I figure I give Fender a shot at the problem with the dead spot(s) on my American Jazz; I sent them an e-mail and received a response that necks are warrantied for 1 year. In reading their Limited Warranty document for electric instruments it says nothing about the neck being limited to 1 year. I responded with a copy of their limited warranty file, but still have not heard back. Does anyone have any experience with this? I wonder if it is indeed limited and I am missing something. I will greatly appreciate your feedback. Update: The guy from Fender customer relations was confused, he thought I was talking about a neck purchased by itself. I am bringing it to Joel Grant at Grant Guitars next week for an evaluation.
