SPECIAL NOTE - No Warranty on Strings:
Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their life expectancy and reduce their sound quality. On occasion, a string may fail during that final leg of the journey; therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing them as soon as possible. Learning to change strings should be the first lesson learned when embarking on the journey of playing a new instrument.
