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.

Ibanez AVC9 Artwood, Open-Pore Natural

Details
The Ibanez AVC9 Artwood, Open-Pore Natural projects the sonic pleasures of pre-war guitars, offering both a vintage appearance and tone via its thermo aged process. The AVC9 Artwood is crafted from a range of carefully selected tonewoods including: thermo aged solid mahogany top, mahogany body and neck, and rosewood fingerboard. Together this stunning blend of an all-mahogany body and rosewood fingerboard delivers rich, woody, natural compression, and bright sparkling highs that are ideal for a huge range of genres and playing techniques. Its mahogany top has been treated with a thermo aged process which enables players to achieve tones that a non-thermo aged guitar just cannot replicate, resulting in a louder, more resonant instrument. The Ibanez AVC9 features a grand concert body shape that provides a comfortable playing experience due to its smaller body and tapered waist, making it the ultimate studio and stage guitar. The Ibanez AVC9 offers a superb tone, great projection, comfort, and a timeless appearance retailing at an affordable price.

Grand Concert Body Shape

The Ibanez AVC9 has a grand concert body, which is significantly smaller than the grand auditorium, providing a big sound in a comfortable format. Constructed with a nipped-in waist, and a curvaceous, yet small and sleek body and shorter scale, the grand concert is perfect for the folk genre and fingerpicking styles.

Mahogany Body

The Ibanez AVC9 Artwood features an all-mahogany body, which offers durability and delivers an incredibly rich warmth. The guitar top is constructed from solid mahogany and is treated via Ibanez's thermo aged process, offering a louder, more resonant sound. Mahogany contains distinct character of soft warmth, but is well balanced with a bite of its own. As a top wood, the mahogany offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear and direct focus. Used as back and sides panels, the tonewood provides a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles.

Thermo Aged Tonewoods

Ibanez uses a special process that involves each piece of tonewood being heated in a vacuum in order to release water and decompose any resin contained within the wood. This process results in a light, hard, and stable wood, just like a tonewood that has dried for decades. Thermo-aged wood delivers a spectacular response and a louder sound, along with a full-bodied low-end, and a smooth sustain in the treble strings, which are common characteristics of vintage guitars.

Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

The AVC9's neck is constructed from mahogany, offering durability and resonance. The neck features a soft-V shape neck that offers a better grip and a comfortable playing experience. The reason why many guitar necks are crafted from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. 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.
