Grade Range

We believe that our grading system is the best in the industry and offers an option for every taste and budget. We strive to provide clear, accurate descriptions of each grade so you will know what to expect when you buy from us. When you trade or sell your equipment to us, we evaluate it using the same criteria. All used equipment is guaranteed to work, regardless of its cosmetic condition and is covered by KEH's 6 month, non-transferable warranty.

Due to certain manufacturer's minimum pricing requirements, we are not permitted to publish the price if we sell it for less than the manufacturer's Minimum Advertised Price (MAP). While these listings may seem inconvenient, it is our way of letting you know that when you call or click-through on the website, you will be quoted the lowest pricing anywhere for comparable items.*
