A word about wood. Mother Nature has blessed the whole world with nearly infinite choice. Different species that often share similar qualities - structural integrity, weight, tonal quality - while looking very different from one another.
Being based in Asia, for me Asian wood ticks all boxes, plus one: it doesn't require shipping which is both costly and polluting. What's sensible and good for the environment is good for me. Therefore, I am proud to say that, all our entry level instruments come as standard with those magnificent Asian woods.
You can certainly choose wood from trees that grow on the other side of the planet. We'll get it for you. You'll just have to put up with me for five minutes, while I sing the prizes of its Asian equivalent. And I promise you, if you trust me on that you'll be happy you did - and so will Mother Nature herself. Thank you.

Deposit is non-refundable.
About Paypal fees: In their immense generosity, Paypal arbitrarily state that, fees are on the seller side. Reality is, we pay Paypal fees on almost everything we buy for the shop. So we kindly ask you to share the burden with us. It's usually 4 to 5%. Say, you pay only 2% and everyone's happy. It isn't much - $20 on every 1,000 bucks.. But for us, paying $40 fees when we have already paid once seems unfair. To be sure, you can choose not to split the fees. We won't argue. Thanks.
Return policy: MüB purchased from the Available Basses page and Classic series are fully refundable. They can be returned within one week from the date the instrument is received.
Custom-Fit basses are unique instruments often modified to client's specifications. As such it takes time to find another byer. We are still open to take them back. But we will retain the deposit as partial compensation for our work and the money spent for parts and wood. Trust us, a Custom-Fit costs us a lot more than the $500 deposit.
Either ways, the buyer bears shipping cost. We only accept return shipment with Fedex/DHL/UPS, insured for the full value of the instrument. A returned instrument must be in the same condition as we shipped it. Any damage during shipment back to us is considered buyer's responsibility. In other words, the buyer is responsible for the instrument from the moment it leaves the safety of our shop till it gets back.
