However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

59 Resonator

Resonator Guitars were originally designed to give more volume to guitars in dance bands, however they are now prized by many musicians, and have become a popular choice for blues and bluegrass players due to their distinctive sound.

This fantastic sounding resonator guitar is crafted in Canada, and is made from Masonite with a Maple neck. The 59 Resonator combines a piezo pickup in the cone with ‘56 Lipstick® pickup on the neck producing a distinctive bluesy sound.

The Diamond plate cover not only provides a traditional appearance, but also enhances the tone of the 59 Resonator. The resonator’s unique tone is powerful enough to cut through most mixes and performances far more easily than an acoustic resonator. The additional pickups allow the sound to be amplified and is an ideal choice for live performances and in the studio.

The control layout is simply master volume, master tone and a blend pot. The blend pot allows you to perfectly blend both pickups for a truly distinctive sound. With its bluesy tones and appearance, the 59 Resonator is the perfect choice for Bluegrass players.

Lipstick Pickups

The lipstick-tube pickup was first introduced by Danelectro on their line of electric guitars. The original lipstick-tube pickups were, in fact, manufactured using surplus lipstick tubes that were bought from a cosmetics manufacturer , and featured on many original Danelectro guitars. These surplus lipstick tubes, had the electronics inserted within and therefore made it the lowest cost guitar pickup in the industry at the time.

The current production pickups are not made using surplus lipstick tubes, but rather using tubes machined especially to match their original design. It is crafted from a single-coil magnetic guitar pickup, which has its electronics totally encased in a chrome-plated metal tube. These renowned pickups allow you to achieve a rich sound.
