This week my customers won't be buying...
Stonebridge A17 40CM with action a tad high and no room on the saddle to get the action where we need it. Rejected
G&L Legacy Natural Ash finish. The two piece body has been poorly matched and I am not happy with the cosmetic detail (I will bring you a picture when I have time). Rejected
Godin Kinpin CWII. Pickups poorly mounted resulting in them being way too close to the strings. Requires some major reshaping of the pickup mounts to rectify. Rejected.
Cort SFX 12 String. Couldn't get the action setup to our standard, no saddle left and poor geometry.
Although rejecting guitars is all par for the course when we hand finish them ready for sale, this week brough more than its fair share of issues - however, you take the rough with the smooth!!!
On reflection however I get such a great feeling knowing that I stuck to my principles and each one of these customers trust in my service paid off for them!
If you are thinking of buying a guitar from Richards Guitars - trust me - you are in safe hands I promise!!

To ensure anyone can benefit from this highly personalized service we subsidize the delivery costs from our pocket - not yours, resulting in the following delivery charges*
Any delivery to Western Europe £15.
Eastern Europe £25
Every guitar is packed personally by Richard. We purchase especially strengthened outer cartons and pack each guitar in a way that guarantees the guitar will come out the box as it went in - perfect.
If you bought your guitar from an alternate source it would cost you at least £50 to have it play to the standard that we set our guitars AS standard.
Why would you want to buy from a faceless online store if you can buy from someone who values every customer and their personal needs?
I do hope we can help you further as we provide the service you wish you could find locally!
