Hey guys! So I finally axed up - found a private seller's beautiful Squier Vintage Modified Bass which had been played twice and was in mint condition! Got it for 40% below new RRP, an absolute steal. Thanks to all of you who helped my decision-making process with your input! The bass still has the balance of six months' warranty. However, the Fender/Squier warranty states that this warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser. I have the sales receipt with the original purchaser's name on it, but does this mean I'd have to give a fake name if I wanted to claim warranty servicing in the next six months? (I don't anticipate this being necessary, but I was going to take it in to my local authorised Fender repair centre for a set-up, and wonder if it would be problematic if they if they did find an issue that was covered by warranty. And I'm curious!) Does anyone have any experience claiming warranty service for an instrument you've bought second-hand?
