miner of Harp Guitar Music enough if you are considering selling your Harp Guitar to the right audience and getting the best professional representation possible. If he does all the work for you, Gregg will honestly and accurately describe your instrument and take nice photos which show the instrument in the best possible light. He is quite flexible as to your level of involvement in the process and appropriately prices his very fair commission based on the level of support that you require. I would confidently & whole-heartedly recommend Gregg Miner at Harp Guitar Music if you are considering either a purchase or sale of these highly specialized instruments. His knowledge is immense and his professionalism is unequaled. (Friends don’t let friends E-bay) I will definitely use Gregg in the future if I am in need of his services again." - Eric Hartshorn
