6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' 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 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 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.

Solid Ash Wood Body

The Classic 70s Stratocaster features a solid ash wood body, delivering a classic Fender twang with sweet, airy tones. The lightweight ash provides the guitar with excellent resonance and sustain, offering firm lows, pleasing highs, and a scooped midrange. Other premium features include a 3-ply white pickguard, a vintage-style synchronised tremolo, vintage-style frets, and Gotoh cast/sealed tuners.

Slim C Maple Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

The Fender’s maple neck delivers an incredibly comfortable and smooth feel that adds tightness and cut to the guitars tone, while its slim c profile offers an incredibly fast performance. The maple fingerboard enhances the neck’s naturally bright characteristics, adding extra layers of depth for a truly expressive sound. The use of maple for both neck and fingerboard provides the guitar with sizzling highs, firm lows, and a snappy attack in the midrange.

Custom Vintage-Style Single-Coil Strat Pickups

This classic guitar is equipped with a trio of custom vintage-style single-coil strat pickups, delivering a classic tone perfect for a variety of different music genres. Its SSS configuration delivers an incredibly dynamic range of tones, producing sharp, spanking highs and a soothing, fat low end rumble. Achieving the perfect tone is easy, with control options for volume and tone x 2, as well as a 5-position blade for pickup selection.

The History of the Stratocaster

When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars and is an elegantly versatile creation. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.

Fender Japan Guitars

Fender Japan was established as a way for Fender to market their guitars to the Japanese market, allowing for the creation of low cost Fender guitars that still possess the high expectations and build quality of their American counterparts. Japan is often considered to be one of the leading places in the world for guitar manufacturing, although most of the guitars produced are not sold in the UK the FSR models allow you to purchase an exceptionally high quality and unique guitar.
