3 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year 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 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 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 3 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.

Swamp Ash Body, Flamed Maple Top

Schecter's Banshee Elite-8 is a well-balanced guitar from aggressive crunchy sounds to rich, clean tones, perfect for the modern day player. The Flamed Maple top provides a great resonance, and enhances the natural tones of the body wood, whilst its flaming gives the guitar a unique and visually stunning appeal. The Swamp Ash body offers a sweet, airy tone, with firmly rounded lows, pronounced mids, and pleasingly bright highs. The guitar also features Maple black/crème/black binding for a beautiful look, and a Hipshot hardtail bridge with the strings running through the body for incredible string stability.

Maple/Walnut Neck, Ebony Fingerboard

The multi-ply Maple/Walnut neck and Ebony fingerboard has been designed with a thin "C" shape for a smooth, fast play. The Maple/Walnut/Ebony combination produces a well-rounded, bright tone that has an earthy feel to it. The three woods provide the guitars sound with a long sustain, tight, stable tones, firm lows, and a high midrange. It also comes with many other features including Schecter locking machine heads and dot inlays made from mother of pearl on the fretboard.

Schecter Pickups

The Banshee Elite-8 features a set of Schecter's own pickups, the USA SuperCharger Mach-8 that’s designed with ceramic magnets, nickel plated carbon steel poles and split coils. The USA Supercharger humbuckers are the modern version of schecter’s SuperRock pickups, featuring the same forged look and massive pole pieces. The humbuckers offer a distinctive cutting edge blend of power and definition, providing thick, fluid tones, and a wide variety of clean and distorted textures thanks to its split coil.
