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.

  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

Maple Top, Back And Sides

Constructed from an all Maple body the Artstar AS153B produces a focused tone with an impressive sustain and character. With clear and defined upper middle and sparkling highs the Maple body is ideal for chiming chords and super bright lead patterns and also delivers a balanced low response.

Super 58 Pick-Ups

The Super 58 Pick-Ups incorporated into the AS153B are custom designed humbucker pickups designed to deliver a high output tone whilst retaining the sparkle and warmth suited for the jazz/blues playing style.

Three-Piece Set-In Mahogany Neck

The Artstar neck profile is thinner than traditional neck styles, resulting in a more comfortable and fluid playing style.

ART-1 Bridge

The ART-1 Bridge found on the AS153B is paired with the Quik Change II tailpiece to create an exceptional combination that results in precise upheld intonation. This combination of components lets you change strings quickly and with ease, meaning you spend less time preparing your guitar, especially after extended periods of use.

About Ibanez Guitars

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.
