SHIPPING

We put a strong emphasis on fantastic shipping practices. After learning from shipping thousands of guitars, we have come up with a few shipping rules:

  1. We only ship instruments and amps with FedEx or UPS.
  2. All shipments (besides inexpensive accessories) are shipped with a signature required, no exceptions.  
  3. Instruments are packed so there is no movement in the outer box, and/or inside the case (this is the key!).
  4. Plenty of tape!
  5. Always have shipments on the truck the same (by 2pm ET) or next day.

You will receive a tracking number as soon as your order ships. Please note: Tracking numbers usually take 24 hours before they appear in FedEx/UPS/USPS systems.  All delivery changes (hold for pickup, address change, etc.) must be requested before your purchase leaves our store, otherwise, they are the responsibility of the customer.

RETURNS

Due to a change in refund policy by our payment processors and PayPal, we must update our return policy to include a 3-10% restocking fee in some cases (see item 4 and 8).

  1. We ALWAYS stand behind our products. Call us with ANY issues - we want to help you! If an item is damaged in shipping or the wrong item is shipped, we will always accept a return at $0 cost to you (we will cover return shipping, and charge no restocking fee no matter the payment method, etc) AND/OR offer a partial refund to fully cover the issue. We need to be notified of shipping damage or issues with the item within 48 hours of item receipt in order to process your request in a timely manner. 
  2. All new AND used items are fully inspected, setup, and maintained for full 100% playability and electronic functionality by our in-house tech when they ship. If your guitar starts buzzing after a couple weeks, CALL US, we can talk you through a quick adjustment of the truss rod due to a change in climate after it leaves our humidified facility. 
  3. All items are fully insured in shipping, worldwide. Although issues do happen, we put a strong emphasis on fantastic shipping practices to make sure your new instrument gets to you safe and sound anytime you order from Ish Guitars.  If your item is damaged in shipping, please contact us so we can assist.  If you choose an expedited shipping option and the item does not get to you in the designated timeframe, we will do our best to refund you the cost as long as the shipping provider allows for a refund - (they will deny a service refund for any items that have a large package surcharge - usually applies to most acoustic guitars and basses.)
  4. You can return an item for any reason (simply just don‚Äôt like it, etc) 5 days from receipt of the item. This does not apply to international orders nor to instruments with custom modifications completed by our tech team per the customer's request (pickup change, strap button install, etc.) You will need to pay the return shipping cost and actual outgoing shipping cost (even if ‚Äúfree shipping‚ÄĚ is offered). A 3% restocking fee applies ONLY if paid by credit card in our showroom, over the phone, on IshGuitars.com, or with PayPal on any platform. A 5% restocking fee applies with Klarna orders and a 10% restocking fee applies with Affirm orders.¬† You will NOT be charged a restocking fee if paid with cash, check, or bank wire. The restocking fee is only to cover our credit card processing fees which our processor does not refund to us in the case of a return, even if the order is canceled the same day. If an item is not returned in the condition which it was sent due to personal use, we will charge a restocking fee according to the amount of blemishes, as determined by Ish Guitars staff.
  5. Please use all original packaging materials to return an item. Before shipping your return, please conduct a 'shake test' to make sure there is no movement of the instrument or case inside the box. If an item is not returned in the condition in which it was originally sent due to shipping damage from inadequate packaging, we will charge an additional restocking fee according to the amount of blemishes as determined by Ish Guitars staff. 
  6. Store credit or exchange credit can be redeemed 1 time towards a new item purchase, making that item a final sale.
  7. All returns MUST receive an RMA number (contact us at team@ish.guitars or 315-447-3243) to be returned. If you ship an item back to us and do not get an RMA number prior, we will charge an additional 10% restocking fee for any return. Returns will be processed and a refund issued within 3 business days of us receiving the instrument at our warehouse. This is to allow time for the guitar to acclimate to room temperature as well as to be re-inspected by our tech team. 
  8. Order cancellations which have not yet shipped are still subject to all of the same restocking fees as outlined in line item 4.  Again, this is only to cover processing fees that do not get refunded to us by our payment processors.
  9. We do not offer an additional warranty outside of the 5 day return period, but we are happy to help you work with the manufacturer or your local tech to solve any issues. Call us! Used items do not carry a warranty of materials or workmanship since they are second hand.
  10. All trades are final, we cannot reverse a trade.

        Updating the listing 8/18/18 as many people have been asking for specifics:

        This guitar is a very unique piece. It is being offered on consignment by us on behalf of a lady who's father gave it to her as a gift in the 1960's... even though she didn't play guitar. She learned on it a small amount, and then stored it for the last 50 years, waiting for the next owner to pass it on to.... you! 

        She said she did not do the art on the case and could not remember the exact year her father gave it to her, so I assume her father bought it gently used as she knew it was definitely in the 1960's. So you will only be the 3rd owner!

        Heres the deal with the guitar:

        1. Original everything. Theres not a single unoriginal piece. Remember, its been stored for 90% of its life, and it seems like it was stored in a climate controlled area as there are no cracks or major deflections in the top or back. It is in EXCELLENT physical condition for its age!

        2. Remember that since its been stored it also hasn't gotten a lot of attention. I would recommend that you have your local tech go through the guitar AFTER you receive it and let it settle for a week - if we do it here it will not be setup to your climate. 

        3. The action is "good". I would not say its "perfect". The neck is "pretty straight" but I wouldn't say its "perfect". I'm betting 90% of you would not want to do anything to this guitar, BUT I would rather over describe than under describe as you cannot see the guitar in person - to have "perfect" action, this guitar will need a neck reset or other neck adjustments, considering it does not have a truss rod.

        4. The bridge is lifting very slightly. Again I don't believe the guitar has been dried out specifically, it just hasn't had any attention in 50 years. Its like pulling a guitar out of a heated garage after 50 years... The car isn't in bad condition, but its still going to need basic attention (tires, oil change, fluids checked) before putting it back on the road.

        5. Interestingly, the pickguard and binding is tortise (it's usually black). It very much appears to be factory, so I believe this must have been a unique guitar to come off the line. 

        Conclusion:

        Please do not make us an offer on this guitar, it is priced accordingly and you guys all know this is a good price and a great opportunity to own a guitar thats VERY tough to find in this condition. The price is very reasonable.

        Because its an old acoustic and because its on consignment with us, the guitar will be sold as-is with no returns (unless the guitar is broken in shipping or something is completely un-described or totally wrong... we are reasonable and happy to help). Please understand we are professionally photographing and going into great detail to describe the guitar BEFORE you buy it so that you can make an educated decision and know what you are buying. :)

        Message us if you have any questions! You should buy this guitar. Its a time capsule from 1964!
