Cordoba Music Group (“CMG”) warrants Córdoba guitars to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for three (3) years from the original purchase date, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. Córdoba ukuleles and “Protégé by Córdoba” instruments are guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Cordoba Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein.*

This warranty is extended to the original retail purchaser only and may not be transferred or assigned to subsequent owners. Your proof of purchase or sales receipt must accompany all requests for warranty coverage. Please contact us for all warranty issues inside the United States of America, Puerto Rico and/or Canada. Warranties for Córdoba instruments purchased or permanently relocated outside of the United States of America, Canada and/or Puerto Rico, if any, will be directed to an authorized distributor or dealer importing Córdoba instruments into their respective territories.

Córdoba makes no other express warranty of any kind whatsoever. All implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, exceeding the specific provisions of this warranty are hereby disclaimed and excluded from this warranty. Córdoba shall not be liable for any special, indirect consequential, incidental or other similar damage suffered by the purchaser or any third party, including without limitation, damages for loss of profits or business or damages resulting from use or performance of the instrument, whether in contract or in tort, even if Córdoba or its authorized representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages, and Córdoba shall not be liable for any expenses, claims or suits arising out of or relating to any of the foregoing.

 

To obtain warranty assistance, the instrument must be taken to an authorized dealer with a copy of the sales receipt to obtain a Returns Authorization prior to return to the manufacturer. All shipping and insurance, including any perceived “collector” value, are the sole responsibility of the original purchaser.

Upon arrival at the Córdoba facility, a determination will be made whether the defect is covered under the terms of the warranty. If the repair is covered under the terms of the warranty, it will be repaired at no cost to the original purchaser including return shipping. If the repair is not covered under warranty, an estimate of the cost of the repair to the original purchaser will be given.
