One of the many things that separates us from the majority of other shops is we photograph each individual guitar in stock for the website. This gives the customer a great idea of the actual wood grain/finish they will receive when they place an order.
Please note - For any guitars under £500, any guitar with a block finish, or guitars with non heavily figured woods we may use an example image of the guitar. Any guitar with a figured finish or unique colour will have it's own individual image. If we sell one of these guitars and have more than 1 in stock, the listing will display ' Actual Image Arriving Soon ' until the new image is uploaded.
New items come with a minimum 12 month warranty against manufacturer defect.

Credit Card Security
We are now implementing 3D Secure on all online transactions.
3D Secure is an ecommerce fraud prevention protocol which is viewed as standard for globally interoperable payment authentication. 3D Secure can be thought of as an online version of Chip and Pin technology, whereby the cardholder has a personalised password registered with their card that is entered during the checkout process. 3D Secure is the industry standard and all online consumers will soon become as familiar with this, as when they enter their Pin number at a cash machine or till in a shop.
The 3D Secure protocol was developed by Visa to improve the security of Internet payments. The protocol is offered with the service name Verified by Visa, MasterCard SecureCode and most recently we have implemented American Express SafeKey for total protection. All are designed to allow authentication of cardholders by their Issuers at participating merchants. The objective is to benefit all participants by providing Issuers the ability to fully authenticate cardholders through the use of a password during Internet purchases, reducing the likelihood of fraudulent usage of Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards and improving overall transaction performance.
Credit card details are not held by Guitar Village or kept on any servers.
