On Line Purchase Return Policy:
We offer a 24 hour evaluation period for guitars, ukuleles and mandolins purchased online. An extra 24 hours will be granted on all instruments during the winter season to allow the contents of the shipping container to reach room temperature before opening. (It is very important that this step be followed. Many bad things can happen to an instrument if not allowed to come to room temperature slowly) After payment in full, and, during the evaluation period, if you are not completely satisfied with the instrument, it can be returned (fully insured) via UPS Ground.
If your purchase is not what you had hoped you must notify us within the approval period by email and receive a return authorization number from the store. Any guitar, ukulele or mandolin return must be authorized by the store. When returning the instrument it must be insured for the full amount of the purchase, no exceptions. If the guitar is not insured it will be refused. In the event of damage during return shipping we cannot refund your payment, and you will need to file a claim with your shipper.
Instruments returned within the 24-hour approval period are refunded in full, MINUS shipping charges (both ways) and credit card fees. Please allow 7 to 10 business days to process your return. We process the return as soon as we receive the instrument, inspect it and determine its status. Unfortunately your credit card issuer has up to 10 days to credit your account for the refund. Please refer to your credit card terms of service agreement for their actual policy. How quickly your bank issues you the credit is totally out of our control.
