The deposit becomes nonrefundable when the build begins or when I have purchased special materials, such as a particular wood set or tuners.  I accept payment only through PayPal. Insurance is required for all shipments unless the buyer accepts full risk of loss. Shipments outside the US will be via US Postal Service. Cost of goods will always be truthfully stated on customs forms.

*Wood that I usually stock for fretboard and bridge include African ebony, Macassar ebony, Borneo ebony, ziricote, maple, bocote, cocobolo, East Indian rosewood and Bolivian rosewood (pau ferro). Some of these may incur an up-charge. Other woods may also be available or can be sought out.
