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.

Ibanez AFBV200A Artcore Vintage 4-String Bass Guitar, Tobacco Burst

The Ibanez AFBV200A brings together all the easy playing qualities of an Ibanez bass guitar with the added warmth and tonal density of an acoustic. The short scale neck makes it easy to pick up and play, whilst the 21.5mm thickness at the first fret allows for an easy reach. The AFBV200's two pickups transfer a large sound with a wealth of overtones, and the Maple tonewood body delivers an outstanding sound at a great price.

The Maple construction of the body makes the AFBV200A a bass full of bright, clear sound with an array of tones. The hollow body allows for a massive range of styles to be accessed such as acoustic, jazz, hard rock and everything in between. The subtle Tobacco Burst finish not only looks great, but allows the wood to vibrate and resonate without being disrupted by paint. There’s a pair of Classic Elite pickups designed to work together seamlessly, bringing out the best of the notes you play and the overtones the wood produces.

Short scale necks are a practical design for all bass players, regardless of the person’s size. A shorter scale predominantly boosts the low end, which is ideal for bass guitars. The AFBV200 still has 22 frets, with easy accessibility to the high end. The Rosewood fingerboard is both comfortable and mellow sounding.

About Ibanez

Over the past 30 years, Ibanez Guitars have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for Electric Guitar players pushing the boundaries of music. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination, consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments ever. Although Ibanez guitars have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980’s that they began to form an identity for themselves when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using their instruments. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
