Shipping - Our Philosophy

We are extremely proud of our world-class packaging. With over 30 years of experience in shipping premium musical instruments, you can rest assured that your purchase will arrive safely and securely.

Although "vintage" headless instruments are universally regarded as some of the most durable and structurally robust instruments ever manufactured, it still takes time, care and experience to properly package them for safe transport.

We "over-pack" our shipments to ensure safe transit, and of course all of our instrument shipments are fully insured with the carriers.

We normally use UPS as our primary shipper and have had positive results using them for many years. Of course, if you prefer another carrier, this can be usually be arranged. Please call the Headless Hotline for more info.
We typically find that guitar or bass shipments within the 48 US States average between $50 and $75 including insurance. We do not "mark-up" our shipping costs with any type of "handling fees". You pay only for the actual cost of shipping.

If you need more "instant gratification", we will be happy to research costs for 2-day or overnite air service. We strive to establish long-term relationships with our clients and it shows. Again, feel free to phone or e-mail us with ANY questions or concerns.

We "normally" use UPS ground service which reaches almost anywhere in the contiguous 48 US states within 5 business days.

If you need an accurate shipping quote, please contact us and we will be happy to research the costs for you.
