5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

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.

Fret-King WVC double coils

Equipped with two double coil pickups, the Fret King Black Label Elise provides you with the perfect tool for achieving a classic tone, ideal for mellow jazz to full bore blues. These Fret-King WVC double coils deliver a unique voice with power and definition, and a tone that you can rely on. Equipped with standard control options including volume and tone control, and a three-way toggle switch, and also a Vari-coil function, which allows the WVCs to be progressively wound back to replicate a classic P90 pickup, or produce sparkling traditional single coil tone. With its full range of unique tones, it is the perfect guitar for players wanting a vintage inspired tone and look.

Structure

The Elise is beautifully crafted from solid mahogany with a mahogany neck. This mahogany body is hand carved from a solid block of wood, and chambered all the way inside providing you with an acoustically tuned cavity. A full length centre block is then added to this construction, and ends just below the tailpiece. Topped with a solid maple cap, which is hand carved both inside and out, providing you with a beautifully arch top capable of delivering a beautiful tone and resonance. This labour intensive process adds a great prestige to this wonderful instrument, and offers high quality.

Unique Set-In Neck Joint

The slick mahogany neck, with deluxe rosewood fingerboard, employs the Fret-King 'Set-in' neck joint, which joins precisely to the body underneath the neck pickup, forming a rigid fixed bond between neck and body, maximising the retention and transmission of the Elise's fundamental acoustic properties. This unique set neck joint offers astounding upper fret access and easy playability.

Vintage Inspired Appearance

The Elise looks as good as it sounds thanks to a full host of traditonal features that replicate the original appointements of the particular style. Two classic 'f' sound holes provide the Elise with a traditional appearance as well as offering an enhanced resonance, by projecting the sound more efficiently, and are an indispensable part of the sound.

Another visual feature, is the stunning Tortoiseshell binding that not only offers a delicate detail, but also frames the solid maple cap nicley. Fret King have succeeded in maintaining the vintage look by incorporating vintage-style control knobs to the design, offering an easy control and a stylish look.
