48-Hour Approval Period

Most stringed instruments will have a *48-hour Approval Period that begins after you receive your shipment. This way you will be able to experience the instrument in the comforts of your own home to ensure that it is a good fit.

We will only allow an instrument to be returned to our store with a return authorization number, this is not an open-ended policy and will be handled on a per-case basis. We will refuse any unauthorized returns or unknown shipments to our store.

There will be a 10% restocking fee on all returns that are paid with PayPal or credit cards. This fee is not a profit to the store but covers any fees that we may incur to process your order. In the event that an item is returned, the customer is also responsible for all shipping charges. If you are to pay with a check, bank wire, or money order you will be held responsible for the shipment cost and there will be a 5% restocking fee. If the item is purchased in-house, a 48-Hour Approval period is not applicable.  Within the 48-hour approval period, items also qualify for an exchange for another item of equal value or more.  Exchange items do not qualify for discount. Items purchased through our Reverb store are only eligible to exchange for another item of equal value or more. All items that are returned must be shipped to us the same way it was shipped out to you. You must use the same packing materials, exact same shipping service, and purchase approximate insurance. We will not be held responsible for items that are damaged in return shipping.

Amplifiers, accessories, effects pedals, Sealed/Limited Edition, pre-owned, “open box,” demo and clearance items are not applicable for an approval period for a refund. In the event that you are unhappy with a purchase of this variety, an exchange may be applicable. The customer will be responsible for all shipping charges. Please see a salesman with any questions regarding this prior to completing your purchase.

In the extremely rare event that you receive an item that has been damaged in shipping, please do not refuse the package, but contact us immediately after your delivery and we will begin the claim process.
