We carefully inspect all our products for quality control. Sometimes a product doesn't meet our QA standards or has been damaged in shipping. Rather than create waste and dispose of what could otherwise be a wonderful guitar, we offer it as a deal for those willing to put in a little elbow grease. These B-Stock items often just have minor cosmetic damage and simply require some extra work during the finishing stages. Photos of all damages are available on the product listing. Please note that all B-Stock items are sold as is and sales are final.
