Guitars can experience changes due to temperature and humidity differences during shipping that may require minor adjustments. In addition, I can not predict how you would like your instrument set up. If you can not make these adjustments yourself you should expect to incur the costs associated with having them done by a professional.
Please note that I sell predominantly pre-owned guitars. These are not personal instruments so, although they are inspected and tested, it is possible that I might miss a small nick or ding or, in the case of older guitar there may be just to many blems to photograph all of them. I will not be responsible for any shipping charges because you want to send the guitar back because you found a nick or ding that I did not describe or show in a photo.
