Thread Name: Buying a new Martin guitar
Subject: RE: Buying a new Martin guitar
That's a new one on me, Will. I'm looking at the Warranty Registration card for my most recent Martin (August 2010) and it clearly states:-

"Only "C.F. Martin" instruments purchased in the United States or Canada from an Authorised Martin Dealer are covered by the "Limited Warranty" provided by C.F. Martin & Co. Inc., with main offices at 510 Sycamore Street., Nazareth, PA 18064"

And in the Warranty T&Cs in the 'Care & Feeding' book, it states:-

"This warranty is valid only if the instrument is purchased from an authorised C.F. Martin dealer located in the United States and Canada"

Seems pretty unequivocal to me. I reckon your guy was either fibbing, or didn't know the T&Cs of the Martin warranty?
