Case Details: Reunion Blues gig bag

Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows some normal wear for its age; the finish has checking and hazing throughout the body and neck, multiple small dings and chips, and wear around the F-holes. Some of the finish has worn away in layers along the back of the neck, and there are additional small dings as well. There is a repaired headstock break which has resulted in some small missing bits and finish wear; the finish appears not to have been touched up in this area.

Serial Number: 360265

Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and minor neck relief; the guitar is currently set up with 10s, and the truss rod is functional. The frets are wide and low with moderate wear in the first position. The serial number dates the guitar to 1965, but the Sparkling Burgundy finish and neck joint would likely make this a 1968.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
