Some excellent Silver and Gold Fender service /warranty centers in music shops/Fender dealers have ceased. I'm pretty sure Heart of Texas is still going strong? you might check there.
background: If you are a small dealer and doing warranty work, which doesn't pay well IMHO, and you get swamped with box store gear that needs warranty work it can overwhelm your shop and your regular support for your customers. Dealers want to be fair, but their loyalty is focused on those customers who buy from them of course, not some fella who got a deal at a box store. Human nature I suppose. Check Heart of Texas they are great guys.
If all else fails... buy more tools
