6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 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 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 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.

Pair of EMG Pickups

The EC-401 is powered by a pair of high output EMG Pickups, consisting of an EMG 81 in the bridge position and an EMG 60 in the neck. The EMG 81 produces an incredibly intense sound, with good amounts of high end cut. For the classic pickup combination, this LTD MH Guitar also features an EMG 60 pickup that has excellent output with clarity and sweet sustain.

Excellent Hardware

The hardware of the EC-401 is reliable and efficient, which includes a Tune-O-Matic Bridge and Grover Tuners. The Tune-O-Matic Bridge offers excellent levels of sustain and stability and the Grover Tuners work reliably to keep your tone locked in tune all night.

3-Piece Mahogany Neck Paired With Rosewood Fingerboard

The 3-piece mahogany neck is sturdy, and more resilient to warping than the classic 1-piece neck. Mahogany as a neck tonewood is durable and offers a full and long-lasting guitar neck. The mahogany and rosewood coupling offers complex highs, warm lows and an overall beautifully soft and mellow tone.

Comfortable & Attractive Body

The classic EC body shape features a single cutaway, which offers easy access to the higher frets and extra comfort. The guitar's body is crafted from mahogany, which provides a rich and resonant tone, ideal for punchy rock music. The guitar features a smooth, black finish with statement binding for a classic, sleek appearance.
