Shipping, Payments and VAT

Shipping Prices

We ship to the UK, Europe, and the Rest of the World. We try to keep shipping costs as low as possible calculating shipping based on the weight and value of the items. To see the shipping cost please create an account and proceed through the checkout process where you will see all the delivery options. Depending on the value and weight of your order you may not be presented with all shipping options only those applicable to your order.

We aim to fulfil orders as quickly as possible but not always on the day of order, if your order is particularly urgent, please contact us. We offer a very wide range of customised products which are often made in small batches so even though they show in stock they may need to be processed which can delay shipping, all prewired kits are made to order. Even if you choose Special delivery, it does not always mean that your order will ship same day, but it does mean it is guaranteed to get to you the quickest way.


If you are outside the UK and your basket is Airmail it is not tracked however you will be offered the option to upgrade to International Tracked and Signed or Signed For, whatever service your country accepts. You will also see a COURIER option where we have set a default rate so that you can complete your order. These are estimates and if shipping to your country is less than this then we will automatically refund the difference, if it is more, we will contact you. This is by far the most reliable method with the least parcels lost and the speediest delivery. We usually use UPS, FEDEX/TNT, Parcelforce, DPD which are all fully tracked and insured services through customs delays are still possible but much easier to resolve.


If you are ordering from outside the UK, please be sure to select the Globe icon at the top of the page to see prices excluding VAT, if your shipping address is outside the UK VAT will automatically be deducted.

Upon receipt you will have to pay local VAT, Duty, and any fees that the shipper may levy.

Return conditions

General parts:

Standalone items such neck plates, bridges, sockets, pickguards and all metal parts and plastic parts should be offered up to your guitar to establish that they are the correct size and line up and when fitted will give the desired appearance and functionality. Once and item has been fitted to your instrument it is not automatically eligible for return as all returns must be un-marked and in as new condition so that they can be re sold as a new item. If you are unsure, please contact us and we may request that you send photos and then may only approve a refund upon receipt and inspection.


Items such as screws and the like may not be returned once fitted, it is important therefore that you check thread sizes and length and any other physical characteristics of your purchase before fitting.

Pickguards and non-relic:

Do not remove the protective cover or place any components on this pickguard until you have made a "dry run" on the instrument. Make sure all mounting holes and pickup cuts are positioned correctly. Pickguard replacement warranty will be void if the protective cover has been removed. Removing the protective film means that the item is not in a re-saleable condition and therefore we cannot accept it back for a refund.

Aged and relic hardware:

This is a very subjective area, and you may of course return any items whose appearance is not suited to your instrument, but they must not be fitted first. You should open the package and offer them up to your guitar.


Electronic components may not be returned once they have been fitted. Please contact us if you have any questions about suitability before ordering.

Pre-wired kits:

These are usually made up to order even though they are from our standard program and so please contact us with any questions regarding suitability and fit for your instrument. All Pre Wired kits are tested before shipping to ensure that they are working correctly and upon receipt you should carry out any checks and tests and ensure correct alignment and suitability prior to fitting as we cannot accept responsibility for a kit once fitted. You should take special care regarding the difference between USA Imperial sizes and Metric sizes which are often used in Far East instruments. Please contact us if you have any questions about suitability before ordering and upon receipt.


May not be returned once they have been fitted and so it is particularly important that you look and listen to youtube demos, do any research, and please discuss with us the suitability of our pickups. We understand that tone is subjective, but all our pickups are of the highest quality and all guitars present a variation on the core tone of the pickup/guitar combination. If you have received your pickups and just change your mind before fitting, then of course you can return but once fitted even if you leave the wires the same length they just cannot be returned.

If you are unsure as to the status of an item that you wish to return, please contact us via email

Payment methods

Our site uses Opayo and Paypal to process payment, if you are having any difficulty, please contact us as we can also take payment over the phone or by bank transfer.
