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

  • 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.

Western Themed

One of the most striking features of the G6121-1955 is its western themed aesthetic appointments. These include the leather side-body trim accented with aged furniture tacks, as well as the stunning motifs along the rosewood fingerboard including cactus, steerheads and fences. Its vibrant tangerine finish gives this guitar a classic look, and the cream binding adds elegance and prestige.

Hollow Body

This stunning guitar is constructed with a hollow chamber using laminated maple along with a mahogany body. Its classic hollow body design offers crisp overtones while enhancing the overall resonance of the guitar, and delivering bright tones. In addition, its hollow chamber offers a lightweight design that can be played all night long.

DynaSonic Pickups

The DynaSonic single-coil pickup has been a Gretsch standard since the late 1940s, and was one of the first pickups to offer individually adjustable pole-pieces. DynaSonic pickups are renowned for offering that classic rockabilly tone, that many retro players love. Wound slightly different to other pickups, the DynaSonic adds more high-end sparkle and delivers shimmering highs with a rich, full bass response. These pickups are ideal for any player who specialises in delicate finger-picked rhythms and flat picked solos.

Classic Bigsby Tailpiece

Like many hollow body guitars by Gretsch, the famous Bigsby tailpiece is a common feature. Its iconic design allows players to add pitch-bending effects to their tone, whilst maintaining an accurate tuning. As well as providing a useful tool, it also adds a authentic appearance to the overall look of the G6121-1955.

Rocking Bar Bridge

The Rocking Bar Bridge is a favourite amongst Gretsch fans due to a smooth glassy tone with enhanced sustain. The updated version of the classic Gretsch Bar bridge features cone shaped post holes allowing the bar to "rock" back and forth when the Bigsby Vibrato is used.
