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 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 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 3 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.

Mahogany Body

Schecter's Damien Platinum-8 is a well-balanced guitar from aggressive crunchy sounds to rich, clean tones, perfect for the modern day player. The body's arched top contour provides a great resonance, enhancing the natural tones of the body wood. The Mahogany body offers naturally warm tones, with a touch of bite for creating tights lows and appealing highs.

Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard

The 3-piece Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard has been designed with a thin "C" shape for a smooth, fast play, and features carbon fiber reinforcement rods for extra strength. The Maple/Rosewood combination produces warm, soft tones with sparkling highs and thick lows. It also comes with many other features including Grover tuners and platinum bat inlays on the fingerboard.

EMG Humbuckers

It has 2 EMG active pickups, producing rich, full bodied tones and a great organic sound. At both the bridge and neck are 808 EMG humbuckers that deliver incredible tones, presence, and dynamics that an 8 string guitar requires. Featuring alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils, the humbuckers eliminates muddy bottom strings whilst offering a tight, responsive sound. The EMG articulates every note the strings may produce, providing an incredibly well-balanced tone with an excellent upper register.
