Actually, it’s not Fender’s five-year warranty at all - as far as I know it was never offered over here. However, as I explained in a previous post, we have good consumer legislation here in Norway, so we have what amounts to the same thing - a right to complain about manufacturing defects for up to either two or five years after purchase, depending on the type of product. The manufacturer then has to inspect the item, and if it’s found to be a manufacturing defect, either repair, replace, or refund. That’s not to say that Fender haven’t been great - they absolutely have, opting for giving me a brand new amp when they could have got away with replacing the defective part. I’ll re-register the amp, but there really is no need, as the store has issued a new receipt, and the clock will start again from zero.
