FREE "Quality Assurance Setup" with Every New Guitar Purchase!

Every new guitar, $200 or more, purchased from Kennelly Keys Music includes a free “Quality Assurance Setup”. This is a professional setup and quality inspection performed by a skilled guitar technician with many years of experience. We provide this valuable service to ensure that your instrument arrives in top playing condition and plays like it should - as soon as it reaches your hands!

Factory Fresh?
Many companies advertise their guitars as "Factory Fresh," but what does this really mean? It means you will receive an instrument that has not been inspected or even looked at since it left a factory that is sometimes thousands of miles away. In reality, it is rare to find a guitar that will play its best right out of the box. Usually, there are adjustments that need to be made and fine tuning to be done; everything from de-burring frets to lowering the action with a truss rod or bridge adjustment, for example.

At Kennelly Keys Music, we set a higher standard. Your personalized “Quality Assurance Setup” means you will receive a guitar that is ready to play and free of defects. We go the extra mile to make sure you get the absolute best value for your money.

If you have a specific preference for your guitar setup, like string gauge or action, leave us a note on your order and we'll make sure it’s adjusted to your specifications. You also get your choice of new D'Addario strings! See string choices below. If you're not quite sure what you need, we can help you decide. Or, we can set up your guitar based on your skill level and playing style!
