#1 All instruments that require domestic or international shipping will always be covered for the full value of the shipment. Any damage that occurs during shipping will be covered by the relevant insurance policy. Obviously we are unable to control how your guitar is treated whilst in transit, but we will do our best to ensure it arrives safely. Touch wood, there has been only one minor incident in ten years.
#2 We take great pride in our workmanship and products. It's unfair to discover social media posts regarding a product prior to you contacting us. Thankfully this has never happened, and we hope this continues to allow us to provide the absolute best service possible.
