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 4 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 4 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.

Reissued for the Player of Today

Manufactured by the Harmony Company between 1959 and 1962, the Silvertone 1423 Electric Guitar was known as the Jupiter H49 from the Stratotone Series. Often referred to as a ''Jupiter'', this reissued solid body electric guitar has a unique blender control set-up. Each pick-up has a separate volume and tone control and there is a ''blend'' control knob which alters the balance between both pickups when the selector switch is in the middle position.

Upgraded Pick-Ups and Hardware

The Silvertone 1423 has a pair of Custom Duncan-Designed humbucker pick-ups manufactured to capture and recreate the tone from the original series. With a fully adjustable bridge, providing accurate intonation, and a die-cast tailpiece there's been a significant upgrade on the hardware from the original series bringing this guitar right into the 21st century.

Improved Playability

This reissued guitar bucks the trend of the original by featuring a comfortable (and consistent) C-shaped neck with precise fret work. A two-way truss rod provides dependable neck adjustments to suit all playing styles.
