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.

Sophisticated Appearance

The Fender Custom Shop LTD Artisan Telecaster is visually stunning thanks to its distinctive AAA Koa top with classic F-hole. AAA refers to the quality of the wood, and the Artisan's Koa top is definitely worth of this title, as its unique grain means no two guitars are the same. Koa is a popular choice for guitar tops, due to its ability to deliver crispness and definition to the guitar’s voice. Finished with a Tasmanian blackwood body with white binding and a 1-Piece AAA Birdseye Maple Neck, the Artisan is an elegant combination of beautiful tonewoods. The use of AAA maple for the neck provides both aesthetics and function, due to its density and unique grain, and is perfect for all playing styles.


The lacquer-finished Thinline body is equipped with two pickups, including a Custom Shop Handwound '51 Nocaster® Bridge pickup, and a TV Jones® Classic pickup on the neck. Both pickups can be used simultaneously or individually to achieve an authentic growl and grind, a classic twang and also a renowned Telecaster tone. Switching between pickups is easy thanks to the 3-position toggle, which offers combinations of; Bridge Pickup, Bridge and neck pickup, and neck pickup. The reversed control plate makes it easier to quickly access the volume and tone controls and the RSD-designed bridge sports a lower side profile and redesigned brass saddles.

C-Shaped Neck Profile

A comfortable neck profile is important when playing a guitar, and the Artisan features a popular C-Shaped profile. This particular type of neck profile leaves a small pocket of space between the palm of the players hand and the neck of the guitar, allowing more versatility along the fretboard. It also provides a comfortable playing style enabling you to play for longer.
