5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' 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 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 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.

Silvertone 1449 Electric Guitar, Black Silver Flake

Details
The Silvertone 1449 Electric Guitar Reissue is a retro throwback to the 60s in its design, features and manner. The 1449 has been built by Silvertone to be as close a replica as possible to the 1962 original whilst maintaining the distinct sound that inspired thousands of young musicians. It sticks to its roots with exact lipstick profile, single coil pickup replicas to the original, and a popular 60s shape. It features an updated C shape neck profile and a new, through-body bridge system to modernise playability, but the Silvertone 1449 remains an accurate, authentic and stunning update of the original.

Return of a Classic

The original Silvertone 1449 Electric Guitar became a go-to starter guitar for aspiring musicians, not just for the guitar itself, but for the famous amplifier built into the case. Moving into the 1970s, Silvertone fell out of style to more visually simplistic guitars, but the return came when garage rock bands such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys began playing similarly retro instruments. Later, the vintage Silvertones sold themselves to the likes of Bon Iver, Beck, and Mark Knopfler. Now, the reissue brings a new version ready to influence a new breed of modern guitarists.

Throwback Design

The double cut, angular outskirt with an oversized pick guard is one that will turn heads for all the right reasons, and is identical to the original. The high colour contrast with the intricate silver flake gives the Silvertone 1449 reissue a vintage vibe. As prominent as the shape is, it doesn't interrupt the playability, so your playing will get as much attention as your guitar's design.

Classic Single Coil Lipstick Pickups

One of the most influential features of the original Silvertone 1449 was the pickups’ single coil twang and spring. The tone was easily recognisable, and sought after by many blues and country artists, whilst the lipstick shape pushed forward the drive in. The reissue has identical replica pickups to the originals, so the crunchy, high signal sound is accessible to a whole new generation.

Updated, Refined Features

As brilliant as Silvertone guitars were, they lost favour for their inconsistent fretwork and necks. This reissue has resolved this problem with a modern C neck shape, and an all-round more reliable build quality to ensure your guitar plays well. The body is Mahogany whilst the top is Maple to keep the tone deep and rich, with a twang at the top end for extra flare. The 1449 reissue also features a modernised, fully adjustable bridge to supply a thick, resonant tone.
