Buying a warranty from an online dealer - good/bad idea?

    Good afternoon,

    I am considering buying a bass from a large online dealer. In this example, it's a Fender. The online dealer offers 1 or 2 year extra warranty. I do not know if this is a great idea or not. Doesn't a company like Fender offer a warranty on its instruments no matter who the dealer is? :confused:
  2. Buying an extended warranty would be a terrible waste of money. If the instrument is OK when you buy it, usually it'll stay OK unless you mess it up.
