ORDERS

Ordering an instrument requires first an $800 non-refundable deposit is required to place your order in my building que.    Please contact me for current wait time. This deposit is applied towards consultation, materials, and total build amount.  When I am ready to start work, we will engage in a series of discussions to decide on all of the details and specifications of your instrument.

We will discuss all of your instruments particulars before any design decisions are completed and a final price is determined.

When your instruments specifications are agreed upon, I will send you a quote detailing what we have discussed.

Upon approval of the quote, an invoice will be sent to you for your approval.

 

All payments are in US currency. Paypal payments will be charged an additional 3% transaction fee.

 

Once I am ready to start the build, 50% of the remaining balance is due prior to beginning construction of the instrument, and the balance is due upon completion and prior to shipment of your instrument.

 

Shipping

All transportation fees, shipping fees, duties, and insurance fees are responsibility of the client, and are paid for by the client prior to shipment of the completed instrument.

 

Ordering

Please contact me for current wait time. This schedule fluctuates with the number of orders in the building schedule.

Highly customized instruments are subject to longer build times. If a delay is anticipated, I will notify you promptly.

 

Warranty

My instruments have a limited lifetime warranty to the original owner as long as I am in business as a luthier. 

This warranty does not cover damages due to extremes of temperature or humidity, alterations or modifications, neglect, accidents or improper handling or misuse, natural disaster, or normal wear and tear.

Repairs or alterations performed by anyone but me risk cancellation of the warranty.

The cost of roundtrip shipping for warranty work is the responsibility of the owner.

 

We can design you a personalized instrument in association to fulfill your desires, and I would be very happy to speak with you about your next instrument.  Every instrument I make is one of a kind.
