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.

Spruce Top, Rosewood Back and Sides

The acoustic has a top made from sitka spruce to deliver a rich mellow tone with a broad dynamic range that accommodates any playing style. The top provides crisp, immediate articulation with a fundamental tonality to give the guitars sound plenty of power that’s direct. The Back and sides are crafted from rosewood to give the guitar a strong, clear presence of tone for a sparkling, sizzling sound. The wood is known to provide a scooped midrange, allowing for strong, pronounced low overtones to be produced to create a dark and complex tone. The rosewood and spruce complement each other to allow the Gibson to retain its clarity, no matter how hard the strings ae hit and offer the classic acoustic sound.

L.G. Baggs Lyric Electronics

Gibson’s Songwriter Cutaway features L.R. Bagg’s popular Element Active System which uses a low-profile undersaddle pickup connected to an onboard class A endpin preamp and a soundhole mounted control panel. The Element Session runs off a 9-volt battery that’s housed in L.R Bagg’s battery bag to keep it secure to prevent any tonal loss. Each component is securely hidden away and designed to ensure the guitar’s tone and projection remains pure. The Element electronics offer an incredible dynamic range that deliver a robust, lively, natural acoustic sound thanks to the sensitivity of the pickup.

G Force Auto-Tuning System

The G-Force is an innovative auto-tuning system that works by a mechanical device secured to the headstock. Each machine head contains a small servo motor that can wind the string up or down. Simply push the on button and strum to see this device in action and perfectly tune your guitar. Not only does the G force tuning system provide standard tunings, it also offers alternate and custom tunings, tuning to instruments that are in tune with themselves but not to concert pitch, adding pitch offsets to individual strings, and tuning with a capo. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the G force system provides up to 100 tunings on one single charge, and also allows for manual tuning.

Ornate Details

As well as delivering the perfect voice, the Songwriter Cutaway Progressive features a beautiful collection of ornate details that boast high quality craftsmanship. Its stunning Autumn Burst finish is hand sprayed for a truly unique appearance, as well as a smooth hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard that maximises wood vibrancy.This stunning fingerboard is also decorated in classic mother of pearl blocks, that tie into the headstock design
