The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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.

  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

The EC-1000 is also stunning in sound, this guitar is most suited to metal like many of ESP's models dedicated to shredding.

The slick, black look of the EC-1000 is accentuated by striking gold hardware, high-quality Tonepros bridge and tailpiece, ESP Locking tuners and flag inlays on the rosewood fingerboard.

The EC-1000 combines a professional solid mahogany body with a set neck that's just as specialist but easy to play due to it's thin U-shaped contour. This allows for the fast playing style that ESP guitars are celebrated for.

ESP devised their Ltd guitar line to be accessible to all musicians who want their dream guitar at an affordable price. Originally designed as professional gigging instruments available off the shelf, they have grown in popularity since the late 90's and the model range has expanded to include nine models, like this critically acclaimed 1000 Series guitar. The Ltd line also includes signature models from some of the world's greatest players including Kirk Hammett, Will Adler and Ronnie Wood.

ESP guitars are renowned for the quality of their construction and it's a well earned distinction, as this quality is present in all their guitars and basses, from their top end signature models through to the more affordable LTD models. ESP and LTD Guitars and Basses feature high quality hardware and design features that are indicative of a company that has spent 36 years designing some of music's most brutal, hard wearing and road worthy instruments.
