FENDER MUSICAL INSTRUMENT CORPORATION

STORE POLICY

Satisfaction Guaranteed


If you’re not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, you may return it for a refund of the purchase price to your credit card or exchange it with another product within 30 days of receipt (excluding harmonicas and In Ear Monitors). Depending on product availability, items may be exchanged for another item of equal value (excluding Fender Mod Shop instruments).

Returns & Exchanges


WHAT IF I RECEIVE A DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE PRODUCT AND WANT TO RETURN IT?

A damaged or defective product may be returned or exchanged for the same or a like product. Fender will provide a prepaid shipping label to cover send and return freight costs. Products are considered damaged or defective at the discretion of Fender and require a Return Authorization (RA) number to receive shipping label.

Aside from reported damages or defects, all returned items must be in their original condition with no signs of wear, damage, dinging, or scraping and include all original packaging, manuals, warranties, accessories, etc. (if applicable).


WHAT IF I AM SIMPLY NOT SATISFIED WITH MY PRODUCT AND WANT TO RETURN IT?

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for a refund of the purchase price or exchange it for the same or a like product (excluding harmonicas and In Ear Monitors).

Fender will issue a prepaid shipping label to minimize your return cost. The cost of shipping your returned item back to Fender will be deducted from your overall credit or refund. If your purchase was eligible for free shipping, the original shipping cost of the product(s) returned will also be deducted from your credit or refund.

All returned items must be in their original condition with no signs of wear, damage, dings or scrapes and include all original packaging, manuals, warranties, accessories, etc. (if applicable). Returned items not adhering to this policy may be subject to a restocking/handling fee.

Returns Procedure


How do I make a return?

All returns require prior authorization from Fender and a valid Return Authorization (RA) number. Items returned without a valid RA number will be returned to you.


  1. Contact Consumer Relations at (800) 856-9801 or email us at consumerreturns@fender.com to obtain an RA number and a prepaid return shipping label.
    1. If calling, please have your order number ready, as well as the name on the credit card used in the transaction.
    2. If emailing, please include your order number as well as the name on the credit card used in the transaction in your email.
  2. After receiving your RA number and return shipping label, place the merchandise in its original packaging and apply the shipping label to the box, ensuring that the RA number is on the label.

For Fender Mod Shop purchases, expedited shipping will not impact the actual build time of the guitar. All items in the shopping cart will ship for the quoted price. Some smaller items under 1 lb. may ship USPS and will not be trackable. Orders that include an instrument, amplifier or product that valued at more than $400.00 will ship FedEx Direct Signature Required.

Back Orders

In an effort to better serve you, we are currently only taking orders for items that are in stock and ready to ship to your door (excluding built-to-order Fender Mod Shop instruments).

If the item you are interested in is in stock, you will be able to place it in your shopping cart and continue to check out.

If the item is out of stock, you will not be able to add it to your cart and a “Notify Me When This Arrives” button will appear on the product page. Click the “Notify Me When This Arrives” button to sign-up and receive a back-in-stock email notification when the product is available again. Fender Mod Shop instruments will be shipped upon completion.
