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!

  • 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.

A Classic Design with a Twist

The Fender American Elite P-Bass is a modern update on one of Fender’s most classic designs, with revolutionary technology and sound, the American Elite Precision Bass is an entirely new beast of a bass. Featuring an alder body, this iconic bass provides ergonomic contours for a comfortable play. As well as body shape, the Elite P-Bass is equipped with a full host of classic ornate details including a black pickguard, knurled flat-top control knobs, white pearloid dot inlays, 3-colour sunburst finish, and a traditional Fender headstock. In addition, the stunning instrument is also complete with an Elite molded case for safely transporting between gigs.

Comfortable Neck Profile

Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the new genuine bone nut morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics.

A Revolutionary Sound For the Modern Player

Designed for the modern bassist, the American Elite Precision Bass pushes the boundaries of standard bass guitar design, providing a multi-faceted performer with classic style, exceptional feel and a versatile tone, as well as a delivering a giant sound that will leave others in the dust. Equipped with Fender's new 4th generation noiseless pickup technology, the American Elite Bass combines noise-free performance with authentic vintage-style sound that doesn't sacrifice any warmth. In addition, there is also an Elite Precision Baas pickup in the middle position offering that classic tone that Fender enthusiasts will love. This versatile bass has another trick up it sleeve with the additional 18-volt preamp, which allows players to crank up the power for even more signal quality for chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise. Overall, the American Elite P-Bass provides a workhorse bass guitar that wil outshine any stage.

Graphite Support Rods

Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting temperature and humidity induced warping. This is a particular advantage to players who travel and experience a change in temperature, which ensures your cherished instrument is always ready to play.

HiMass Vintage Bridge

The HiMass Vintage bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with mammoth punch and near-endless sustain while allowing either top-load or strings-thru-body stringing. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments simple and easy.
