FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) SO WHAT DO I GET IF I DON'T GET THE WARRANTY? Your Premium Diamond Warranty is always included with the purchase of any NEW Diamond guitar from any AUTHORIZED Diamond retailer. All you need is to save your proof of purchase (or hope your retailer did).
2) WHAT IF I BOUGHT MY NEW DIAMOND GUITAR BETWEEN 1/1/17 AND 4/2/17, CAN I STILL GET THE EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN? Yes, just purchase 1 Extended Service Plan for every Diamond guitar you want to cover before 5/31/17 and your set. Purchased before 1/1/17? Sorry. We can't go back forever. :(
3) WILL THE PURCHASE OF 1 EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN COVER ALL 5 OF MY GUITARS? Um, no. It's 1 per guitar. If you have multiple Diamond guitars, just go back and re-register each of them and add in the date of your purchase of your Extended Service Plan. We'll re-verify them and update our records.
4) WHAT IF I DIDN'T GET MY GUITAR FROM YOU, CAN I STILL GET THE WARRANTY? No, sorry. It is only applicable for NEW Diamond guitars purchased from diamondguitars.com
5) HOW DO I GET WARRANTY SERVICE? If you need warranty service, simply head to our Tech Support page and send us as many details as you can. After you've heard from our tech, we'll send you an RA number and the shipping address to send your guitar to. Ship your guitar then simply kick back and let us do our thing.
6) IS SHIPPING COVERED? Shipping to us is covered by you. Shipping back from us is covered by us.
7) CAN I GET THE EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN OUTSIDE THE US AND CANADA? Unfortunately we can't, but it's not our fault!
8) WILL I REALLY GET MY GUITAR REPLACED? As we said above, if we can fix it, we will. If we can't, we'll replace it.
9) WHAT IF YOU DON'T HAVE MY COVERED GUITAR ANYMORE? We'll replace it with a comparable model, if it needs to be replaced. But don't worry, we'll work with you to pick one out.
