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 AVD80 Artwood, Natural

Details
The Ibanez AVD80 Artwood, Natural is a truly superb example of quality design, construction, and craftsmanship from Ibanez. The AVD80 is constructed from a range of carefully selected and thermo aged tonewoods including: solid AA adirondack spruce, solid Indian rosewood, and mahogany. Together this stunning blend of thermo aged tonewood produces versatile characteristics, a focused clear sound of deep lows, sparkling bright highs, warm mids, rich distinct warmth, and an overall punchy tone. Each piece of tonewood has been thermo aged which enables players to achieve tones that a non-thermo aged guitar just cannot replicate. The Artwood features a dreadnought body shape that provides a comfortable playing experience for those more suited to bigger bodied guitars, and accommodates many different genres and styles of play. In addition to providing sonic pleasures, the AVD80 boasts a stunning appearance to match, featuring abalone inlays, unique Ibanez custom fingerboard maker design, and Gotoh gold open gear tuners with butterbean knobs. Hard shell case included.

Dreadnought Body Shape

The Ibanez AVD80 features a dreadnought body shape, which not only offers an enormous voice but maintains overall tonal balance. The dreadnought shape was originally designed for hard pick attack, however the AVD80 Artwood is built to handle many different genres and styles of play. The big body is ideal for players with a longer reach, and those more comfortable with the dreadnought size. The sheer volume the AVD80 Artwood can project makes it ideal for the singer/songwriter, as vocalists can really push their diaphragm to its max without losing the sound of the guitar, as it will sing as loud as you do.

Solid AA Adirondack Spruce Top & Solid Indian Rosewood Body

The Ibanez AVD80 features a grade AA adirondack spruce top, that produces a broad dynamic range, and a snappy, crisp tonality. Adirondack spruce defined guitars of the pre-WWII era, offering more dynamics than sitka spruce, with a higher ceiling for volume. An adirondack top has the ability to be driven hard and get louder and louder without losing clarity. The wood itself 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. As well as the beautiful thermo aged top, the AVD80 is paired with solid 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.

Thermo Aged Tonewood

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 AVD80's neck is constructed from mahogany, offering durability and resonance. The mahogany neck features a soft-V shape neck that offers a better grip and a comfortable playing experience. 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 is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, sparkly, tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard also offers smooth and energetic playability, and features specially designed fingerboard markers, inlaid in abalone.

Ibanez Aesthetics

The Ibanez AVD80-NT features a range of eye-catching ornate details that include specially designed abalone inlays, grained ivoroid binding, and gold Gotoh tuners that add to its stunning appearance. In addition, the sound-hole also has an abalone inlaid rosette that stands out beautifully against its thermo aged background.

Features

  • Grade AA Adirondack spruce top offers a broad dynamic range
  • Solid Indian rosewood body produces bright tones
  • Rosewood fingerboard for smooth playability
  • Dreadnought body shape can handle many different genres
  • Abalone inlays for added elegance
  • Thermo aged tonewood offers a vintage tone, reminiscent of pre-war guitars
  • D'Addario NB1253 nickel bronze strings emphasize the natural voice of thermo aged wood with clarity, resonance and projection
