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.

Thermal Series

Takamine’s Thermal Series of guitars display an innovative method for wood craftsmanship. The Spruce tops are put in a low oxygen oven and left to bake. This causes an accelerated aging process which results in the guitars sounding historic. This innovative way of building guitars means that your instrument has the strength and reliability of a new instrument, with the warm tone and response of a vintage one.

TLD-2 Preamp

Subtle differences can make all the difference when searching for a premium tone. Takamine has equipped the EF450C-TT with a discrete TLD-2 pickup. This system has a naturally warm tonal response that complements you guitar. There are three EQ controls that can be accessed from the soundhole which offer any adjustments you should require. The TLD-2 leaves the EF450C-TT’s wood pattern and shape unaltered for the smoothest sound.
