COVID19 UPDATE:  WE ARE OPEN & HAVE A LARGE INVENTORY READY TO SHIP

About the Cases and Stands

After a while of collecting dust on the shelves, we've decided to offload some of the cases and stands to free up some room for new products.  We've never advertised them for sale until now and we expect them to sell quickly.  We will periodically update this page, particularly when items are sold or a sale is pending.  The last update will be posted at the top of the page.

All cases/stands function identically to a brand new version, meaning they are legitimate humidors that will protect your instrument EXACTLY the same as our new inventory.  Please read the descriptions and note the abbreviations of each Second Hand Inventory item at the bottom of this page.

    Second Hand Description/Type

    • Scratch & Dent (S&D)
      • As the name indicates, these items will tend to exhibit cosmetic flaws.  Some have noticeable scratches or dents and others are very hard to see with the untrained eye.  Often times the flaws are typical of damages that can occur during shipping or from use for product photography, at trade shows, or have been returned by the customer

      • Most of the time we will repair as much as we can, but the defect may still be noticeable.  Sometimes the scratch or dent can not be removed without compromising the evenness of the surface, which is true of deep dents or scratches.  Sometimes if the case is stained, the removal of the flaw would look worse than leaving it

    • Old Style (OS)
      • We've made some minor changes to the design of the ClimaCase/ClimaStand over the years.  As a result, we have some older versions on the shelf

      • Examples include but are not limited to:  Discontinued size - our previously offered 5 3/4" depth for electric guitars has been replaced with 7" depth for both acoustic and electric guitars; Door frame - 2" width door frame changed to our current 1 3/4"

      • Discontinued Inventory (DI)
        • Sometimes we try out woods and the end result was not quite what we expected.  After a while, we remove these from inventory on the website and keep them set aside for sales like this

            • Splaying measures approximately 1 1/4" in diameter

            • Can be fixed with some carpenter's glue, which will get the surface even but will have permanent cosmetic flaws; however, if used as a wall mounted ClimaCase, the flaws will never be visible

                • UV glass already installed, meaning it cannot be removed and is considered in the cost.  Typically this is a $150 upgrade.

                • Previously had a Powered LED light strip installed, meaning a 1/2" hole in the back right corner of the case used for exiting the wires for the strip currently has a U-shaped 1/2" plug.  If upgraded to included the light strip again, this would be reused and if not then hole would be filled with a full 1/2" plug (no U-shape cut out).

                • 1 3/4" door frame with coved handle

              • (1) Walnut (S&D) - SOLD
                • Glass broke into the case during shipping causing several scratches, dents, or small gouges

                • No door, so we will have to make a new (+$100) or attach a different wood species that may have some S&D and therefore was removed.  Examples include Flame Maple, Birch, or Painted Black
                • No structural issues

                • $650

                • We pulled this into second hand inventory because the cherry wood had some darker tones and different patterns than normal.  The wood has also darkened further to a deep red, as all cherry does, from the time on the shelf. 

                • $850

              7" Depth Triangle ClimaCase or ClimaStand
              • (1) Flame Maple (OS, Minor S&D) - SOLD
                • Beautiful figure, hard curly maple exhibits tighter, 3D flames than its soft curly maple relative

                • 2" door frame with AR logo on outside

                • Had been previously mounted to a base, so there are holes on the outside of the bottom piece from the screws used to attach base

                • String Swing T-nuts were replaced with new brass inserts.  Small holes around the hole on the back of the case from the prior T-nuts

                • Very small crack in the lower left corner on the inside of the case.  Crack does not extend all the way through the 3/4" back to the outside, meaning the air tightness has not been compromised and it's purely cosmetic

                • $825

              • (1) Walnut (OS, S&D) - SOLD
                • Damaged by some impact during shipping, likely by the fork on a fork lift

                • Impact occurred on the back of case and splayed the case on the inside slightly, with about a 1 3/4" diameter splay

                • Once the instrument is placed into the case, the damages would be mostly concealed by the neck of the instrument when looking at the case from straight on

                • Minor lacquer scratches that don't go through to the wood surface

                • 2" door frame instead of new 1 3/4"

                • Some scratches and gouges from glass breaking inside

                • Beautiful case and with some stain wiped on the inside over the defects, making it almost unnoticeable
