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.

Seymour Duncan Pickups

The Blackjack A8 is heavily equipped with high quality Seymour Duncan (SD) pickups, that offer a variety of great tones. Located in the bridge, an SD Nazgul pickup provides heavy saturation and a fast response for an aggressive and articulate attack such as heavy metal. Combined with this tone is the SD Sentient pickup, located on the bridge which offers a warm, modern classic tone with tight articulation. Overall, you can achieve a versatile sound, along with the additional strings and add more depth to your performances.

String-Thru Body

The Blackjack A8 incorporates a Hipshot Hardtail bridge with string-thru body to provide improved tonality and sustain by transferring vibrations and resonance from the string to the body as it goes over the tailpiece and passes through the body. It also provides reliable tuning, ensuring your guitar stays in tune for longer.

Stylish Looks

Crafted with a solid mahogany body, the A8 offers naturally rich, warm tones, with a balance of grind and bite to create tights lows and appealing highs. The wood offers the guitar excellent amounts of depth and helps provide an incredible sustain. The mahogany body features an Avenger body shape, which include its smooth curves and pointed upper bout, making it both comfortable and stylish. Finished in a sultry glossy black finish, along with all black hardware, the A8 offers a visually stunning look that is both stylish and unique, and will stand out from any crowd.
