    ”My new gold standard for transaction! This was so far above and beyond, I am super impressed and thankful. This was the best packed instrument I have ever ordered, bar none. Wrapping under the strings, under the headstock, surrounding the neck and headstock, in the cavities of the case, between the case and the box- my new guitar wasn't going to move. She showed up in PERFECT condition, and quickly! If this is how my bass was packed, I can only imagine how the heavy hitters are. THANK YOU!!!”

    “Kansas City Vintage Guitars are a great place to buy (as the names says) vintage guitars. When I asked for details of the instrument, the response was quick and professional. The 1964 Epiphone Century was shipped quickly & arrived well packaged, safe & sound in Australia. There were no issues with the guitar, I also thank Kansas City Vintage Guitars for allowing people overseas to bid/purchase their listed instruments. I shall be checking their website/store for future temptations!”

    “My first time buying a guitar of this value, and having it shipped overseas. Andrew was brilliant in keeping in touch, and made the experience one you don't often find, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thank you Andrew, for helping bring a very special guitar into my life.”
