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.

Fender Vintage Noiseless Pickups

The Fender Vintage Noiseless Single Coil Pickups are a versatile set of bright, crisp and warm sounding pickups which deliver a balanced and smooth tone in a range of pickup positions. Utilizing Alnico 2 magnets the Vintage Noiseless pickups provide fantastic clarity and definition whilst the complex harmonics add a unique flavour to the tone. Based on vintage single coil pickups the Noiseless single coils feature innovative, modern craftsmanship which allows them to deliver a fantastic vintage style single coil tone but without the unwanted hum often associated with vintage single coils.

TBX Tone Control & Mid Boost

Featuring a unique TBX Tone Control the Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster has the ability to shape and mould its tone like never before. The stacked 250k potentiometer runs without the aid of a battery and allows you to boost bass, treble presence and even output. To do this you simply turn the tone control past the 5 marker to start reducing resistance thus adjusting and enhancing the tone.

Additionally the active mid boost circuit can be used to enhance the middle frequencies being output by the guitar by to up to +25dB. Perfect for both clean and distortion tones the mid boost adjusts from 0dB neutral mode right to +25dB which can be used to create some fantastic and unique sounds when combined with the TBX tone control.
