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.

Mahogany Body & Neck

Featuring a solid Mahogany body with Set-in Mahogany neck the Showdown ML provides a warm and balanced tone with plenty of resonance and sustain due to the high contact nature of the set-in neck. Also delivering plenty of bite and depth the ML shape Mahogany body is finished in a classic black lacquer finish which compliments the detailed tone.

DMT Design Pickups

Loaded with two DMT Designed humbucking pickups including the iconic USA DimeTime humbucker in the bridge position, the Dime Showdown ML delivers a raw and punchy tone with plenty of bottom end and screaming highs. Perfect for a range of hard rock and metal styles the DMT Design humbuckers particularly excel when used for chugging rhythms and fierce lead licks.

Floyd Rose Special Tremolo

For many years Floyd Rose has been the leading manufacturer and designer of floating, locking tremolos. With a design that has stood strong for over 30 years the Floyd Rose locking tremolo allows you to adjust the string tension and pitch with the removable whammy bar to create unique sounds such as dive bombs. Unlike non-locking tremolo's the Floyd Rose bridge can make huge changes in pitch but still retain the initial tuning by the addition of a locking nut at the end of the headstock.

About Dimebag Darrell

Born in 1966, Dimebag Darrell (Darrell Lance Abbott) is best known for his song writing and performing in the iconic metal band Pantera. With an extremely unique playing style and signature tone Dimebag fast became a rising star in the metal world and gained an endorsement with Dean Guitars in the 1980s. Having co-designed the now legendary Dean Razorback just months before his death in 2004 Dimebag Darrell has forever earned his place in metal history with his unique playing style and range of impressive guitar finishes.
