Fender Musical Instruments Corporation provides a warranty for this Fender brand instrument, ensuring it is free from defects in materials and workmanship throughout the ownership of the original retail purchaser. However, certain components, including pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electrical parts, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases, and case hardware, are covered for one year from the date of the initial purchase. To qualify for this warranty, the instrument must be purchased from an authorized Fender dealer and is subject to certain limitations. To make a warranty claim, you must provide proof of purchase or a sales receipt. Defective components that meet the criteria for coverage under this warranty will either be repaired or replaced, at the discretion of Fender, at no cost to the owner. For remedies that go beyond standard service repair of any Fender instrument, it is necessary to undergo an assessment and confirmation of the defect by an Authorized Fender Service Center. This evaluation should be accompanied by a direct recommendation to Fender for alternative solutions.

The warranty does not cover several specific aspects, including fret wear, saddle wear, nut wear, strings, and batteries. It also excludes setups, adjustments, or routine maintenance of any kind. Damage to the instrument's finish, such as cracks, splitting, or warping of wood due to environmental factors like temperature or humidity changes, sun exposure, fire, moisture, body salts, acid perspiration, as well as contact with materials like vinyl, plastic, rubber, or non-Fender-approved polishes found in guitar straps or stands/hangers, is not covered. Furthermore, damage, corrosion, or rusting of hardware components due to humidity, salty air, or exposure to moisture, body salts, and perspiration are excluded from the warranty. Any damage resulting from customization or modification, as well as normal wear and tear on various parts of the instrument, case, or gig bag (including jacks, controls, switches, plated surfaces, tuning machines, pickguards, zippers, clasps, handles, latches, and case hardware), is not covered. Additionally, other forms of damage and deterioration stemming from normal usage, wear and tear, aging, accidents, neglect, abuse, or Acts of Nature are not included in the warranty. Any instrument with a missing, altered, or tampered serial number, instruments purchased from unauthorized sources other than an Authorized Fender® Dealer, or instruments that have been serviced by individuals not authorized by Fender, such as anyone other than a Fender Certified Technician at an Authorized Fender Service Center, are also not covered under this warranty.
