B. Hefner Company may not be held liable for any work done on merchandise later found to be defective, nor may modified parts be accepted for refund or exchange. Normal wear and tear does not qualify as damaged or defective.

The warranty will be void if the neck does not receive a hard shell finish within 30 days of delivery. We do not consider oil finishes or poorly applied wipe-on finishes adequate protection.
