Port Mac Guitars is very proud to introduce the most generous and customer focused return policy the Australian musical instrument retail industry has ever seen. We understand that buying an instrument online can be a disconcerting process for a lot of people. Many people love the convenience of buying online but have hesitations of buying without trying the instrument first. What if the guitar’s neck doesn't’t feel like the way you expected? Or what if it doesn't sound the way you thought it would? We have the solution. From September 19th 2017 we will be offering a wide range of products that will be eligible for our new 30 Day Freight Free Return Policy.
