My old '77 Ibanez PF200 has a "lifetime" warranty. I wonder if they'd honor it still?

Would you need more than a year? Most defects should show up immediately or within a year.

I'm pretty sure the guitars that have a "lifetime" warranty specify in the fine print that it's exclusive of wear and tear and only covers manufacturing defects.

That's true for all warranties, included those of limited duration (e.g. 1 year). Wear and tear is almost never, ever covered because that's part of playing in the instrument.

The only thing on an electric that can really go bad is the neck and the more expensive the guitar the less likely that is to occur. Yes, it can happen but the odds of it happening are very, very low.

On the other hand, acoustic guitars are more fragile than electrics so lifetime warranties are more beneficial to the consumer. Just as on the electric, the neck on an acoustic can go bad but the body can also split/warp and the bridge can pop off.

Always a warranty, until you need something fixed

Some defects don't show up in one year. A bad neck, for example.

.... sorry, I didn't notice that toneboy mentioned the neck.
