The prices shown on this website are inclusive of delivery to UK only addresses and represent the total amount payable.  All requested changes or negotiations for any item for sale are conditional and no contact for sale will be made until the subsequent agreed changes have been made to the website listing and the potential buyer has purchased the item via the website.  This condition extends to all forms of communication between both parties and includes changes to pricing, items included in the listing, amendments to delivery options and any other change from the original website listing via email, verbal, text or any other form of acceptable communication entered into by both parties.  In the event that any agreed changes are made to a listing and the item is subsequently purchased by a third party then the contact of sale will be between Riviera Guitars and the third party and any discussions or agreements with the original potential buyer will be null and void.  Riviera Guitars will not be held responsible or liable for any compensation in this event and no contract will have been made.  Riviera Guitars reserves to the right to not inform any prospective buyer of any interest from a third party relating to the same item for sale.

Our guitars are available for sale across a number of different websites and as such each guitar is priced in accordance with the website it is available from at that time.  This is due to each website having a unique fee structure which directly affects the selling price or inclusive elements of each listing.  Riviera Guitars reserves the right to offer the same guitar for different prices dependent on the website it is being purchased from and that no compensation will be made in the event that a lower price is subsequently identified from an alternative website where it was available for sale.

Our guitars are made available for sale in a working order which means they are complete, undamaged and structurally sound.  Whilst each guitar is inspected, serviced, cleaned and comes with a usable set of strings, we will not be held responsible for any specific set-up to the guitar which includes intonation, playability, truss rod adjustment, fret condition, string height or any other standard or measurement normally associated with a musical instrument.  Electric and Acoustic guitars are precision instruments and we therefore recommend any set up is undertaken by the buyer at their own cost to achieve the full potential of the instrument.
