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.

2017 Hummingbird

Introduced in 1960 as Gibson's first square-shouldered dreadnought, the Hummingbird arrived at the dawn of a new era in music, and was rapidly embraced by the prime movers on the scene. Built with Thermally Cured Sitka spruce top, the 2017 Hummingbird Vintage reflects the appearance and performance of those early iconic instruments.

Sitka Spruce & Mahogany

The Gibson Hummingbird has a top made from sitka spruce to deliver a richly mellow tone with a broad dynamic range that accommodates any playing style. The top provides crisp, immediate articulation with a fundamental tonality to give the guitars sound plenty of power that’s direct. The Back and sides are crafted from mahogany to give the guitar a strong, clear presence of tone for a rich, warm sound. Mahogany is known for providing a mid-range character, as well as a balanced tone with a dynamic range. The mahogany and spruce complement each other to allow the Gibson to retain its clarity, no matter how hard the strings are hit and offer the classic acoustic sound.

Dreadnought

This renowned body shape has been a popular choice for acoustic guitars for many years now due to its versatile properties. The dreadnought body shape maintains the overall balance of your tone, and delivers deep lows as well as crisp highs. Its classic shape offers comfort to the players, and is ideal for flatpickers and strummers.

Comfortable Neck Profile

With its jumbo size and nipped in waist, the SJ-200 is a comfortable guitar to play. As well as a comfy body shape, the round neck profile also adds to the comfort. A compound dovetail joint, secured with hide glue at the 14th fret offers a tighter joint and easier for the vibrations to travel from the neck to the body, thus enhancing the sound transfer. This also provides an ideal neck length for an enjoyable performance.

Ornate Details

Not only does the Gibson Hummingbird Vintage Acoustic Guitar provide a beautiful tone, it also includes a full host of ornate details that make it worthy of wearing the Gibson name. Its iconic hand sprayed finish replicates the thermally-aged process for a legendary Gibson Acoustic vintage sound and appearance. A great deal of attention has gone into every aspect of this guitar, including hand crafted details. Its handmade vintage pickguard has been meticulously hand painted with a delicate floral design, which adds the unique appearance of the Hummingbird. As well as this, its Gotoh Relic tuners provide 'period correct ' style tuners for added authenticity and precise tuning. This stunning acoustic guitar also includes a black hardshell case with plush-lined interior for the ultimate protection during transit.
