Electric instrument limited 1 year warranty
Core Guitars LTD (“Core Guitars”) warrants this Core Guitars instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from the date of delivery . This warranty applies only to the original purchaser, as long as the instrument was purchased directly from Core Guitars, or an authorised Core Guitars dealer.
It is necessary to retain your original sales receipt. This is proof of purchase and will need to be referenced when validating the warranty.
It order to use the warranty, email email@example.com, attaching your sales receipt, an evaluation of the defect/ defective part, and photographic/ audio proof of the defect. Core Guitars will then work with the original purchaser to confirm whether the defect falls within the warranty and will work with the original purchaser to agree next steps. Once the terms of return are agreed, the original purchaser will organise for the Guitar to be returned, and defective components that qualify under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at Core Guitars discretion) free from charge. Should anything go beyond normal service repair, Core Guitars will discuss with the original purchaser whether they are able to correct the instrument at an additional cost to the original purchaser.
All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Core Guitars instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customising setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation and are not covered by this warranty.
