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.

Epiphone 1984 Explorer EX w/ EMGs, Alpine White

Details
The Epiphone 1984 Explorer EX w/ EMGs, Alpine White is based on the popular Gibson Explorer which was released with a mahogany body in 1984. The Explorer was favoured for its radical body shape, which includes sharp, asymmetric angles and screams 'heavy metal' at first glance. The body is made from mahogany, for a rich and resonant tone with plenty of deep warmth. The hand-set mahogany neck brings a smooth and full-bodied tone, and it is paired with a rosewood fingerboard for enhanced warmth and beautiful articulation. Powered by a pair of EMG Pickups consisting of a 81 at the bridge and a 85 at the neck; the Explorer EX is certainly not short of powerful, beefy tones that excel when used for rock and metal styles. Equipped with a Locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and Grover machine heads, the Explorer EX guitar provides the guitarist with reliable and stable tuning that will remain locked throughout the night. The Epiphone 1984 Explorer features an Alpine White finish, and black hardware; which together with the sharp body shape, creates the ultimate metal appearance.

Loaded With EMG Pickups

The 1984 EX is equipped with an EMG-85 neck pickup and an EMG-81 bridge pickup, which both have Alnico magnet-loaded coils. The EMGs deliver a beefy low end and a fat top end, as well high volume overdrive ideal for lead guitar. The active EMG pickups are superb at pushing any amp into overdrive, and you can combine the neck and bridge pickups for a head-ringing combo that will cut through any mix.

Crafted With Mahogany Body

A mahogany body gives the Epiphone 1984 Explorer a warm and resonant tone with great sustain, as well as plenty of depth. Mahogany delivers good levels of grind and bite, which works exceptionally well with punchy rock music. The mahogany body also provides durability, and a tone that will mature over the years for a long lasting investment.

Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

The 1984 Explorer EX's neck is made from beautiful mahogany which is sturdy and provides good durability. The mahogany gives the guitar a richer focus, with warm and full undertones; and it is coupled with an equally as warm rosewood fingerboard, ideal for creating articulate tones that are soft yet punchy.

Reliable Hardware

The Epiphone Explorer EX is equipped with rock solid hardware, consisting of a Locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece which is fully adjustable. They are locked in place, which works to keep your tone reliably in tune, and improves sustain. There are also Grover tuners on-board for stability, and the metal 3-way toggle switch ensures years of sturdy use and performance.

The Explorer Series

The 1984 Explorer is based on the Gibson Explorer which was one of the most radically shaped and 'futuristic' electric guitars when it was released. With its sharp, angular body shape, the Explorer screams heavy metal and rock at first glance, and it was especially favoured by rock and metal musicians during the 70s and 80s.
