  • 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!

  • 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.

Gordon Giltrap

Gordon Giltrap is highly regarded as one of the worlds greatest guitar players. He has been at the forefront of acoustic guitar playing since the late 1960s and has released more than thirty albums in his four decades in the music business. Over that time he has worked or collaborated with so many great names including Sir Cliff Richard, Brian May, Midge Ure, and Martin Taylor.

Wilkinson WVC Humbuckers

Wilkinson WVC humbuckers give the Elise a voice with unassailable authenticity, definition and the power required for everything from mellow jazz to full bore blues. The Wilkinson WDGa mini neck and WVC bridge double coil pickups provide a vast amount of superb, classic tones due to their historically accurate designs. These humbuckers can be easily controlled with the three-way toggle switch, which allows you to choose the perfect tone. In addition, the Elise is also fitted with the Fret-King 'Vari-coil', allowing the pickups to be progressively wound back to emulate a P90, or produce sparkling traditional single coil tone.

Vintage Appearance

The Fret King Elise GG offers both a a high quality sound with a vintage tone, and features many vintage characteristics to match. Equipped with an ornate Inlaid Fret-King ‘Crown’ tailpiece, which provides a great function and also adds intricate detail to the overall appearance. Another distinctive feature includes the classic 'f' holes, that maintain the Elise's traditional look, as well as adding extra resonance to the sound of the guitar. Finally, finished in a beautiful violin gloss with a antique sunburst colour, the stunning grain of the figured flamed maple top is visible, and gives the Elise a stunning visual impact.

Set-In Neck

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.
