SECTION 5 - DESCRIPTION OF GOODS AND PRICING
All our prices are shown in Pounds Sterling (GBP). Prices, descriptions and shipping charges are regularly reviewed and we endeavour to ensure all information provided on our website is consistently correct. Should an error, or omission, be noted on our website, Fraser Guitars will notify you of this immediately. In the event that a value is incorrectly displayed, Fraser Guitars will offer either the product/service at the correct price, or a full refund. We are under no obligation to honour an incorrect price.
Import taxes, customs charges or administration fees payable on orders made outside of the United Kingdom are the responsibility of the customer and are not included in the cost of your item or any shipping fee. Please check the requirements of your country prior to making a purchase.
“In Stock” refers to products which are currently stocked and available for purchase. When purchasing a guitar which is referred to as "In Stock", the guitar pictured in the images of the product listing is the exact guitar you will receive. Any "In Stock" item will generally be shipped within 2 working days of payment clearing.
“Made to Order” refers to products which are available to order only. “Made to Order” means items, including guitars, guitar cases, etc. are made on receipt of purchase and are therefore not immediately available. Product images shown in the product listings for “Made to Order” guitars are for illustrative purposes only and show the “best likeness” to the item you will receive.
Currently, all “Made to Order” products have a varied lead time. Lead time, meaning the time it takes to produce your order. Lead times are available via our Website banner at the time of purchase. You will receive an email confirming the anticipated lead time for your project on receipt of your order. Completion time may be subject to change in peak times. If a change to your completion date is expected, you will be notified as soon as possible and a notice will be placed on the Website with amended, anticipated completion times. If you are not prepared to wait, a full refund will be given. We do not, at any time, offer partial refunds.
When purchasing "Made to Order" guitars, the item you will receive will be made to the specifications of the product information, and with paintwork in the "best likeness" of the images provided for reference.
Each guitar available is designed and individually made by Fraser Guitars. As each guitar is hand-painted and handmade, no two guitars are the same. Each guitar is a work of art and is as individual and unique as the customer. Great care is taken to ensure each guitar is made to the highest of standards and quality.
Photographs of your completed guitar will be provided for your approval prior to shipping. If you are not happy with the artwork/paintwork/ageing/relicing/lighting of the product in the photographs provided, you will be issued a full refund.
Updates regarding the progress of your order will be provided on completion of your order. Please avoid repeatedly contacting us for updates, this inevitably delays the build process and will not result in your order being completed any faster.
“Custom Orders” refer to any product which is made to the customers specifications. This includes any tweaks or amendments to our standard range of guitars together with any "individual" design.
By "Custom Order", we refer to any specific request/s, e.g. ageing to preference, colour not available as part of our standard range, alternative pickups, no decal, alternative neck specifications. In short, if the product you are looking for is not "In Stock" or "Made to Order", it is a "Custom Order".
Custom Orders will be considered on an individual basis. Completion time for Custom Orders varies depending on your specifications and may take between 4-10 weeks to complete. We will advise regarding individual lead times on confirmation of your order. Customer Orders are non-refundable (not withstanding your Statutory Rights). All enquiries regarding Custom Orders can be made to email@example.com
All our guitars: "In Stock", "Made to Order", and "Custom Order", are fully set up prior to shipping however, the strings may be loosened when packaged.
All our guitars undergo stringent quality control at every stage of the build process. We ensure the neck is straight, the frets are level, rolled and polished, the action is low, and the intonation is on.
We advise making no alterations to the set up for 48 hours following receipt (primarily to allow the guitar to acclimatise following fluctuations in temperature during shipping).
As with all new guitars, Frasers will settle in the weeks/months following receipt and may require a further set up, or setting up to accommodate your preferences.
Fraser Guitars is a family run business and we endeavour to provide a personal service unique to each customer’s requirements. However, the business hours we operate extend from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday. Should you make an enquiry regarding your order outside of these hours, please be prepared to wait for a response. Any contact outside these hours is at the discretion of Fraser Guitars.

“Buy it now” applies to both “In stock” products and those “Made to Order”. “In Stock” items will usually be despatched within 48 hours of payment clearance.

Custom Orders – The right to return goods does not apply to any order which has been specified or commissioned to the customer’s specifications. This is inclusive of any item which is not typically stocked by Fraser Guitars and has been ordered/custom made at the request of the customer. Return in these instances will be subject to the discretion of Fraser Guitars (with any costs incurred, including administrative costs, to be deducted from any refund made available).
Cancellation of contract, and subsequent return of goods where applicable, will ensure the account (from which payment was received) is credited with a full refund for the goods. Refunds are typically processed the same day, prior to the dispatch of goods, or on the day of receipt of returned goods. If the goods are not provided, or return delivery costs not covered, this will be deducted from the direct cost of recovering the goods from the amount to be refunded.
