Please be aware that your warranty is only valid in the region where you purchased your unit. For instance, if you buy your unit in Germany, then you must have the unit serviced in Germany, or within that region. If you live in South America, you will be interacting with the distributor for the country that you live in. The distributor for your country/territory sets the warranty's period and its rules according to local law. It is for this reason that Line 6 recommends that you always buy your unit locally. Distributors can be found at http://line6.com/find/distributor/.
You will need to present your original, dated proof of purchase to have any warranty work performed at any Line 6 Authorized Service Center for repair.
Q: What is the Line 6 Warranty statement for the US?
A: Line 6 warrants that your new Line 6 product, along with its included power supplies and cables used to supply power, when purchased at an authorized Line 6 retailer located in the Territory, shall be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of One (1) Year from the original date of purchase.
Vacuum tubes, as well as included USB data cables, allen wrenches and foot rubbers are warranted for a period of ninety (90) days from the original date of purchase or unless local statutory law requires otherwise.
Q: Are Line 6 warranties transferable?
A: Line 6 warranties transfer from one end user to another within the original warranty period (as long as the user has the original dated proof of purchase), but not when purchased second hand from a retail outlet.
Q: Do I get a warranty if I bought a unit online, like at eBay?
A: Products purchased from the web store at www.Line6.com, or at the official Line 6 Direct stores on eBay and reverb.com carry a 90-day warranty. If you purchase a Line 6 product sold as new from an authorized Line 6 retailer with an online storefront, the standard warranty applies as if it were purchased in a physical store. If you purchase a used unit from an individual on eBay, you do so at your own risk with no warranty offered by Line 6, unless the seller includes a copy of the original receipt to transfer the warranty to you.
Q: Do I get a warranty if I bought a unit used?
A: The only way to redeem warranty on a used item is to have the original purchase receipt, dated within the product warranty period. So if you fail to get such a receipt, the manufacturers warranty will not be honored.
Q: I bought my gear as a B-stock/Blem/Scratch and Dent. Do I qualify for a warranty?
A: Generally, these products do not qualify for a Line 6 Factory Warranty. The Factory Warranty only applies to products that were purchased as New from an authorized retailer. The exception is B-Stock Helix units sold by Sweetwater.
Products sold as New from authorized retailers are typically very close to full price when compared to other authorized retailers, even when on sale.
Q: What do I do if I need a repair?
A: Please refer to our Product Repair FAQ for detailed instructions.
Q: Does Line 6 offer extended warranties?
A: Currently, Line 6 offers an extended warranty program for Helix products only. Click here for more details.
