I ask a deposit of US$500 to secure a place on my building schedule. When I'm about to start work on your lute, I will ask for a further payment, to be determined according to the price of the instrument. I will ask for a final payment upon the instrument's completion, before shipping or pick-up.
Final payment includes:
The cost of the case is not included in the instrument's price. I order custom-made cases from Kingham MTM Casemakers in the United Kingdom.
The deposit is non-refundable. If for any reason you are not able to accept delivery of the completed instrument, I will refund all payments made excluding the US$500 deposit. (The deposit may be applied to a future order.)
For Canadian residents only, GST will be charged on the instrument, case, and other costs outlined above.
For U.S. customers, lutes and lute accessories are duty-free between Canada and the U.S.
