Buying Mesa amp from original owner who never registered it?

Post by Chugga-Chugga » Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:06 pm

I did a search, and it looks like people have successfully transferred warranties when they didn't have the original sales receipt, by calling and giving Mesa the serial #. All the posts I read were close to 5 years old and older, and I was wondering if anyone has done so more recently? Just wondering if Mesa possibly had any policy changes. I know I can call them, but they're on holiday break this week and won't reopen until 1/2/2018.

Thanks.

Guess I haven't talked to them myself, but the last I looked into (a year ago) if it they don't have a proof of sale to start the 5 years from then they can use the date of manufacture instead. It'll be written on the underside of the amp chassis.

Unless you have the original sales reciept, warranty coverage will be counted from D.O.M.
