Hello my TB kin, Im frantic and need some consoling and some positive outcome stories. You see, my Fender Jazz (active) just quit making sound, nothing, not even a buzzing. I replaced the batteries twice, which by the way worked in other devices, I was devastated! Its my main player, the best tone that Ive ever heard! Good news is a bought the extended warranty, which expires in just about another month. Bad news? I have to ship it to a place called Manella Guitars, apparently the only authorized Fender repair pros. Its just south of Pittsburgh, anyone ever hear of it? Im a nervous wreck because of all the horror stories I hear about UPS abuse / broken necks etc. Well, I shipped it today....cost me $ 65.OO.....with insurance, I bubble wrapped the hell out of it. They should receive it on Tuesday, I'll call on Wedneday to see if they got it and what shape its in. Please, someone tell me a positive outcome of having to ship a guitar this way....I'll never be able to sleep. Thanks for your shoulders.
