6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' 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 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.

Authentic Build Quality

The Epiphone Ltd Ed James Bay, revives the mid 1960's design that was renowned for being comfortable, lightweight and able to produce a warm, woody tone. The laminated maple body is coupled with a maple top and delivers an excellent dynamic range, along with versatile tonal characteristics. The vintage-style look is finished with a vibrant cherry gloss with an Ivory colour single layer binding, and adds an extra retro feel to the overall look of the guitar. Extra detail is enhanced by the pair of traditional f-holes, which add to the acoustic projection and keep in style with the original model.

Set Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

Adding to this vintage inspired design is a mahogany set neck, which features a rounded "C" shape and a 25.5" scale, with a simple but elegant rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is nicely finished off with pearloid "dot" inlays, a Delrin ivory colored nut and a historic sloped dovewing headstock.

Sweet Neck P-90 Pickup

Just like the original guitar, this limited edition model is equipped with the same electronics, accurate to the last detail. The "Sweet Neck" P-90 Hx Noiseless Single-Coil is well known for its sonic properties and its ability to deliver a tone without the undesirable ''hum'' that similar pickups might have. This legendary pickup is the only P-90-style pickup currently in production that delivers similar properties to the Gibson P-90 pickups. Players can easily find their perfect tone using the black top hat controls knob, with options for Volume and Tone. Both control knobs also feature metal inserts and CTS potentiometers.

Replicated Hardware & Ornate Details

The attention to detail on the James Bay Century guitar is simply superb, and includes the legendary Wilkinson vintage 3-in-a-row machine heads with plastic ivory buttons. These ivory buttons have a 14:1 tuning ratio and are mounted on a historic sloped dovewing headstock. From the headstock through to the tail-piece, the overall design of this guitar is truly vintage-inspired, and an authentic replica of the original James Bay guitar.

Additional Accessories

No guitar would be complete without all the extras, which is why the James Bay Century Outfit also includes a 1960s style hard case, a custom strap, hand-signed photo and a certificate of authenticity. This Epiphone Ltd Ed James Bay Century also includes a manufacturer lifetime warranty.
