How does your warranty work?

We offer a limited Lifetime Warranty. The instrument is covered 100% for Manufacturer defects. This will be determined by Kanile`a after visually inspecting the `ukulele. This applies to the first purchaser. The warranty is non transferable. You must provide receipt of purchase. If purchased from a dealer please contact the dealer directly. They will assist you further. Please refer to terms and conditions, Limitation on Obligations and Claim Procedures.
