Purchase Policy

Please Note: Our normal office hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday. We are closed Saturday and Sunday. Weekend orders are processed in a timely manner beginning Monday morning.

Payment Methods: Our webstore accepts all major credit cards and PayPal. Payments can also be made with cashier's checks, personal checks, money orders or wire transfers - please contact us for details.

Shipments to PO Boxes or International Destinations: Many items cannot be shipped to PO boxes - please contact us for details. If the order is destined for Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, APO/FPO bases and countries outside the continental U.S., GSI will contact the customer to confirm shipping charges and applicable special payment requirements. If you are an international customer, you may be required to pay via wire transfer or international money order before the items are released. All applicable duties and taxes are the responsibility of the customer.

48 Hour Approval Policy: GSI will gladly send a guitar anywhere in the world for trial and approval. Our approval period is 48 hours from the time the instrument is received. It must be pre-paid by cashier's check, money order or any major credit card. If a return is requested within 48 hours of the guitar's arrival, a full refund will be issued (less shipping charges and assuming original condition), or another guitar can be sent on trial. In-store and eBay purchases do not qualify for the 48-hour approval period.

ExchangePlus: Any guitar purchased from GSI is eligible for a one-time exchange, under either policy below. Limited to one exchange per initial purchase.

30-Day Guitar Exchange: Within 30 days from the date of purchase, GSI will exchange any guitar toward the purchase of any other instrument of equal or greater value. Providing the instrument is returned in original condition, the full purchase price will be credited.

2-Year Guitar Exchange: Within two years from the date of purchase, GSI will exchange any guitar toward the purchase of any other instrument of equal or greater value. Providing the instrument is returned in original condition (less normal wear), 70% of the purchase price excluding tax will be credited.

Please note that guitars originally purchased through a trade-in deal (or any method that does not involve payment of the full purchase price) may not be eligible for the 2-year exchange policy.

Used or "vintage" guitars are sold "as is." We recommend that the buyer or buyer's advisor inspect the instrument before purchasing to assess its condition, value, and authenticity. Although we have inspected each instrument, and believe its description to be accurate, neither GSI nor its employees, agents or contractors provide any warranties or guarantees, either express or implied.

Accessory Exchange: Exchanges (store credit only) on unopened accessory items are allowed within 30 days from the date of purchase.

Product Returns: Before any items may be returned, a Return Authorization must be obtained by contacting GSI. Items returned without proper Return Authorization will be refused by GSI. Returned merchandise is the responsibility of the buyer until received and inspected by GSI.
