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.

Yamaha’s A.I.R. (Alternative Internal Resonance) Design

Yamaha’s own Alternative Internal Resonance technology helps to keep the guitar light as possible whilst not compromising on sound quality and performance value. The body is comprised of a lightweight wooden core sandwiched between hard woods on the top and back. There are also three metal tubed installed underneath the bridge that transmit string vibration to the body and return body vibration to the bridge for maximum efficiency. Additionally, there are special sound tubes passing through the body that produce a rich resonance in the core material. When the backboard resonates, the entire body reacts, creating a full and articulate resonant tone.

Maple Neck and Rosewood Fretboard

The Maple neck features an increased neck mass which helps to contribute to a richer sound and results in a very-fast neck. This is ideal for the more aggressive player, making chord changes and fast riffs easier to play. The Rosewood fretboard is the same as found on the RGX series guitars with a medium thickness. This helps to produce the articulate yet thick bass tone the BRX5A2 delivers.

Custom Bridge & Pickups

One of the most unique features of the RBX5A2 is the custom designed pickups from Yamaha. These original pickups developed by Yamaha have been incorporated to produce a powerful and thick tone that is also highly versatile and can be crafted to suit the player. The bridge is also another original design from Yamaha, resulting in a compact, lightweight bridge that improves efficiency and performance. The bridge is designed by removing protruding screws to improve the performance when playing closer to the bridge, there are also sound tubes underneath the bridge that transmit string vibration direct to the body for an exceptionally dominant tone.

LED Pickup Indicator

Another unique feature of this bass guitar is the LED pickup indicators which are located on the volume and pickup selector controls. Not only are these LED indicators eye-catching, they also provide a visual representation of the pickup in use and keep your controls lit in darker environments.
