Important Care Instructions
Your instrument is constructed from solid wood that was carefully dried and seasoned. Solid wood will absorb moisture in wet climates and give off moisture in dry climates. If you live in a desert, high mountain, or cold winter region, you will experience dry weather from time to time which could crack your guitar. If not taken care of properly, your guitar will crack. This damage is very serious and is not covered by this limited warranty, but can easily be prevented by storing your guitar in its case and by using a sound hole humidifier.
To assist in confirming the original purchase, please complete and return the Owner Registration Card provided at time of purchase to Bethany Guitars. Completion and return of the Owner Registration Card is not a condition of this Limited Lifetime Warranty.
