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.

Mahogany Body & Maple Top

The Ibanez is crafted from a Mahogany body to bring a warm tone infused with hints of sharp bite to add plenty of depth, paired with a Maple top to add some sweet tones to the mix, it is then coated in a Violin Sunburst finish to give it an exquisitely beautiful look. The guitar also features a pair of cutaways at the neck joint to allow greater reach to the high frets.

3pc Maple Neck With a Bound Ebony Fingerboard

The three-piece Maple neck brings to the Ibanez the perfect amount of sustain by efficiently transferring the resonant energy of the strings to the body as well as providing the ability for a smooth fast play. The guitar also features an Ebony fingerboard with a classic "old banjo" inlay design that compliments its vintage style, and with a smooth neck heel to allow the guitar to sit closer to your body to provide a more accommodating playing position.

Super 80 "Flying Finger" Pickups

The AR725 features a set of Super 80 pickups that are situated at the bridge and neck positions to offer a classic high-output tone that produces plenty of sparkle when needed, as well as satisfactory amounts of brightness and clarity no matter the volume level, these pickups compliment the guitars tonewoods perfectly. With the ability to control the tone of each pickup separately and adjust the volumes to match your needs, and with a three-way switch to provide the ability to either use each pickup individually or mix them together, the Ibanez is more than capable to match any playing style with exceptional tones.

About Ibanez

Over the past 30 years, Ibanez Guitars have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for Electric Guitar players pushing the boundaries of music. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination, consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments ever. Although Ibanez guitars have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980’s that they began to form an identity for themselves when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using their instruments. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
