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 5 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 5 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

  • 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.

Ola Englund

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Ola Englund is a Swedish musician, songwriter, record producer, and guitarist. He is primarily known for his work with Feared, The Haunted and Six Feet Under, and specialises in death metal, groove metal, thrash metal and melodic death metal, and has his own series of signature guitars.

Electronics & Bridge

The Washburn Parralaxe is equipped with a pair of specially designed pickups form Seymour Duncan called "Solar." The Seymour Duncan Solar pickups are unique to Ola Eglund's signature series and deliver a tightly focused sound with the clarity to allow the strings to ring as clear as crystal with every note. Equipped with a Evertune bridge, the Parralaxe is capable of staying perfectly in tune, and therefore provides a more reliable guitar. Ola Englund himself has eliminated the need to carry a tuner with him, thanks to this innovative bridge design.

Controlling these Duncan Solar Humbuckers is easy with the volume and tone control knobs. The 5-way blade allows you to easily select different pickup selections, and even split the humbuckers to make them sound like single coils. These wide choice of versatile tones makes the Parralaxe ideal for recording and touring.

Additional 7th String

The Washburn Parralaxe PX-Solar17ETC features an additional low B string, which will take your music to new lows, as well as offer more versatility to your sound. This extra string will also make this guitar stand out from any crowd, and add a distinctive edge to your performances.

Unique Design

One of the most striking features of the PX-Solar17ETC electric guitar is its distinctive appearance and ornate details. Built for enthusiasts of heavy metal, this guitar is equipped with a matte black finish. This sultry finish not only looks the part, but is also great under stage spotlights, and on photographs as it eliminates that undesired shine that you would usually get with glossy finishes.

The lightweight alder body sports a double cutaway shape, that offers full access to the higher frets and also provides an elegant design that will look great on any stage.

Another striking feature of this guitar is the stunning Ola Englund inlay at the 12th fret, that is simple yet effective in adding a delicate final touch to the overall look of this elegant guitar.
