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 and Maple Neck

The M-400 features a Mahogany body with a bolted on Maple neck and fingerboard to deliver a guitar with an incredibly smooth play that’s perfect for playing rock and metal. The Mahogany body gives the LTD a soft, warm tone that has plenty of depth, producing grind and bite where needed to keep everything balanced. The guitar’s body has a full low end that’s tight and appealing highs. Its Maple neck and fingerboard give the guitar's tone added tightness and some cut to brighten up the sound, helping to add sizzle to the highs, firmness to the lows and give the mid rage a snappy attack with some punch.

Seymour Duncan Pickups

The LTD M-400 Possesses a set of Seymour Duncan pickups, a SN-1 at the neck and a TB-4 at the bridge to offer an aggressive setup. The SH-1, also known as the 59, uses vintage style coils and an alnico 5 bar magnet to deliver a warm airy tone with old school tonal character. The 59 pickup has a bright top end with scooped mids and a versatile tone for playing an array of musical styles. The TB-4, also known as the JB trembucker, has hot coils and an alnico 5 bar magnet to add juice to the bridge position.
