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.

If you love aggressive playing styles and genres like old school metal, garage, thrash punk, drop tunings, and other heavy rock styles, the Blackouts AHB-1 may just be your thing.

An Active Humbucker with Balanced Inputs

The Seymour Duncan Blackouts AHB-1 Neck pickup, Black, is a 9-volt active humbucker which boasts balanced inputs as opposed to some others who use unbalanced inputs in a differential preamp. The latter method doesn't seem to cancel hum effectively, but the Blackouts AHB-1 creates a tone of an active design, with balanced inputs, thanks to engineer findings. Expect 12dB to 14dB less noise and more tone, with more lows, more highs, and more output.

Bridge Position Also Available

The Blackouts AHB-1 is also available in a bridge model here on or as a two-pickup set. As with all versions of the AHB-1, this neck pickup comes with the necessary mounting hardware, including pots, jack, and a battery clip.

Recommended for Humbucker Guitars

The AHB-1 works great with all humbucker guitars and the blade magnets make this pickup suitable for both humbucker and Trembucker string spacings.
