The title of this thread is in quotation marks because this is what a seller is claiming in a Craigslist ad (recently there's been some bemoaning the nonsense you find on craigslist ads on another forum...). Here's a link to the ad in question:

https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/msg/6187182207.html

(I ran across this ad on the Facebook Larrivee Guitar Owners page.)

I'm pretty sure Larrivee's warranty is ONLY to the original owner.

This is what they post on Larrivee, which makes me think original owners only.....

*All warranty claims must be accompanied by an original receipt and/or original registration card.

Unless they changed it, it's ONLY to the original owner and that's from Larrivee directly. Whether they've made exceptions or not, no one should expect warranty coverage if they are not the original purchaser, from an authorized Larrivee dealer.

The only exception I can think of is a legitimate defect in a guitar, not caused by humidity issues etc.

   Then, I believe Larrivee would take care of the problem. I  have solid reasons to make that statement. But I will keep those to myself.

I think you spilled the beans.

  Larrivée's warranty is not a "Lifetime Warranty". Nor is it transferable in any way. Larrivée's warranty is a Limited Lifetime Warranty

Thanks, John. You always clear away the speculation with facts. Much appreciated. 

Too bad some people selling Larrivees online can't seem to read (or comprehend what they've read).

As the old Firesign Theater gag went, "This watch has a Limited Lifetime Guarantee. It`s limited to the lifetime of the watch."

so the 1994 Larrivee guitar I have, with the original warranty registration might still be good if i fill it out and send it in to them right?
 Except it's a Vancouver address...... cop

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...

Saw Frank and crew play this live, supposedly for the very first time, in Chicago back in the 70's. What a guitar player!

Saw Frank at Claremont college in the late 60's.  They had Flo and Eddy and did Billy the Mountain.  Classic.
