Factory Outlet Acoustic Guitars

Every guitar we ship goes through a rigorous inspection and set up before it's packed and sent to its new home. Sometimes a guitar doesn't quite measure up. It may have a small finish flaw or a minor mark on the body that makes it "Less Than Perfect" We set it aside and a couple of times a year offer all LTP models at significant savings. They never last long.
This year we've also listed models that were, or will be, repaired after sustaining some damage. They may not be pretty but they're as playable and sound as good as our regular guitars.
Tom Rush Signature LTP - milky headstock

We have a few (very few) guitars from this series with slightly milky headstocks (which can be seen in of the photos in the gallery below) or cosmetic blemish too minor to show in a photo. Technically and sonically they are identical to the full price Tom Rush Signature but may not be quite as pretty. When "Less-than-perfect" comes with a $100 saving pretty may take on a new meaning.

They also carry the same guarantee as our regular priced models.

An Important Note Regarding Porch Pirates

When we ship a guitar we always send it with instructions to the courier that a signature MUST obtained at the time of delivery. If no one is home to sign for the carton it will not be left. We do this to insure that your guitar does not fall into the hands of porch pirates (or other nefarious characters such as bass players or drummers).
