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!

  • 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.

Sitka Spruce & Mahogany Back and Sides

The choice of a Sitka Spruce top delivers a bright and clear tone with a warm character. This particular tonewood is extremely vibrant providing an ideal “diaphragm” for transmission of sound on any size and style of stringed instrument. It is the primary top wood for Martin guitars due to its straight, uniform grain, longevity and tensile strength. Combined with Mahogany, the Sitka Spruce top adds a beautiful contrast to the overall appearance of the 00L-17E.

Due to it’s rich heritage, Mahogany backs and sides can be heard on loads of old recordings, and the inherent character of the tone lends itself well to blues and roots music to this day. In addition, it also provides a punchier and darker tone, with a prominent ‘woody’ midrange.

Auditorium Body Shape

Its classic hourglass figure means it can sit comfortably on the knee, and is ideal for players of folk and other fingerpicking-heavy styles of music. The shape ensures that it has the perfect balance between playing and comfort and provides an impressive balance across the tonal spectrum. The 00L-17E's overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar.
