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.

Iconic Les Paul Design

Crafted from sturdy mahogany topped with plain maple veneer, the guitar delivers a beautifully warm tone with plenty of resonance ideal for searing leads and powerful licks. Mahogany is known for its pleasant characteristics, offering players balanced tones with excellent grind and bite to cut through dense mixes. The classic Les Paul shape embodies the essence of the original ones created by Les Paul himself, offering a truly iconic design enhanced by the high-quality craftsmanship of Epiphone.

Comfortable SlimTaper Profile

The smooth mahogany neck is designed with a classic 1960s SlimTaper neck profile, featuring a comfortable ‘’D’’ shape to provide an enhanced playing experience. Originally introduced and made famous by many 1960s era, Kalamazoo-made, Gibson and Epiphone guitars, the profile is designed with the perfect thickness for a stable neck and a comfortably, speedy performance. The neck is coupled with an ebony fingerboard, adding an incredibly fast attack with muscular lows, snappy highs, and enhanced the mahogany with extra warmth and openness.

EMG 81 & 707 Humbuckers

For the 7-string version of Matt’s signature Les Paul, the EMG 81 pickup is coupled with their 707 humbucker, eliminating the common problem of a muddy low B string that lacks rich harmonic character. Manufactured with an alnico V magnet and wide aperture coils, the EMG 707 offers an enhanced low B string, whilst still delivering a balanced tone. The EMG 81 is placed at the bridge position and features ceramic magnets, delivering detailed intensity with plenty of high end cut and sustain.

Tune-O-Matic-7 Bridge

Tune-O-Matic bridges are an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to their stability, reliability, comfortable playing position, and impressive sustain. A specialised version of the tune-o-matic bridge is used for the Signature Les Paul, specifically designed to accommodate its 7-string setup. This bridge also automatically locks the tune-o-matic and the stopbar onto their posts, improving string security and enhancing the overall sustain.
