4 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 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.

Return of a Classic

The original Silvertone 1478 Electric Guitar became the go-to starter guitar for aspiring musicians, and featured its strikingly dramatic, spaceship design in all catalogues. Moving into the 1970s, Silvertone returned to more visually simple guitars, but the return came when garage rock bands such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys began playing similarly retro instruments. Later, the vintage Silvertones found themselves in the hands of Bon Iver, Beck, Mark Knopfler and many more, and now the reissue brings an updated version to influence many more guitarists to come.

Throwback Design

Few guitars are as striking as the offset Silvertone 1478. The double cut, angular outskirt with an oversized pick guard will turn heads for all the right reasons, and is identical to the original. As prominent as the shape is, it doesn’t interrupt the playability, so your playing will be as eye catching as your guitar’s design.

Classic Single Coil Pickups

One of the most influential features on the original Silvertone electric guitars was the pickups' single coil twang and spring. The tone was easily recognisable, and sought after by many blues and country artists. The Reissue has identical replicas of the originals, so the tone is accessible to a whole new generation. Also retained is the Blender tone knob, which became a classic feature allowing players to merge between all pickup settings for limitless tone variations.

Updated, Refined Features

As brilliant as Silvertone guitars were, they lost marks for their inconsistent fretwork and necks. The Reissue has resolved this problem with a modern C neck shape, and an all-round more reliable build quality. The body is Mahogany whilst the top is Maple to keep the tone deep and rich, with a twang at the top end for extra flare. The 1478 Reissue also features a genuine Bigsby Tremolo bridge system for a more even, trustworthy flux.

SubZero Tube-5W Guitar Amp

The 1 x EL84 Ruby tube is combined with 1 x 12AX7 Ruby tube to create a sound that goes from lush warm clean tones through your dirtier blues drive all the way to blazing rock.

Featuring both a clean and overdrive channels, this amp gives you the option of driving the valves to get a really bluesy crunch, or switching to the clean channel to achieve the characteristic full warm clean sound only found with valves, but without losing any volume.

The 8" Celestion Super 8 speaker means that you're in safe hands when it comes to delivering your desired sound whether at practise or on stage.
