GRGuitars.com Website Policy for 2016: If you need to return something, please contact us first for authorization. Because we are liquidating most of our stock in a pre-retirement sale, most items are not returnable. There is a 20% restocking fee on returns, this also applies to any cancelled order than has been processed, whether shipped or not. There is a 5% restocking fee on exchanges to cover handling costs. No returns on books, tapes, CDs, DVDs clearance/closeouts or electronics, including wired pickguard assembly.
Here is what you need to do:

Item(s) must be unaltered, in the original packaging and include a copy of the invoice. Standard First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation is an easy way to return small parts. The envelope the parts came in can be reused in most cases by crossing out your address, removing the postage label and turning it over for addressing. If the item is defective please include that information. If the value of the return is over $50 please insure it. Save your return mailing receipt in case of loss by the shipping/mailing company. If you drill holes in necks or bodies or alter them in any way there will be a minimum 25% restocking fee. You will be charged accordingly for missing, broken, or substituted components of the returned parts. You will not be credited for the return until we receive it.

*Return Exceptions: If you are ordering a one-of-a-kind custom made item it may not be returnable unless defective. You will be notified of this fact before we accept the order. Return of Custom Ordered lacquer finished bodies will incur a minimum 25% restocking fee.

In the unlikely event that your package arrives with the box damaged please check it carefully and notify us right away if there is a problem. Save the original packaging! Do not send it back to us without notifying us first. If it was sent via UPS we will call them and ask that they pick it up from you. They will take it to their damage assessment center and contact us.

About vintage style finishes: Lacquer finishes, whether they are new or 30 years old should not be exposed to plastic products, vinyl (don't lay it on top of a guitar bag or on a car seat), bug spray or extremes of hot and cold. We ship our finished bodies or complete guitars without the use of Styrofoam, bubble wrap or "cookies" whenever possible. Bubble wrap is extremely harmful to lacquer finishes! It doesn't even have to touch a finish to harm it. If your metal guitar stand uses non-surgical (plastic) tubing on areas that touch the guitar body or neck, cover the plastic parts with a scrap of old T-shirt or toweling or a stand "bra" (we carry these). Do not leave any guitar in a hot car in the summer or in an unheated garage in the winter. Extreme changes of temperature are hard on any guitar, regardless of brand name, age or finish type.

About Pickguards: Please do not remove the protective plastic coating until you are sure the pickguard fits your guitar. Altered pickguards cannot be returned. Don't use guitar polish, water or other liquids on aged plastic or hardware. Guitar polish should be sprayed on the cloth, not directly on the guitar. Aged plastics will acquire gray smudges if hands are dirty, sweaty or wet. We recommend having clean, dry hands when installing your pickguard, pickup covers & knobs or doing any work on the guitar.

Guitar assembly and replacement parts: "Trial Fit" neck to body and all other parts in their proper places before drilling holes, painting or doing final assembly. This is very important and not a waste of time! Neck fit can vary due to wood expansion and contraction, years of use, paint build up, manufacturing machine tolerance, etc. To prevent damage to your instrument, don't over-torque mounting screws, always use hand tools. Power or battery operated tools are not recommended.

Here's an example of what's not covered by warranty, unless the shipping company did it during transit. No, it wasn't an accident, just a momentary lapse in judgement.
