We pride ourselves on getting your order out ASAP (typically packed and booked within the business hour!). However, we cannot be held responsible for any delays once the item has been handed over to a courier service. Most deliveries of items that we have in stock occur within 7 days with most East Coast capital city deliveries taking 2-3 days. Please note, lockdowns and COVID restrictions can also overwhelm these systems, 

Special Orders, Custom Orders, and non-stock items that are ordered have an estimated delivery date. We cannot not be held responsible if these dates are not met by our suppliers, and a failure to deliver goods by a particular date will not be accepted as a reason for an order cancellation unless agreed to by Echo Tone Guitars. Payments made on Pre-Orders are refundable as store credit should needs change. 

For international shipping, please note that that any additional customs duties, import taxes or any other expenses which may arise as a result of an international transaction, are not included in the shipping cost and are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest you contact your local customs office to establish if any duties or taxes will be payable on your purchase.
