Title says it all.

Buddy of mine said that the only thing with ordering from Musician's Friend is that your product always comes in at least a little damaged. Any truth to that? Planning on getting an ESP MH-1000 and Peavy Valveking 112 Combo Amp. I don't want them to come damaged lol.

If it comes in a little damaged, then I would suspect it's the delivery carrier's fault, not Musician's Friend.

No, but it is getting mailed to you.. if it's damaged it isn't Musicians Friend's fault.. it's just the stupid postal service.

I've ordered plenty of stuff off there, never had a problem.

Musicians Friend is good. Ive ordered a guitar and an amp off there along with numerous pedals.
I know now what I knew then, but I didn't know then what I know now

I bought a Squier Telecaster from MF. At least I think it was MF. That was a long time ago. But I never had any problems with MF.
#8
Dangit I guess I'm taking my local post office's delivery service for a test drive. Hopefully they don't mess with my gear.

I love musicians friend, they've got a nice selection and decent shipment rates. I bought an epiphone from them and it arrived fine, not even the corners of the box where dented...

I've spent entirely too much money at MF. Maybe they are a bit evil for pulling me away from local shops, but they know how to do good business. Anytime a produce has been damaged from shipping, or isn't what I expect, I just send it back for free, and they're happy to exchange it or give me my money back... this sounds like an ad, but I really like their customer service--plus I live two states away from a main warehouse so I always get free 3-4 day shipping in 2 days!

Ive ordered a guitar and know a friend that also had his guitar playable
straight out of the box.

Once I had an order miss the belt and it was late. I called them and they
knocked off the shipping and they were real cool. I just like the fact that
they dont lie.

Can you get insurance, incase something did get damaged? Or will MF take the damaged item back for a refund/replacement?

Not only will they replace or refund for damaged items they will replace or refund if you just don't like the gear for up to 45 days.

My local music stores only carry off brand guitars at Fender and Gibson prices so all of my gear has been bought online, mostly from MF and the only problem I ever had was my Rev Jr arrived DOA I called and they sent me a shipping label to return it and within a week the replacement one arrived.

Not in my experience, but mine is not the same as the next guy's. They are obsessively careful about packing your expensive junk so it doesn't get messed up. I bought a banjo from them a couple of years ago and the padding was more than redundant; the redundancy was redundant. I wouldn't sweat it as long as they keep shipping USP; make that kind of bet with the post office and you can be sure the only rule they have for handling packages is "Chuck the heavy stuff underhand; heave the light packages as far as you can".

Just be sure your order says the number of units you want before you submit the order. Their website tends to have a mind of its own when it comes to cancelling or adjusting an order. You may end up receiving and being billed for two or three guitars when you think you have ordered only one.
