    Is the return Policy from the date of purchase or date received? It took 45 day for me to even get it. there’s nothing wrong with it, the neck is too big for me and I’m struggling playing it.

    So what am I supposed to do? Just package it up and send it back to you? No RMA or any other interaction? You sent me a guitar and three allen wrenches, but none of them will turn the truss rod. Maybe I’m doing it wrong but there is no documentation with the guitar that describes how to adjust the truss rod. If I cannot turn my own truss rod then this is a useless instrument and I want to return it, but I feel funny just throwing it back in the box and hauling it to the UPS store. I’ve written for support and received no reply at all. If you exchange it will I get one that I can adjust, or should I just give up and ship it back and cross my fingers that you’ll refund some amount of the cost? Sounds like you’re going to ding me pretty hard for having taken it out the box to actually play it.

    So disappointing to have waited so long for this instrument only to find that I can’t turn the truss rod and support is essentially going to be zero.

    I have been trying to reach someone for over a month now. This is ridiculous. I do not get replies on email, and no one ever answers the phone or returns the couple of messages I’ve been able to leave. I ordered a guitar in July. My son’s teacher has informed me the rod is warped and they have not been able to adjust it to correct it. I need to exchange it, do I just send it back with the receipt? I would like some form of communication before I do that. I’m not sure you actually have anyone there!

      Greetings from Sire Guitars!

      Our sincere apologies for any inconveniences on your end. Can we ask where did you order your son’s bass? So that we can give the best possible solution for your situation. Again our apologies to you and we look forwardto your response.

    I ordered a bass yesterday. Vintage V7 red 5 string. It says that it has an alder body. It shows a picture with a maple fingerboard. Is that correct? Or does it come with a rosewood fingerboard? Your site as it pertains to specifications can be confusing with the vintage basses because they all show maple fingerboard.
