Once approved you can take your gear home. The minimum rental amount is $380 which could simply cover a couple of new pedals, rent for 6 months and then return them.
If you are shopping online or you are not local you can still rent. Please call us on 02 9817 2173 and we can go through the application over the phone and then ship the goods to you.
Gladesville Guitar Factory are happy to announce this rental option through Studio19. This is currently only available instore and we will soon roll it out online. It's a great way to be able to take home and play the gear you want if you don't have the full amount upfront. It's also an excellent option if you feel you may not need a piece of equipment forever, you can simply rent it for a minimum of 6 months. Another example would be for beginners that aren't sure if they will stick to guitar and don't wish to commit to an expensive instrument - it's great for schools too! You can also apply to buy at any time.
