- COVID 19(Coronavirus) -
We remain open for UK and International Mail Order. The majority of services are running normally and we continue with despatches throughout the week. Overseas customers are advised to check the current Royal Mail International Incident Bulletin for latest information on their destination country. By default we use Priority mailing services so there is no advantage in adding this service to international destinations.
Most UK areas are running a regular service but periodically some may be affected by disruptions and delays due to staff shortages resulting in a small number of deliveries taking longer than the usual 1-3 days norm although the situation is widely variable across the UK . Generally the situation is near to normal, but we do appreciate your patience and understanding in awaiting deliveries.
For urgent items we still recommend using Priority Delivery (+£6.00+VAT supplement on top of standard 1st Class) for next working day service following despatch. Priority Delivery is a despatch option and will not speed-up the supply of out of stock items. For sameday despatch of stock items, orders must be placed by 1:00pm. Our posting days are currently Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
We are still experiencing longer than usual supply times for some out of stock titles especially from some Italian and US publishers following the widespread lockdown which is having a knock-on effect with many publishers and suppliers.
Publications from Berben's new owner Edizioni Curci, are proving particularly slow as they are undertaking a reprint of the catalogue. With over 6000 titles in progress, this is naturally slowing delivery times for back ordered items. Patience please! However, stock is arriving regularly as they are working through their backlog. Please check first if the item(s) you require are particularly urgent.
We thank you for your patience, custom and loyalty and remain as always at your service. Please feel free to either message or call us with any orders or enquiries.
- Strong Customer Authentication 2 -
From 14 September 2019, in response to a change in European law an extra layer of authentication may be requested before online payment can be authorised. This will usually take the form of a one-time code which will be sent via SMS text to your mobile phone.
The new system is called Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), and will randomly apply whenever you make a purchase from all retailers, including Guitarnotes. This applies only to customers within Europe.
Should you experience any problems with your payment transaction please call us:
