Frequently asked questions
Can you explain how your guitar barter system works?
BigScottyMusic acts as a broker between two parties who want to trade. If you have a fine guitar that you would like to trade for a watch, car, jewelry or other collectibles, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you have and what you are looking for. We will reach out to our network and let you know within three business days if we have a match. If we do not, we will keep your info on file for up to 90 days and notify you if we discover what you are looking for. We inspect all trade items, and guarantee that each party receives the item they bargained for. We do NOT warranty that the items are of any specific value or worth. That is between the two parties to negotiate. We charge a 7% commission on all transactions. Each party pays half of this to BigScotty in cash in return for fascilitating the deal.
Do you buy guitars?
Yes we do but not very often. If you have a fine guitar that is very rare or special in some way, we may be interested in purchase. If you have a guitar that is not rare or special, but you are willing to sell it wholesale (meaning we will give you approximately 50% of the street value of the instrument, in cash) then we may also be willing to purchase your guitar.
Are the tutorials you offer free of charge?
Absolutely free of charge.
What is your business model?
This is more like a labor of love than a business. We do populate some affiliate links. If you click those links and buy a product or service we get a very small commission and the price you pay is in no way impacted. We also take 7% commission on all barter items, mostly to cover the cost of bookkeeping and related paperwork.
Are you looking for content contributors?
Sure. Always willing to have that conversation, but at the moment we have no budget to pay for such content.
