So I bought a brand new Jazz on 11/14 from Guitar Center. Played it for only about a week then dropped it off & at my local instrument repair shop to get setup. Living in a large city & w/ the holidays turnaround is anywhere from 2-4wks. Well I get a call today 12/29 from the shop letting me know the truss rod isn't working. Well GC only has there 30 day return policy & basically wash their hands of the situation. I've spoken to the manager & to corporate HQ w/ no luck. I'm being told I need to take it to a Fender repair shop (who indicated on the phone I may incur charges). I understand it's under warranty but this is a huge headache on an instrument that was defective from the get go? What happens w/ people buying guitars as gifts??? - - my mom wouldn't know if a truss rod works. Any advice I'm all ears.
