GuitarPaintGuys is a small studio located in the heart of the Midwest!
We specialize in finishing and refinishing guitars of all types. Abstract Art, and Custom "One Off" Finishes!
Our Mission is to provide quality finishing and refinishing services, at prices FAR LOWER than our competition.
We are confident that we have THE BEST / LOWEST "Every Day" Price available on the Internet!
If you find better "every day" prices, kindly drop us a line! We take this part pretty serious!
Terms and Conditions:
GuitarPaintGuys is very easy to work with! We describe every item we sell as accurately as possible, and include detailed photos of the
actual items for sale. Buyers are encouraged to ask all questions prior to purchase!
All quoted prices are good for a period of 30 days from the date of quote.
About our finishes:
We primarily use high end Urethane Finishes. These finishes are much thinner than the modern polyester finishes used by manufacturers
today. This type of finish is durable, easy to care for, and has an exceptional gloss.
Please note that we are producing functional art, not flawless top coats. We color sand the final clear coat by hand with extremely fine
abrasives, and then polish the finish to a smooth, high gloss. Doing this by hand does allow some of the human and natural imperfections
to appear in the clear coat, however, this also allows a greater level of detail and a higher gloss finish. We feel that the benefits far out
weigh the drawbacks.
**Decals : For Legal Reasons, we WILL NOT apply ANY unauthorized manufacturer decal.
**Color Selection is the responsibility of the individual customer!
* No refunds or refinishes will be honored in the case of "buyers remorse."
How long does it take? - Turn Around Time:
Finishing is a complex process that does take time!
There is no such thing as "rushing"when it comes to finish work. It is a slow and tedious process that can be effected by weather
conditions like high humidity in the summer months, and freezing temperatures in the winter months.
Additionally, the volume of workload in our studio at a given time can also effect the overall turn around time.
Normally, most standard finishes are ready to go within 10-18 business days, if everything goes perfect!
Things that take a little more time include - binding, metal flake, repairs, custom finishes, & guitar bodies that arrive in poor condition.
The turn around time quoted reflects actual time in our studio - not including shipping time. It also is only an approximate estimate. Our
studio is fully climate controlled, however, weather conditions such as sub-zero temperatures in the winter months, and very humid
conditions in the summer months, can effect overall turn around time. No refunds will be given in the event that your order is delayed or
finished early. We are continually investing in new technology that is designed to provide faster turn around times, and have successfully
been able to reduce our turn around time for most projects for the past 8 years in a row. Should there be any deviation from our quoted
turn around time, we will do our best to let our customers know in advance.
Current turn around times are listed on each finish order page, as well as at the bottom of every e-mail we send!
We simply want your finish to be properly complete before shipping!
We typically do finish most orders ahead of our quoted times.
We accept most Debit and Credit Cards through PayPal.
Cash Payments are accepted for our local customers..
No item or order will ship without cleared payment!
In order to keep our prices low, and because all of our work is custom, one of a kind, and specific, we can not offer a traditional returns
policy. All sales are final unless otherwise specified by GuitarPaintGuys in writing.
We do stand behind our work! If there is a problem with your custom finish, just contact us within 7 days of receiving your order, and
provided there is a case for your dis-satisfaction, we would be happy to discuss a repair!
Any modifications to the instrument void this guarantee.
Sale Priced, Specials, Used, 2nd's, Discontinued or Closeout items are always sold "as is" and on an All Sales Final Basis.

will do our best to accommodate. Depending upon how far along your order is, changes may not always be possible.
Completely changing the paint job as a whole is not possible once the order is in progress.
Custom Orders are sold at a quoted price plus actual return shipping at current USPS and UPS Ground Rates.

and the custom finish can not be completed, the customer will be responsible for return shipping charges of their guitar body.
We ship standard insured ground primarily.

It is very unfortunate that we now have to make this kind of policy!
Any items sent to us for finishing that are not paid for in thirty (30) days from the completion date will be subject to a $10.00 per month
storage charge. Storage fees will be billed on the 31st day from finish completion. Any such items not paid for within 3 (three) months of
the finish completion date, , will be considered "abandoned" and will be liquidated and GuitarPaintGuys, its owners, and employees, shall be
fully released from any and all legal or civil liabilities related to such items.
We are not a storage facility. Your local Yellow Pages can assist you in that area.
We are a small studio, and simply do not have the room!
Again, we feel that it is extremely unfortunate that this kind of policy has to be in place.

We will NOT share your information with any 3rd Party.
We may release customer information to comply with reasonable requests from law enforcement agencies.
