Terms

A deposit of $1500 (US) is required on all orders to secure a place in the building schedule. This deposit is refundable at the discretion of Eichelbaum Guitars minus a processing fee of $750. If the order is canceled after construction has begun (including acquiring and processing materials) then the entire deposit will be forfeited. Guitars ordered with certain wood options such as Brazilian Rosewood and/or custom details or inlays may require a larger deposit and be subject to exception any refund or the standard 3-day acceptance period. For example, if you commission me to build a guitar with three necks then I might have a tough time taking that back and reselling it.

Once your order is placed you may change any of the actual specifications or details, including the model, until approximately three months prior to the start of construction. Exceptions would include situations where special request woods may have already been obtained on behalf of the customer or where custom inlays have already been completed.

All Guitars are shipped via Fed Ex Overnight Service at the expense of the purchaser unless other arrangements are made in advance. Overnight service is the best way to avoid shipping damages.

 

Warranty Information

Each guitar is warranted to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the guitar is owned and I am actively building. Not included are: normal fret/fingerboard wear, finish damage from moisture (including perspiration) or general damage caused by improper climate conditions including, but not limited to, cracks & finish checking, exposed fret ends, swollen or sunken tops, and other damage which is the result of improper care. The Warranty is not transferable in the course of resale unless other arrangements are made in advance through Eichelbaum Guitars. Shipping charges are not usually covered in the event a guitar is returned for Warranty work. If you have a concern which you feel may be covered please call to discuss the best course of action.

 

Warranty/Restoration Work on Other Instruments

I continue to maintain my certification to perform Warranty Repairs on Martin instruments. Please note that I try to limit the work I take in to larger jobs such as neck resets and major reconstruction or restoration. I am accepting jobs only on vintage Martin, Gibson, and Fender instruments. Please consult a local store for general setup work and basic repairs.
