The product price includes a one year 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 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.

Artificially-Aged Appearance

The Fender Custom Shop LTD '59 Stratocaster has been elegantly crafted from two-piece select alder and finished in journeyman relic treatment. This artificially-aged finish maintains its authentic appearance, giving it an aged cracked gloss, and the Olympic white colour an almost yellow hue.

As well as this vintage style body, the '59 Stratocaster also features a one-piece AAA flame maple neck with a 1959 C-shaped profile, for added authenticity. This maple neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard featuring 21 jumbo frets, and provides comfort as well as a great tone.

Additional vintage inspired features include, white relic control knobs, 8-hole 3-ply mint green relic pickguard, 6-saddle american vintage synchronized tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines. Overall, a truly unique looking guitar that boasts 1959 in all features.

Classic Electronics

As well as an authentic appearance, the '59 Stratocaster also boasts a vintage inspired sound reminiscent of the 1950's. Equipped with a powerful trio of high-output hand wound Custom Shop Ancho Poblano Stratocaster pickups , the '59 Stratocaster offers all the classic tones you would expect from Fender. Each pickup is precisely calibrated for its position, and the bridge and neck pickups feature special strat blender wiring which blends them together.
