For tech help (information on how to buy or sell a guitar outside of my shop), the cost is $3.00 a minute. Please have your credit card ready.
I accept Visa, Mastercard, & American Express.
(Credit card information is not kept on a computer.)
I speak and read 100% English, Spanish and Japanese and also have the reading capacity of French, Italian, German, and Portuguese. This ability is invaluable for research.
If you would like to consign a guitar for sale, I pay out 70% at point of sale. All consignments when sold become tradeable toward FFSI guitars at 100%. If I donít envision it as a good resale, it wonít be available in my store in the first place. Tech help charges do not apply for individuals honestly intending to consign an instrument.
All instrument purchases made through the internet, that are returned, are subject to a 15 % restocking fee. Instruments purchased in my walkin store can be returned and exchanged for an equal store credit, not for a cash back basis. Signs reflecting this policy are found in several places within the store. (10 / 12 / 98)
I offer a full line of repairs. These in most cases are done by me or 3 other people whom I trust. For example, one of these I would have do any extensive repair on 19th century guitars.
I also offer Music lessons on 26 instruments. I have been teaching six days a week for 25 years. I teach everyone to sight read (because it makes one self-educateable). I teach Classical & Flamenco guitar, Music Theory. I have played music from more than 30 countries. I charge $25.00 per half hour.
Please do not send money orders or checks for products listed within before contacting Fine Fretted String Instruments about sales tax for Calif. residents and shipping costs for all orders.
