New, factory sealed packages (such as amplifiers and speakers) that were opened by you will incur a 15% restocking fee if you simply "changed your mind", since they can no longer be sold as "New". If the item is defective, it will be repaired or replaced under the Warranty Policy at no charge.

Used items will be refunded in full, less any actual shipping costs incurred by John Fox Bass, and less any unrecoverable payment processing fees such as PayPal fees, etc..

Actual incurred repair or restoration costs will also be subtracted from your refund for any New or Used items that are returned with new damage or wear and tear caused by you.
