How To Obtain Warranty Service
In the event of malfunction of your Steinberger instrument, you should notify your nearest Authorized Steinberger Dealer.
The Dealer or Owner must ship the instrument, freight and insurance pre-paid, to the nearest Authorized Steinberger Service Center. If there is no Authorized Steinberger Service Center near you, contact or have your dealer contact Steinberger for information and authorization to return the instrument to Steinberger. No instrument may be returned to Steinberger without such prior Return Authorization. Only Authorized Steinberger Service Centers may perform warranty service and any service performed by unauthorized persons will void this warranty. Steinberger disclaims liability for defects or damage caused by services performed by unauthorized persons or non-warranty service not performed by Steinberger or an Authorized Steinberger Service Center.
When contacting Steinberger, you must include a complete written description of the malfunction of the instrument. If non-warranty work is required or recommended by Steinberger, a quotation will be issued and must be approved by you before any non-warranty work is commenced. You should consider quotations obtained for non-warranty work immediately and advise the Authorized Steinberger Service Center or Steinberger of your wishes. You are not required to purchase non-warranty work in order to obtain service on materials covered by this warranty. Following its inspection of an instrument upon its arrival, Steinberger or the Authorized Steinberger Service Center will advise you or your dealer of the approximate date of completion. The repaired instrument or part will be returned to you or your dealer, freight collect insured.
No representative or other person is authorized to assume for Steinberger any liability except as stated in this warranty. This warranty gives you specific rights, which vary from state to state.
