FAQ

*If your question isn’t answered in the following, we’d be happy to help you. Just call 608-785-7704, email or come visit us for your answer!

What credit cards do you accept?

We accept all four major credit cards: Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Discover. We will also accept credit card payments through PayPal online.

Why do you require having the same billing and shipping address for credit card transactions?

It’s for protection. We have had a couple of unfortunate dealings with credit card fraud (when someone calls in with a stolen card and has it shipped to an address different to that on the card). When that happens, everybody loses. So to avoid that, we just require that the address you want your product shipped to is registered on the card. It’s a case where one bad guy makes it hard on the rest of us, but this is to keep all the deals safe.

Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes.

Do you do layaways?

Yes, we do have a layaway option. We do require a deposit of 20% of the item’s selling price. We will then hold that item for you for a period of 90 days. The 48 hour approval period will not apply to any item on a layaway purchase. In the event of a “failed layaway”, any and all deposits that were paid are non-refundable and they are also not transferable for the purchase of another item. Please inquire if you have specific questions about this policy.

Do you offer appraisals? How much are they?

Yes, we can appraise a guitar for you over the phone, by way of email or in-store. We can either give you an approximation or a written professional appraisal. The costs on all appraisals are free!

 

Do you carry drum sets, keyboards, or other non-stringed instruments?

What is your return policy?
