Your Dead Tree guitar comes with a limited lifetime warranty against any defects of materials and workmanship. This warranty is active and long as I am making guitars. This warranty is only transferable to second hand orders upon my inspection of the instrument. Normal wear or abuse are not covered under the warranty. High and low humidity and temperatures can be detrimental to an instrument. The guitar should be kept in a humidity of 40-60% relative humidity and kept at room temperature. Sudden changes of humidity and temperature can cause damage. Damage caused by improper care is not covered under the warranty. All warranty claims are subject to the approval of Dead Tree Guitars. The shipping costs of warranty claims are the sole responsibility of the owner of the guitar.
