6 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 6 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 6 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.

Alder Body & Rosewood Fingerboard

The BB424’s body is constructed from alder, a highly popular choice of wood for bass production, producing a deep, smooth tone whilst remaining lightweight and highly durable. The rosewood fingerboard has a 10" radius and features 21 frets with classic white oval inlays, creating a beautiful aesthetic and smooth playing surface. The 5-piece maple/nato neck provides a combination of bright, sweet tonal characteristics, adding plenty of complexity to the highs and thickening up the low end.

Bar/Split Single-Coil Pickups

The BB424 features two powerful pickups, with a bar single-coil pickup at the bridge and a split Single-coil pickup in the middle. These premium-quality pickups deliver a full-bodied sound, offering excellent articulation while remaining dominant in its tone. This is ideal for a range of playing styles from deep, ringing bass tones to fast and aggressive slap bass riffs.

Diagonal Body Thru Stringing & Neck

One of the most unique design aspects of the BB424 is the diagonal body thru stringing. This work by angling the string at 45 degrees at the saddle, reducing stress and securing the tensions of the strings. The larger than normal attachment area to the saddle helps for improved transmission of vibration, resulting in a fuller and more articulate sound. The 5-piece bolt-on neck is constructed from 5-pieces of maple and nato for maximum durability and style. This design helps to prevent the neck from warping or curling over long periods of time.
