Product + Services Information
Most products (and some services) offered on our Web site are available in Brightonguitars.co.uk stores, however, prices and availability may vary. Prices shown on the Web site apply to the products and services on the Web site and may change at any time without notice. If, by mistake, we have underpriced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we despatch the item concerned. All prices are quoted in UK pounds sterling and are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated. Sales to destinations outside the UK mainland will only be accepted with prior arrangement with our export division. Pre-payment must be received by bank transfer before goods are dispatched and we operate a minimum export sale order value of £250 excluding UK VAT.
We do not discriminate between consumers who can access this Web site and those that prefer to grace one of our stores. Our stores will almost always endeavour to match the price of a product or service that is published on the Brightonguitars.co.uk Web site. We always attempt to display products on our Web site in an accurate manner, however, because of the technical differences in the equipment of users, we cannot be responsible for photographic differences in size, shape and colour of products.
The receipt of an email order confirmation from Brightonguitars.co.uk indicating that a transaction has been authorised is simply a recognition that we have received the consumers requested order. The display of goods for sale on the Web site constitutes a mere invitation to treat. There will be no contract between Brightonguitars.co.uk and the consumer until we actually despatch the goods to you (or in the case of prepayment when payment is received by Brightonguitars.co.uk). At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods without giving reason. At the moment that the goods are dispatched (or in the case of pre-payment, payment is received by Brightonguitars.co.uk), a contract will be made between Brightonguitars.co.uk and the consumer. Due to the technical complexities associated with trading online, Brightonguitars.co.ukcurrently settle all transactions immediately after the customers address has been verified by their issuing bank. When the order has been processed the customer is then billed accordingly.
Brightonguitars.co.uk reserve the right to limit the quantity of any item sold, or prohibit a sale altogether, including but not limited to prohibiting sales to resellers. In any such event the consumer will be refunded immediately.
All goods are supplied with a 12 month manufacturers warranty unless specified otherwise.
We accept Visa credit and debit cards including Electron, Mastercard, Eurocard, Maestro, Switch, Delta, Solo + bank to bank transfer with prior arrangement.

All goods and services are sold in accordance with The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (SI 2000 No.2334), the full text of which may be viewed here. This regulation essentially ensures that the consumer is given clear information about the goods and services the supplier is offering, is provided with an order confirmation via email and has a "cooling off" period of 7 working days - during which time the consumer may cancel the contract by notifying the supplier of their request to cancel either in writing or by email. Please note that cancellation of contracts for the purchase of copyrighted goods (all software, media and sample CDs) can not be accepted where the item has been unsealed. Goods ordered specifically to meet a consumers requirements or (Special Orders) are exempt from these regulations. The consumer will not be refunded for the outgoing delivery charges (from Brightonguitars.co.uk to the Consumer) or the cost of returning the goods to Brightonguitars.co.uk unless the goods prove to be faulty or there are system incompatibility issues with hardware and software supplied by Brightonguitars.co.uk. Brightonguitars.co.uk can arrange for the collection of goods at the consumers expense, this is currently charged at our couriers standard rates and is not the same cost as outgoing shipping, alternatively the consumer may choose to return the goods by their own means. Brightonguitars.co.uk strongly recommend that if returning goods by their own means, they use an insured courier service as Brightonguitars.co.uk will not be responsible for the goods until they have been checked and signed for. Furthermore, the consumer is under a duty to restore goods to us and to maintain them in the condition in which they were supplied by us. If goods are damaged or not saleable as new, Brightonguitars.co.uk reserves the right to seek recompense.
To cancel this contract, please notify us in writing or by email. A telephone call is not sufficient unless both you and Brightonguitars.co.uk agree otherwise. You must take care of the goods whilst they are in your possession and ensure that you are able to package the relevant item(s) securely and make it available for collection by our chosen courier. Please also inform us of the reason for which the goods are no longer required.
Brightonguitars.co.uk are particularly concerned with your complete satisfaction. Therefore in addition to these regulations, if within 14 days of purchase, the consumer wishes to return goods to us for reasons of incompatibility or they are not satisfied with the goods, subject to the previous exclusions regarding copyrighted goods and items ordered specifically to meet a customers requirements, Brightonguitars.co.uk will credit the consumer provided the goods are returned to us in an undamaged and saleable condition.
Exclusion of Expressed or Implied Warranties
Whilst we take the utmost care to ensure complete compatibility between hardware and software products and endeavour to configure all equipment to the consumers requirements, due to the frequent changes and continual upgrading of software and associated drivers we are unable to guarantee compatibility between the two. Should however, a compatibility problem arise we will endeavour to solve the problem, but in the event that we are unable to do so we cannot acccept any liability for consequential loss.
