I bought this new from Guitar Center on 6/5/2015, I purchased the optional 36 month protection plan. It is in great shape but has the typical tolex tears (see pics) It's time to be more portable, my SVT days are coming to an end. Why so much? Great shape, guaranteed accidental damage plan (1.5YR left) included, this is not a normal as-is ad. I will hand over the original receipt and protection plan to you upon purchase. The 36 month protection plan is defined as follows: "3YR Accidental damage, normal wear and power surges are no longer an issue with these comprehensive and affordable plans. We even pay to ship your gear for repairs. Covers much more than the original manufacturer's warranty: Damage due to unexpected and unintentional spills, drops and impacts Damage due to normal wear and tear Damage caused by lightning/power surge Damage due to dust, internal heat, humidity, heavy usage No Lemon Policy on merchandise over $200- if it fails for the same reason 3 times, it is replaced on the 4th breakdown Complete refund in the event of failure or substandard performance on merchandise under $200 (Guitar Center Gift Certificate sent for the full price plus applicable sales tax paid) Manufacturer's Specs Coverage -- The product does not need to fail to be covered.
