Store Policies


Risk Free Purchasing
We completely understand customer concern with regard to buying expensive instruments online. Dream Guitars® has taken all of the risk out of the buying process, so you can buy with complete confidence and gain access to instruments you just can’t find in the average music store. We sell high-end custom instruments every day to happy customers all over the world. You could be one of them. Whether you wish to buy a new or used instrument we’ve created policies that allow for a hassle free and risk free purchase. Please review our return and exchange policies below.

Cash Pricing
Cash prices where available on an individual item are a discounted amount based on an item’s full price, and are valid only for the following forms of payment: bank wire transfer, check, money order, and cash. We accept bank wire for any items selling over $1,500. Customers are encouraged to ask their Dream Guitars® Sales Representative for more information.

Return Policy On In-Stock Inventory Stringed Instruments Only
Instruments purchased without a demo session in our showroom are eligible for our 72-hour trial period. Customers have 72 hours from receipt of an instrument to determine if it is right for them. The instrument may be returned for any reason during that time. Your only liability is the shipping costs in both directions. A small price to pay for access to the finest instruments in the world. The instrument must be shipped back within 72 hours. You must contact us for a return authorization (RMA#). Items returned without an RMA # will be refused. All in-shop sales are final. All international sales are final.

Return Policy On Custom Ordered Stringed Instruments Only
Custom-built instruments require a non-refundable deposit and may be eligible for our 72-hour trial period. Eligibility for the 72-hour trial period is at the sole discretion of Dream Guitars® and is based on how closely the specifications of the instrument are to the builder’s norm. If a 72-hour trial is granted, customers have 72 hours from receipt of a custom built instrument to determine if it is right for them. The instrument may be returned for any reason during that time. Dream Guitars® will resell the instrument and process a refund only after the guitar is resold to a new buyer. The refund will be 100% of the purchase price less any tax, import duties (if applicable), shipping costs, and a 2.5% admin fee if the item was purchased with a credit card. You must contact us for a return authorization (RMA#). Items returned without an RMA # will be refused. All international sales are final.
