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.

4th Generation Noiseless Pickup

The American Elite bass features Fender’s intuitive 4th generation noiseless pickup, combining the noise free performance of a modern pickup with the vintage style sound of an old pickup. Exclusive to the American Elite series, the noiseless pickup offers incredible tones with enhanced responses without losing any of its warmth. Also featuring a redesigned 18-volt preamp to crank up the bass’ power, the Fender has plenty of headroom, offering pounding tones with little-to-no noise distorting the sound.

HiMass Bridge

As well as offering a wide variety of superb tones, the American Elite P Bass also features a Fender HiMass bridge which improves every note’s sustain and resonance. The bridges design enhances the attack of the bass, creating a lively tone while offering either a string though or top loaded set-up.

Comfortable Neck Profile

The Fender bass features a “C”-shaped maple neck that morphs into a modern "D"-shaped profile, which is not only comfortable for all playing styles, but also allows you to play for longer. The two neck profiles work well together, offering excellent support for the different sides of the neck, providing easier movement across the whole fingerboard.

Heel Truss Rod Adjustment

A set of posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck to increase its stability, whilst providing an excellent resistance to temperature and humidity induced warping. The Fender's truss rod adjustment wheel is placed at the butt end of the neck to provide easier access, allowing for quick neck relief adjustments.

The History of the Precision Bass

Debuted in late 1951, the Precision Bass guitar was not only Fender's first bass guitar, it was the world's first bass guitar and a new kind of instrument. The Precision Bass (Often shortened to P-Bass), has spent well over half a century at the very heart of music of all kinds everywhere, with its two-horned solid body and fretted neck, the Precision Bass profoundly revolutionised music. Reigning ever since as a must-have instrument, this elegantly simple and enormously powerful instrument is the worldwide standard for bass tonality, performance, reliability and overall excellent.
