This deposit is set at the token amount of $500 for the shopper who may be sitting up late at night and decides it’s time to pull the trigger on their dream bass! (Having described said dream bass in our Instrument Inquiry Form)
Please note – the $500 amount does not reflect the amount of the first full payment required. This is a placeholder deposit and we will finalize the full order with you promptly. For any questions please contact the shop: email@example.com or call +1 (860) 535-9399
To build your bass we require a first payment of 1/2 the instrument price. This puts you in the production line and we begin making parts for your instrument. When your instrument is headed to the workbench for assembly, we require a second payment of the other 1/2instrument price.
Thethird and final payment will reflect accessories, strings, bag, etc. plus tax and shipping, and is taken before final shipment or delivery.
For example, your dream bass costs $8000: The first deposit will be $4000 (minus $500 if you’ve bought a placeholder deposit here), the second payment will be $4000, and the third will be the price of strings, extras, tax and shipping where applicable.
These direct payments allow us to offer straight-from-the-factory pricing! In a regular retail setting our American-built basses might cost twice as much.
