Tips For Safely Shipping Your Guitar
*DO NOT USE STYROFOAM PEANUTS* THEY DO NOT PROTECT YOUR GUITAR AND THEY ARE A BLOODY MESS!
You do not have to de-tune the strings unless shipping by air, although it doesn’t hurt. Make sure the guitar is not moving at all in the case with paper or air packs and that the headstock is properly supported. Some hardcases can still give a bit so recess any tall switches or secure them with styrofoam or cardboard. Then, make sure the case does not move in the box when you give it a good shake. Extra cardboard at the bottom and top of the box is also good idea. Shipping is charged by dimensional weight, so keep the size of the box as small as possible. Anything over 48″ tall gets an automatic $12 surcharge from the shipping companies, sorry bass players. Please contact us with any questions you have.
