It’s been another awesome year for Guitar Crate. We are closing in on 3 full years of shipping Guitar Crate to folks out there in the world and we’re constantly working on ways to improve the service and change things up. With that being said, I wanted to recap a few highlights from the past year.
Last year, we revamped the site to try and offer a more robust service. So far it’s going really well! The one thing that clearly needs improvement is the preference changes in subscribers’ My Account pages. The marketplace we are using for the store (Woocommerce) uses a method called subscription “switching” which looks like a totally new purchase process, but it’s actually not. It’s a submission of the preferences you want to change your subscription to. We are working on making this process easier because we know how important getting the right strings and gear is to everyone and just as a reminder, you can always contact us to make any subscription changes.
Some other really cool things that happened this year are that we joined the Guitar and Accessories Marketing Association (GAMA) and you can see more about them here: https://www.discoverguitar.com/member-list/ We also became accredited by the Better Business Bureau and you can see this listing here: https://www.bbb.org/us/ct/new-milford/profile/subscription-boxes/guitar-crate-llc-0111-87133683 For businesses on the internet, and especially small companies like ours that are fairly new and unheard of, it’s difficult to earn shoppers’ trust and so we have looked for ways to show everyone that we are definitely real and we stand behind our product 100%. We are here to stay and won’t be disappearing from the internet and of course if you ever have any questions, just reach out to us!
You have probably seen us on Facebook and Instagram, or you might have seen us featured on Know Your Gear with Phillip McKnight or on Marty Music. We are connecting with a lot of cool folks and are also seeking out others that are interested in helping us get our name out there.

Guitar Crate is also offering subscriptions and unique products on other marketplaces like Etsy, Cratejoy, and Amazon. As an internet business, we know that people might want to shop from the places they are most comfortable or familiar with so we wanted to reach those folks also. You can see our other shops below.

There’s lots more in the works, but as you know we love to keep things mysterious so we can’t reveal too much just yet. Just know that we are going strong and looking forward to bringing more greatness to all the guitar players of the world. Rock on!
