The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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.

Sapele Body with Sitka Spruce Top

With Sapele tone wood for the back and sides the DCPA4 offers a deep, articulate and bright tone perfect for providing a full and glistening tone. Furthermore Sapele is a fairly dense wood which looks similar to the dark nature of Mahogany but includes a distinctive striped grain which looks incredible with the gloss natural lacquer finish. The Sapele body is paired with a solid Sitka Spruce soundboard which is a stiff and light coloured wood. The Sitka Spruce top delivers a sparkling high response and tight, clear attack perfect for pronounced players.

20 Fret Richlite Fingerboard

Featuring an innovative 20 fret Richlite fingerboard the Martin DCPA4 provides a smooth and effortless playability with impressive resonance and fluidity. Richlite is a sustainable material that was original designed as an alternative to Ebony and Rosewood. Constructed from recycled paper and phenolic resin, Richlite has quickly become popular with many guitar manufacturers as it offers a fantastic playability and is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fingerboard woods.

Fishman F1 Analog Preamp

The DCPA4 Performing Artist guitar includes a premium Fishman F1 analog preamp system which captures the natural nuances of the tone wood and allows the DCPA4 to be connected to amplifiers and PA systems. With a simplistic control panel and built in LED tuner the Fishman F1 features on board volume and tone controls for on the fly tonal shaping.
