Open Chord Music Shop's primary goal is to give our customers the best possible shopping experience and to be 100 percent satisfied with their purchase. So, once a product is purchased, we give our customers a 48 Hour trial period to decide if they are happy with the purchase. If customers are not happy with their purchase, we allow our customers to return the purchased product in MOST cases (NOT ALL PRODUCTS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR RETURN - SEE BELOW WHAT ITEMS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE).
Our policy lasts 48 hours after product delivery. If 48 hours has gone by since package was delivered, unfortunately, any chance for a full refund or exchange is completely void.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the exact same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging with all original parts and components.
To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.
There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted (if applicable)
Partial Refunds (if applicable)
Any item NOT in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error, or any item that is return request that is more than 48 hours after delivery. These cases usually result in 15% restocking fee, but the exact amount of refund is up to Open Chord Music Shop's discretion.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If your refund is approved, then we will refund you the full purchase amount minus any shipping expenses we had to endure (even if free shipping was initially given) as well as a 15% restocking fee.
