Because of the delicate nature of electronics and the possibility of parts swapping, all electric guitars are sold as is. I am not one of those people who makes it a habit of dissecting their guitars and photographing their guts: Only in a rare occasion, if the guitar merits it. Acoustic guitars (with the exception of items with the words “as is” in their descriptions, discounted items or guitars that have had work done on them or have damage) are returnable for credit minus PP&I and restocking fee.. Terms of return for acoustic guitars: Acoustic guitars may be returned for immediate credit towards another guitar of higher price (25%+, excluding marked down prices) plus postage and packing fees (all returns subject to a 15% restocking fee.) PP&I fees are not refundable and guitar must be posted back within 24 business day hours and must be received in the same packaging and in the same condition as sent. Lay-a-way available on higher priced: 50% deposit of total immediately down and balance paid within 30 days or deposit forfeited. No returns on lay-a-ways. Accessories, cases, parts, amps, etc. are non returnable. Seller is not responsible, nor liable for any errors or omissions in listings. It is buyer's responsibility to study photos and ask questions before purchase. By purchasing you are agreeing to these terms.
