This warranty does not include replacement of strings or batteries, or wear to potentiometers, the fingerboard, or surface finish. Problems resulting from disassembly, modification, customization, or repair by anyone without prior authorization from NS Design are not covered by this warranty. We assume no liability other than for the actual repair of the instrument to playable condition within our specifications. This is our sole warranty and it includes all warranties, whether expressed or implied. You may have specific warranty legal rights which vary from state to state.

Your instrument should be examined upon receipt, and any problems with electronics or playability should be reported to NS Design. If the instrument needs to be returned, you will be given a Return Merchandise Authorization number (RMA#) to write on the carton, and you will be responsible for the cost of freight and insurance.

Warranty Repairs. Instruments returned for warranty attention will be repaired and returned or refunded at our option. We recommend that you keep the original packaging materials and shipping carton in case you need to send the instrument back to us for any repairs or return, if possible.
