New product(s) come with full manufacturer’s warranty. Pre-owned products come with our own 3 month warranty/guarantee that your product(s) will be free from defects over that period. In the unlikely event that a problem arises, we will rectify it entirely at our cost using, as far as possible, genuine branded parts. Your statutory rights are not affected.


We operate a 5 day, no quibble, return policy in the event that you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase or you simply wish to swap it for another of our basses or products that you may also have looked at or considered.


Shipping costs are not included in the purchase price. We ship basses worldwide at the following standard rates:

UK £12 (Next day service) Mainland Europe from £25 (Economy 3 days+ service), Outside the European Union: please ask us for a quotation.

Basses not shipped in a hardcase are at the customer's risk as they cannot be insured under our courier's standard terms and conditions. We can supply a Thomann branded hardcase at 'cost price' for the purpose of safe shipping. Choose either a Tolex covered wood case for £35 or an ABS moulded plastic case for £43


GBBL offers a Commission Selling Service for preowned bass guitars (not amplification).  A 'commission bass' must be a brand that GBBL doesn't stock and must be deemed, by us, to have a re-sale value of £750 or more. 
The charge for our service is 20% of the sale price of the instrument, inclusive of VAT. Our service includes preparing the instrument for sale  (excluding any necessary repairs / remedial work) but including cleaning / reconditioning, setting up and re-stringing where necessary. The cost of new strings (at trade price) shall be borne by our customer. GBBL will not fit new strings without the customers prior consent. GBBL will not reduce the agreed sale price without its customers consent.
GBBL will photograph the instrument and advertise it for sale on its website and on Social Media pages, along with a  detailed description and specification. GBBL will, where appropriate, suitably package and ship the bass. The shipping cost will be borne by the end purchaser unless otherwise agreed.
GBBL's policy with regards to preowned instruments is to offer a 3 month warranty. This must apply to basses sold on commission and, in the event that repair/remedial work is genuinely necessary within that period we will put it right for the end purchaser and our customer will refund our reasonable costs. Such remedial work and its cost will be agreed with our customer before being carried out.
