USED/VINTAGE GEAR: We want to be HONEST here---- Used and Vintage gear is, by definition, old and fragile. This gear is subject to age and handling wear.  Scuffs and scrapes, dents and dings, repairs, modifications and replacements all are to be expected.  So, while Guitar Showcase strives to accurately document and describe each piece we list, we can only accept responsibility for what we detail in the listing and what is visible in the photos.  Guitar Showcase is eager to verify any additional details necessary to address any concerns you may have: just make sure to contact us with any questions you may have before bidding or buying.  Beyond this, Guitar Showcase can offer no guarantee and can accept no returns on Used or Vintage gear. Please be sure you know what you are buying, and please do not think that older, used and Vintage Instruments should be set up in perfect playing condition. For high priced Vintage instruments, we highly recommend that you either have a local friend try the Instrument or come in and try it in person. CONSIGNED GEAR: Some of the gear in the Guitar Showcase eBay store is listed on behalf of a consignor.  These pieces are not the property of Guitar Showcase and as such we can accept no returns on any consigned equipment.  Consigned gear is also subject to the same stipulations as Used and Vintage gear, as described above.  Please make sure to contact us with any questions you may have before bidding on or buying any consignment item.   INTERNATIONAL SALES: Some listed items that contain Rosewood and other protected species may be ineligible for international sale; please make sure to read listing details carefully. For eligible sales, Guitar Showcase is happy to offer international shipping through USPS to select countries, with calculated shipping cost based on location.  Please contact us PRIOR to purchase for an exact shipping quote to your country.  Due to additional expense and complication, we are unable to accept returns on any international sales and all payments must be pre-arranged, please contact us for details. CAUTION, SEE BELOW!   Beginning Jan.2, 2017, CITES documentation is required for import and re-export of many newly listed wood species (including all Rosewoods, not just Brazilian) and items made from them (like Guitars and their parts). These new rules will not allow the import or export of most Vintage Guitars and many newer Guitars and other instruments.  We are not able to furnish the required permits at this time, and in the foreseeable future.  You may be able to carry a personally owned Instrument across your border, but we cannot guarantee this, nor be responsible for the consequences and you are advised to check with your Country’s authorities before attempting to do so. The Instruments may be confiscated by Customs or Border Authorities!   For more information, see:   California Proposition 65 WARNINGS:   California's Proposition 65 requires special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels.
