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
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

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.

About ESP Guitars

Over the past 30 years ESP Guitars have become one of the leading electric guitar and bass manufactures across the globe, specialising in metal and rock instruments. With artist such as James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Alexi Laiho, Richie Sambora, Tom Araya and many more ESP Guitars ensure every one of their guitars is a high performance and professional musical instrument.

Baritone Scale Length

Featuring a 27 inch scale length rather than the traditional 24.75, 25 and 25.5 inch scale lengths the MH-417B provides baritone capabilities. Due to the longer scale length the MH-417B FM optimizes playability and provides advanced tuning stability with a range of low tunings proving particularly favourable with heavy metal players requiring a low and deep tone.

Neck-Thru Construction

The ESP LTD MH-417B has a neck-thru construction which provides advanced sustain and resonance by optimizing the maximum contact between the neck and body joint to allow superior vibration transfer and sustainability perfect for when you need notes to ring out for as long as possible.

Active EMG Pickups

Featuring high output active EMG 81-7 and 707 humbucking pickups the ESP LTD MH-401B delivers a sharp attack and a beefy rhythm tones when in the 81-7 bridge position and a warm and bright tonality when in the 707 neck position. Eliminating the muddy and muffled low B sound of prior 7 string guitar pickups the 81-7 and 707 produce a deep and defined low B response whilst also providing tight, crisp and detailed overall response allowing them to be versatile enough for a huge range of playing styles. EMG pickups are a first choice for many professional musicians due to their incredible tone, reliable active circuitry, high output and low noise.
