Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy

SHIPPING

ONLY SHIPPING OFFERED CURRENTLY IS IN THE 48 CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES AND DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

Mad N8v Guitars uses Ground and Priority Mail (except where noted) for all deliveries. Mad N8v Guitars will decide how to best ship your order upon packaging. Packages shipped via Ground can be tracked online using your order confirmation number and/or tracking number. Generally small orders will be delivered via USPS Priority, and larger orders will be delivered via Ground carrier such as UPS, FedEx, etc.

Shipping rates are typically $99 to cover insurance for shipment to make sure you get your product in mint condition. Please note that rates can vary due to different factors including your location, product size and service method for delivery. Because shipping rates can change, you will be notified the same day or next business day if the shipping rate differs from original quote. Mad N8v Guitars offers competitive shipping rates, but occasionally we get hit with surcharges or extra fees, a portion of which is paid by customer.

Signature is required upon delivery of all shipped guitars and basses.

Expedited shipping is also available, by calling us at (918) 575-8345. Expedited shipping for these delivery options is based on business days, therefore (for example), an item ordered on Wednesday with 3-day delivery would not arrive until the following Monday.

If you need overnight shipping, or overnight shipping with Saturday delivery, please call the Mad N8v Guitars staff at (918) 575-8345 to make arrangements.

Please note that Mad N8v Guitars cannot guarantee overnight delivery of products, because of variables such as time of day the order is placed, available stock on hand, and other factors.


Currently, Mad N8v Guitars does not ship to APO/FPO addresses. We apologize for this inconvenience. The reason for this shipping restriction is because of high damage rates and loss experienced in the past. Furthermore, electronic gear and guitars that sit in non-climate controlled warehouses/depots often used in the APO/FPO pipeline tend to suffer damage from temperature, humidity, and other factors.  If your address is an APO/FPO address, we recommend you ship your order to a friend/relative in the US.  They can then make arrangements to ship to you via a major carrier.

BUILD TIMES

Build times vary based on the time of year, model you order, and options you select. Instruments with more elaborate options can take longer than instruments with more basic options. Generally, build times for Custom Shop guitars and basses can range from 12 - 20 weeks, but in some cases, it could be less, or it could be more. Basic features on guitar, assuming order is placed when it is not peak season and all features are available to add to guitar/bass, can usually be done in 3 weeks or less

Rushed delivery of Mad N8v Guitars Custom guitar or bass is now available. This does not mean that the quality of the build is rushed, only that your order is expedited, cutting down the average build time significantly. The charge for the RUSH option is 10% of the instrument's total cost, and it must be paid in full up front (no deposits).

“Rushed" instruments are NOT RETURNABLE.

To have your build "rushed", call our sales team at (918) 575-8345.

20% DEPOSIT

Get your Mad N8v Guitars Custom guitar or bass build started by paying a deposit of 20% of the total price (excluding shipping). When you pay a deposit, we will begin your custom build immediately. When your build is complete, you will receive an invoice for the remaining balance. We will contact you via email to go over your custom order if there are any questions and/or if we need to get a special image from you. You will then be given a secure link to send your deposit.

There is a 20% restocking/cancellation fee on all online Custom Shop builds that are cancelled prior to receipt of the instrument. Therefore, if you pay a deposit, and subsequently cancel your order, you will not be refunded the 20% deposit. By paying the 20% Deposit, you acknowledge these terms.

On Custom Shop guitars and basses ordered using the 20% deposit, final payment must be made within 30 days of instrument completion. Failing to do so will incur a $100.00 per month fee for holding and storage. After 3 months we will keep 20% plus the 100.00 per month storage fees ($300.00).

CHANGES & CANCELLATIONS

There are no changes allowed to an order once the order has been placed. Therefore, please be sure of your Custom Shop guitar or bass options prior to placing your order.

There is a 20% restocking fee for Custom Shop orders cancelled prior to customer's receipt of instrument.

PROCESSING & SHIPPING TIME

Many small parts and accessories sold online are made-to-order, such as pick guards, pickups and similar items, so you should allow 1 - 2 weeks of receipt of the order for shipment, unless otherwise noted on the product pages.

Guitars-in-Stock take a few days to process and ship, as they are given a final inspection prior to being shipped.

How long it will take to receive your order after it's shipped depends on your address and item(s) ordered. However, once your package has left Mad N8v Guitars, we cannot control factors such as weather that may delay your receipt.
