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

  • 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.

Inspired by the 1960's

The Epiphone Century Inspired By 1966, revives the mid 1960's design that was renowned for being comfortable, lightweight and able to produce a warm, woody tone. The Laminated Maple body includes a Maple top and is finished with an Ivory colour single layer binding. The vintage-style look is finished with a vibrant cherry aged gloss, and adds an extra retro feel to the overall look of the guitar. Extra detail is enhanced by the traditional f-hole, which shows the 1960's era replica blue sound-hole label.

Adding to this vintage inspired design is the Mahogany neck, which features a rounded "C" shape and a 24.75" scale, with a simple but elegant Rosewood fretboard. The fretboard is nicely finished off with pearloid "dot" inlays, and an original nylon nut

Powered By One Pickup

Powered by the P-90 PRO pickup, which is recognised all over the music industry as the most versatile and powerful single coil pickup available. The P-90 PRO is an extremely sensitive pickup that easily bends to a players unique touch. It's perfect for playing many styles of music including rock and roll, pop and jazz due to its distinctive growl and wide tonal range. It is manufactured from 18 nickel silver, elektrisola magnet wires, cast Alnico V magnets and pole shoes. This powerful pickup is operated with two simple control knobs, for changing the tone and volume. For something so small it certainly provides you with a lot of power.

Solid Hardware

The attention to detail on the Epiphone Century Inspired By 1966 is simply superb, and includes the legendary Wilkinson vintage 3-in-a-row machine heads with plastic ivory buttons. These ivory buttons have a 14:1 tuning ratio and are mounted on a historic sloped dovewing headstock. From the headstock through to the tail-piece, the overall design of this guitar is truly vintage-inspired.
