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 Sitka Spruce Top & Solid Indian Rosewood Body

The Ibanez AE900 features a solid sitka spruce top that will deliver a broad dynamic range, sparkling high response and a tight, clear attack. Sitka spruce is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright highs. The sitka spruce top is paired with Indian rosewood back and sides, offering a full bass response, bright attack, warm mids, and a punchy overall characteristic. Its solid wood build provides a truly sonically pleasing experience that can accommodate many different genres and playing styles.

Advanced Comfort Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

The AE's neck is constructed from mahogany, offering durability and resonance. The reason why many guitar necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The neck also has an asymmetric shape that adds to the AE900's natural and unique feel. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. The rosewood fingerboard also provides a smooth and energetic playing experience and is finished with a specially designed maple fingerboard inlay, custom of Ibanez.

AE900 Body Shape

The Ibanez AE900 electro acoustic guitar features an AE900 body shape, specifically designed for projection, balance, and ultimate comfort. This particular body shape offers a comfortable playing experience due to its curvaceous nipped in waist and cutaway design that enables players to access more challenging chords higher up the fingerboard.

Scalloped X Bracing

The Ibanez AE900 features a bracing technique designed to enhance and project the AE's sonic characteristics. Bracing a guitar reinforces its structure and protects it from collapsing under string tension. From robust lows, to a smooth pronounced mid section,to bright articulate highs, the AE X bracing design produces the complex overtones that are present only on more high quality acoustic guitars.

AGP10 External Preamp

The Ibanez AE900 comes with an external preamp that has been designed in collaboration with artists and professional sound engineers. Rather than being an on-board preamp, Ibanez have taken the approach that will preserve the guitar and reduce the extra holes that would of been cut in for an on-board preamp. The AGP10 features rotary controls for volume, bass, low-mid, mid, high-mid, treble, and notch frequency, allowing you to shape your tone at the touch of a button. In addition, the AGP10 also features switches for notch filter and phase reverse.

Ibanez Aesthetics

The Ibanez AE900 is a well-crafted, beautifully designed instrument with a full host of decorative features. These features include a simple sound-hole rosette that is inlaid in abalone and maple, which complements its specially designed maple fingerboard inlays. Other ornate details include a unique shaped pickguard that complements its Venetian cutaway design perfectly. The Ibanez signature brand name and logo graces the headstock beautifully and is complemented by contrasting chrome hardware Gotoh tuning machines.
