Well damn.... how the heck did that happen...

Not sure. I doubt Sweetwater wouldn't back it regardless.
Not worried about it with an SE anyway. Hehehe

I'm the same way, a warranty on a se isn't something I'd use. Maybe return an se out the gate that's some glaring lemon, but otherwise I'd just start tweaking on it. That's what they're for! Now a warranty on my new car is another story. :)
