    I'm considering pursuing this and am wondering if anyone has done it. Per California Lemon Laws (which apply to consumer goods other than cars), if something under warranty is in a repair facility for over 30 calendar days this qualifies it as a "lemon" and the purchase price (plus other damages depending on the details) is refunded.

    If you have the time and resources to pursue it, I don't see why not. How much do you have into the amp? You will have filing fees and a lot of other fees, maybe even lawyer.

    cool law - but are Bass amps "Consumer goods"?

    Also check your credit card that you bought it with. Some offer additional, really no hassle protection.

    Magnuson-Moss is a federal law that protects the buyer of any product that costs more than $25 and comes with a written warranty.

    Thankfully it appears as though the situation has been rectified. Grease applied to squeaky wheel.
