SPECIAL NOTE; No Warranty on Strings:
recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you
receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever
begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect
the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that
a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it
is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and
consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a
student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are
a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you
store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you
pick it up again.
