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.

Silvertone 955 Acoustic Guitar, Black

The Silvertone 955 Acoustic Guitar Reissue is a throwback to the roots of rock. The 955 Reissue is as close a replica as possible to the original - the 26955. The original block inlay feature has been kept, but updated herringbone binding and a sound hole rosette have brought forward the 955 into the 21st century. It also has an Engelmann Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, which support the resonant dreadnought sound. The Silvertone 955 is a practical, authentic, and stunning update of the original.

Return of a Classic

The original Silvertone 955 Acoustic Guitar was originally for the Canadian market, setting itself up as a middle ground for guitarists with its more classic dreadnought size and shape. The 955 produced a great sound for both picking and strumming ideal for multiple styles and genres. The Silvertone 955 Reissue will allow for another generation to pick up and play this adaptable, great sounding guitar with a classic tone.

Throwback Design

The 955 has a timeless design, and its traditional dreadnought body is one that has stood the test of time as practical with a balanced sound. The tortoise shell pick guard against a black finish is a smart, modern update, whilst the centre block inlays have been kept to ensure the history of the guitar is still present. The original 955 was a relatively rare guitar, so the reissue brings a whole new generation to its modern looks, yet it still retains Silvertone’s sought after, vintage sound.

Updated, Refined Features

As effective as the Silvertone 955 acoustic guitars were in the period, the woods used and the production numbers meant that it is rare to find one that has physically stood the test of time. The Reissue has resolved this by updating the woods to an Engelmann Spruce top, with Mahogany sides for practicality and an enhanced sound. Also present is a two way, reinforced truss rod, so the neck stays straight for longer and can be easily adjusted to your requirements. The 955's new adjustments and refinements make it ideal for developing your skills on.
