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.

Elegant Design with Superb Sound

A satin black smoke finish offset with grained ivoroid binding and pickguard show off the understated beauty of this guitar. The choice of a Sitka Spruce top delivers a bright and clear tone with a warm character. This particular tonewood is extremely vibrant providing an ideal “diaphragm” for transmission of sound on any size and style of stringed instrument. It is the primary top wood for Martin guitars due to its straight, uniform grain, longevity and tensile strength. Combined with Mahogany, the Sitka Spruce top adds a beautiful contrast to the overall appearance of the 000-17E.

Due to it’s rich heritage, Mahogany backs and sides can be heard on loads of old recordings, and the inherent character of the tone lends itself well to blues and roots music to this day. In addition, it also provides a punchier and darker tone, with a prominent ‘woody’ midrange. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge pop against the rich, black satin finish and add extra detail to the overall appearance of this guitar.

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 Preamp

The Martin 000-17E is also equipped with Fishman’s classic Acoustic Matrix Natural preamp. This clever preamp features an ergonomic soundhole-mounted Volume and Tone rotary controls. The benefits of the Matrix VT is that there in no need for control holes to be cut into the side of your guitar, and it is discreet and simple to use.
