Contacting Savage Classical Guitar – Dealer of Fine Classical Guitars and me, Richard F. Sayage is easy.
I have so many ways to contact me.
- Email me at rich at savageclassical dot com or
- sales at savageclassical dot com or
- rsayage1 at savageclassical dot com
- Additionally, you can email me at rsayage1 at hotmail dot com or savageclassical at outlook dot com especially International email. Sometimes, as I’ve noticed, I’m not getting emails from Europe. I can’t figure it out, but the hotmail email address above will definitely come thru my servers. Try it if you don’t hear back from me, as I usually email back immediately, if not within a few hours. (The other reason is that the savageclassical.com email server has become inundated with Spam type emails. It’s become untenable).
- You must allow savageclassical.com thru your email server or junk mail settings. I’m getting quite a bit of bounce backs, making it impossible for me to communicate with you via email.
- Note: I never send junk mail. Ever. Heck, I’m too busy 🙂
- When writing to me, please have the courtesy to send me your full contact information, a phone number, and your email address. Some people have Outlook.com email addresses that are undeliverable when I respond. Quite annoying.
- Write to me at:

International Shipping – this can be difficult to manage thru the web site. I have done my best to make it a simple matter, but the US Postal Service sometimes can make things difficult. If you go thru the Cart and try to Checkout and some error comes back about shipping in any way, call me or write to me. I can send you a quote for shipping to your country at the lowest cost possible.
Importantly, ALL International Orders must use PayPal to Checkout! Please read that again!!
Typically, I can send a guitar box Internationally for less than $200 and that is Expedited Shipping of 1-5 business days, excluding possible Customs and Duty issues, which, alas, can be interminable at times.
Bear in mind, that to some countries, it is simply and downright expensive, upwards of $300-$600 to send a typical guitar box weighing in and around 20lbs.
Not all, but some countries are very expensive. Please see this page for a further explanation and a list of those countries that are more expensive to ship guitar boxes.
Additionally, as of November 26, 2019 all Brazilian Rosewood guitars (any part of the guitar is using RW, bridge, headstock, etc) are part of the Protective Legislation regarding CITES. All guitars must be certified safe and legal. This is almost impossible for currently owned guitars, owned by me or by you. Please read the following page regarding International Shipping. Any other Rosewood (outside of Brazilian Rosewood or CSA) is legal to send across borders with a total mass of less than 10Kg. The link to our CITES Page is here. Please read it carefully.
Please write to me rich at savageclassical.com if I can be of help in any way. Rich
