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.

Classic Explorer Body Shape

The Epiphone Ltd Ed. Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan features the classic Explorer body shape, providing comfortable playability and show-stopping looks. Crafted from mahogany and topped with maple, players can achieve a woody tone with plenty of bite. Finally, a walnut gloss finish is added to this guitar, along with Ivory and Black binding.

1959 Rounded “C” Neck Profile

In addition to the body woods, this limited edition Lee Malia guitar also features a mahogany neck in a 1959 round ''C'' profile, offering comfortable and flexible hand movement across the whole neck.

Angled Headstock Increases String Pressure

In addition to the neck and fingerboard, the headstock is carefully angled at 17 degrees, which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay in the nut slots. In addition, an increase in string pressure also means there is no loss of string vibration between the nut and the tuners, which equals better sustain and an overall smooth play.

LockTone Tune-O-Matic Bridge

Tune-O-Matic bridges are an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to their stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Unlike other systems that require tools to adjust and remove, the new LockTone bridge automatically locks the tune-o-matic and the stopbar onto their posts for added security and improved sustain. Overall this modern innovation will provide optimum reliability and ease-of-play, perfect for gigging musicians.

Pickups Deliver High Gain

Lee Malia is renowned for his distinctive tone, and has used a powerful combination of a P-94 single coil pickup and a Gibson 84T-LM humbucker on this limited edition model. The P-94 is located in the neck position, and offers more sustain and output than a traditional single coil pickup but with deep lows, growling mids and sizzling highs. The Gibson 84T-LM humbucker is located in the bridge position and has been especially designed for Lee Malia. This pickup delivers excellent gain and powerful mids, perfect for playing leads and main riffs. In addition, a ''dummy coil'' is also incorporated underneath the pickguard, and cancels the undesirable ''hum'' when using the single coil pickup.

About Lee Malia

Lee Malia is best known as the guitarist of 'Bring me the Horizon'. Originating from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, this 5-piece rock group formed in 2004 and have been a success ever since. This limited edition guitar was built in collaboration with Lee, and built to his exact specifications.
