Vintage Guitars Australia specialise in fine quality Fender and Gibson electric guitars and basses.

Our instruments are sourced globally for both players and collectors alike.

Our business goal is to provide vintage musical instruments which are both 100% original and in excellent condition with no modifications or repairs. Where modifications or repairs have been conducted, these have been fully listed on the site to the best of our knowledge.

Any questions regarding any of the instruments, feel free to contact us.

 

Conditions of Sale

 

If You Are Purchasing

Payment is made by direct deposit to the company Hutchens & Associates Pty Ltd. Shipping is additional to the price of the guitar.

Once agreement to purchase a guitar is reached, an invoice for the amount owing will be issued, and once payment is received, the guitar will be professionally packed and shipped using your preferred carrier and insurance conditions. We will organise shipping insurance in case of theft or damage.

A 48 Hour acceptance period after the guitar is delivered will be available. We will contact you after the guitar or bass is delivered to make certain that you are completely happy with your purchase.

If the guitar or bass is returned in exactly the same condition as it left, then a 100% refund is available on the guitar or bass during the first 48 hours. The purchaser pays the initial and return shipping cost during the refund process.

Photography of the internal components of each instrument is made at varying stages and will be provided to the purchaser after the sale has been finalised.

 

If You Are Consigning

Hutchens & Associates Pty Ltd does not need to hold your stock.

We may ask you to provide the instrument to take photographs to validate the originality of the instruments. We will not consign non-original instruments. As such, we may ask you to send the guitar or bass to an intermediary vintage guitar expert for validation before the instrument is placed on the site.

 

Layby

Holding and layby of instruments involves a minimum $300 deposit with up to 120 days following to pay the remainder. After 90 days, if the instrument is not purchased outright as per the layby agreement, the initial $300 deposit is forfeited and the remaining monies returned to the purchaser.

 

Shipping

Shipping is not included in the price unless negotiated at the point of sale. Typically, shipping and insurance from Perth to the Eastern States is between $120-500 depending on the value of insurance required.

Unless otherwise specified by the client, the company will use Pack’n Send domestically and Fedex for shipping overseas with appropriate customs clearance etc.

All guitars and basses will be insured at the sale price and packed appropriately to ensure the instruments do not suffer any damage in transit.
