If You Are Purchasing

Once agreement to purchase a piece is reached, an invoice for the amount owing will be issued, and once payment is received, the guitar will be professionally packed and shipped using your preferred carrier and insurance conditions. We will organise shipping insurance in case of theft or damage.

A 24 hour acceptance period after the piece is delivered will be available. We will contact you after the piece is delivered to make certain that you are completely happy with your purchase.

If the piece is returned in exactly the same condition as it left, then a refund or store-credit of the same value of the piece will be made available. The purchaser pays the initial and return shipping cost during this process.

Photography of the internal components of each piece can be made at varying stages and will be provided to the purchaser after the sale has been finalised.
