GFI Musical Products Availability
  • GFI pedal steel guitars are distributed and sold through our Dealer network and directly from the factory.

  • GFI parts, merchandise, and accessories are sold directly from the factory.

  • Pedal steel guitars are built on an as ordered basis; the factory does not currently stock any pre-made instruments.

  • Lead time on new instrument orders will depend on a variety of factors like the number of previous orders being filled, parts availability, etc.

  • We had an unusually large number of orders during the pandemic which caused a bit of a traffic jam in our production.  This continues to affect our lead times and makes estimating shipping times difficult.   Our best guess on instrument lead times is probably about 5-7 months, subject to change.  We appreciate your patience and please know we are doing all we can to get everyone's order out as quickly as possible.

  • The GFI factory is unable to take any trade-ins toward the purchase of a new instrument, though most of our Dealers are able to.
