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.

Artist Signature Series by Fender

The world's greatest artists have come to Fender Custom Shop for decades in search of their perfect instruments. Artfully crafting meticulous replicas using the same techniques and tools used to create the originals, Fender offers the same artist instruments to you, built in the same shop by the same skilled craftsmen.

Fender Vintage Noiseless Pickups

Fender's vintage noiseless single coils are a versatile set of bright, crisp and warm sounding pickups which deliver a balanced and smooth tone. Designed with Alnico 2 magnets, the vintage noiseless pickups provide fantastic clarity and definition whilst the complex harmonics add a unique flavour to the tone. Based on vintage single coil pickups, the noiseless single coils feature innovative, modern craftsmanship to deliver a fantastic vintage style single coil tone without the unwanted hum often associated with vintage single coils.

TBX Tone Control & Mid Boost

Featuring a unique TBX tone control, the Eric Clapton Signature Strat has the ability to shape and mould its tone like never before. The stacked 250k potentiometer runs without the aid of a battery and allows you to boost bass, treble presence and even output. To do this you simply turn the tone control past the 5 marker to start reducing resistance, thus adjusting and enhancing the tone.

Additionally, the active mid boost circuit can be used to enhance the middle frequencies of the guitar by to up to +25dB. Perfect for both clean and distortion tones, the mid boost adjusts from 0dB neutral mode right to +25dB to create some fantastic and unique sounds when combined with the TBX tone control.

Unrivalled Quality and Craftsmanship

Since 1987, the skilled craftsmen in Fender's Corona, California ''dream factory'' have been producing guitars that are known worldwide for their artistry and unrivalled quality. Ranging from the fine to the fantastic, whether it's building a new custom instrument from the ground up or modifying an existing one, their best is the best. These wonderful instruments have been crafted for, and with the input of, the world's finest guitarists such as Clapton, Springsteen, Cray, Gilmour, Townshend, Wilko Johnson and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to name just a few.

The History of the Stratocaster

When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars, delivering an elegantly versatile creation that is both a musical and cultural touchstone. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.
